Vintage Red Cross button and molten drop garnet earrings, with handmade chain links and ear wires. These earrings are lightweight, and are about 2" long. Textured and rustic, with my signature molten drop back, the garnet and the button make for a really cool pair of asymmetrical earrings. Sterling Silver.
Buttons like these were worn during WW1 to show support or involvement with the Red Cross on the homefront during the war. These buttons were given out for contributions to the organization, and showed patriotism and support for the troops, and no doubt encouraged others to do the same.
