This is a beautiful set of premium fordite earrings with lots of deep red and nice patterns. I use solid argentium sterling silver for the ear wires and rings that hold the fordite stones. Argentium sterling is .925 silver that is tarnish resistant. It's more expensive than standard sterling but the cost is well worth the price as it makes your silver ear wires bright and really easy to keep clean. This set is nicely sized with the stones being top domed with flat backs. Fordite is light weight so these are not heavy. The fordite is about 14 mm tall. It originated at the plant at Parkway in Toledo Ohio.

Fordite is recycled automotive paint sourced primarily from automotive factories. It forms in thin layers as car parts are painted on the racks that hold them in place. After hundreds of trips through the booth where the paint is sprayed then baked the excess buildup is scraped off the racks. We buy this waste paint in rough chunks and recycle it into beautiful jewelry. It?s said it takes almost a thousand layers of paint to make a one inch thick piece of fordite. The original fordite came from Ford Motors in Detroit hence the name Ford-ite. Fordite from prior to 1978 can contain lead. All of our fordite is either current or from the early 2000?s so it?s not lead based.
