|Every piece of jewelry offered by Waltzing Willow is made of .925 pure sterling silver. Many pieces are finished in fine silver (.999 pure) and/or special finishes such as rhodium (a member of the platinum family of precious metals) to prevent tarnishing. Several designs include genuine pearls or gemstones, and some are detailed in genuine 14kt. gold. Every design in this collection is hand selected by Susan Maxwell Schmidt, the internationally-collected jewelry artist behind LongLocks HairSticks, and every piece is sure to make you smile!
