Earrings made with etched silver heart milagros, natural diamond, oxidized sterling silver, 1 1/2"
Milagro...The Spanish word for miracle. These folk symbols are traditionally pinned to an altar or church wall as an expression of gratitude for a miracle that has occurred or as a prayerful petition for help.
Our silver and golden Milagros are cast from antique originals found within Mexico. Our antique brass heart Milagros are reclaimed pieces from alters within the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a sacred pilgrimage site in Mexico City.
The heart Milagros signifies faith, love and gratitude. The eye symbolizes protection and clarity. Animals and leaves represent our connection to the natural world. Images of people offer health and healing.
