The singles are one of a kind earrings to mix and match to your own desire.They are categorised by gemstone and can be matched as a pair. Or you can keep it single.​

Dalmatian jasper, also known as Dalmatian stone or simply Dalmatian, gets its name from its spotted appearance. It is typically found in Chihuahua, Mexico. The name is a bit misleading because it's not actually jasper. It's an igneous microcrystalline quartz with a mixture of other minerals creating the speckled look. The dark spots are created by black tourmaline deposits. 
Interesting disingenuous fact: Dalmatian is of particular use when feeling stuck in life, it helps to transform outworn thinking patterns or overanalysing life - brings joy and positivity. It has also been used to calm, train and communicate with animals. Non scientific yet might be useful.

It's unique opaque rock-like appearance combines beautifully with either gold, silver or blackened silver. They all have their own signature and shape. Mix studs with dangling earrings for extra playfulness.
