Shell Ear Stud
Reconnect Earring Collection
Beyond its enchanting appearance, this shell ear stud is designed to inspire contemplation about the unique significance of these spe-shell creatures. Scallops, clams, and oysters are not merely luxury seafood; they are essential custodians of our oceans, playing a vital role in maintaining cleanliness and balance. This ear stud serves as a poignant reminder that we must not take these marine wonders for granted.
While these seafloor-dwellers filter out algae and protect aquatic environments, their journey to our plates often involves destructive practices, such as bottom trawling. This method wreaks havoc on seafloor habitats, disrupting deep-sea coral and sponge ecosystems, releasing carbon stored in sediments, and contributing to environmental degradation.
More than a mere mermaidcore accessory, our Scallop Earring encourages a profound realization—our choices wield influence over our planet, for better or worse. Wearing this small shell stud earring is a declaration that oysters and scallops are integral to the marine ecosystem and best left undisturbed in the ocean.
At Jana Reinhardt, safeguarding the seas and our global environment is paramount. Each piece of our jewellery is meticulously handcrafted with sustainability in mind. We eschew gold-plating, opting for recycled metals and plastic free packaging to ensure that your silver scallop jewelry or gold shell necklace is a testament to beauty without compromising our precious environment.
