Yin and Yang Earrings Chinese Philosophy Dark and Light Charm Earrings Black and White Earrings Round Earrings Peace,harmony and balance come to mind when I look at these yin and yang earrings. According to Wikipedia "In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang (also yin-yang or yin yang, 陰陽 yīnyáng "dark—bright") describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. Many tangible dualities (such as light and dark, fire and water, expanding and contracting) are thought of as physical manifestations of the duality symbolized by yin and yang. This duality lies at the origins of many branches of classical Chinese science and philosophy, as well as being a primary guideline of traditional Chinese medicine, and a central principle of different forms of Chinese martial arts and exercise. Duality is found in many belief systems, but Yin and Yang are parts of a Oneness that is also equated with the Tao." The charms are silver tone metal alloy (lead and nickle free) and black and white enamel . The charm measures 25x20 mm and are attached to a pair of silver tone fish hook ear wires.
