These beautiful sterling silver tree of life earrings were hand cut from a very rare coin minted only in 1993. They were minted on the island of Niue which is off the coast of New Zealand and were minted for a very special purpose. The coin was what is called an FAO issue, and was minted to help bring notice to world hunger. This design has been one of the most popular pieces we do in our over 900 piece line. This is the first time we are offering it in sterling silver. After being hand cut and polished the earrings are mounted on sterling silver ear wires. Really beautiful when being worn!
