There is a long standing tradition in Mexico and other areas of Latin America where small metal charms called "milagros" (miracles) are used to petition saints for guidance, help and protection. The Milagros collection embraces the rich history and traditions of Mexico and shares charmed blessings all around. These handcrafted earrings feature silver hardware, an animal milagro, and a large freshwater pearl. Approximately 2" in length. Fairly traded.
