Alpaca silver earrings. Handmade by women outside of Taxco, Mexico. The red stone is a dyed composite stone, called the "red spider stone" by artisans.
Alpaca silver is a mix of iron, copper, and nickel. These earring backs do contain nickel, so they aren't the greatest for sensitive ears. If nickel doesn't bother you, these earrings are keepers: they never tarnish or change colors!
