The Arinna Earrings get their name from the Sun Goddess of Arinna, the chief diety of the ancient Hittite people who occupied modern day Turkey between 1700 and 1200 BC.
The Sun Goddess, represented as a woman with a sun disc halo (see photos) was considered the to be "the Queen of all lands". Kings were coronated in the holy city of Arinna and Queens often dedicated solar discs to the Sun Goddess.
Small figurines were hand carved and cast in gold by the Hittie people as an amulet made to be worn around the neck acting as a portable representation of the Sun Goddess of Arinna.
The Arinna Earrings are composed of silver circles overlaid onto brass discs with lines of texture that emit rays like the sun. Decorative silver wire elements connect the body of the piece to two jump rings that allow the earrings to articulate, giving them a nice sense of movement.

Metal and stone are natural materials, and it is in their nature to react to environments and change over time, just like you. Our pieces are made to be worn regularly, but with the love of everyday wear and tear nicks, scratches, and even tarnishing can occur. To some, these signs of age is part of the memory of the piece, adds character, and signifies its journey alongside you. But I understand wanting to keep your jewelry bright and shiny so here are some tips to keep your jewelry looking lustrous.
