Eternal Knot Shambala Earrings, Alpaca Silver
Contrary to what its name suggests, alpaca silver has nothing to do with alpacas or silver. It is based off a Chinese formulation of nickel silver (a type of copper alloy containing nickel and zinc) named paktong, translated in English to “white copper.”
The eternal knot or endless knot is one of the eight auspicious Buddhist symbols. It can mean the oneness of all life or the continuous stream of consciousness or the fact that life continues until you break the wheel of rebirth.
In any event, it's good to carry around an auspicious symbol on your ear. N'est pas?
