These cute sterling silver Lighthouse earrings were hand cut from a coin minted in Barbados from 1976 -2001, The coin features an image of the South point lighthouse which looks over the Atlantic as well as the Caribbean ocean. The coin is a perfect size for earrings measuring 3/4″ in diameter and are also very light so comfortable to wear. We have offered these earrings for years in our two tone finish and are just now offering them in sterling silver. The earrings are mounted on sterling silver ear wires that work well for the design. Great gift for that lighthouse lover on your list!
