These beautiful blue/green verdigris copper earrings represent love, hope and the duality of nature.
The ear wires are made of pure copper with a lovely leaf detail. The ginkgo leaf charms are 1 inch by 1 inch (2.5 x 2.5 cm) and have a beautiful blue/green verdigris patina. The entire earring dangles only 1 inch (2.5 cm) from the bottom of the ear wire but make a big statement for peace on earth.
A powerful example of the importance of the ginkgo tree as a symbol for hope, is the survival of the gingko tree, known as the “bearer of hope” that survived the bombing in Hiroshima. This tree is regarded as a symbol of hope, and prayers for peace and healthfulness have been engraved into its bark.
The gingko tree has also represented the theme of duality in various cultures throughout history, which stems from its unique botanical form. Ginkgo trees are dioecious, meaning that each ginkgo tree has either male or female sexual organs. Additionally, the ginkgo’s leaves often appear to have two lobes that are split halfway down the middle.
Numerous studies have been conducted to confirm the validity of the ginkgo as a medicinal remedy to improve brain function and blood circulation. The effect of ginkgo supplements for patients with diagnosed dementia, memory impairment, cerebral insufficiency and tinnitus have all been researched.
