Enamel Yin Yang symbols are encased in Sterling Silver. The earrings hang from Sterling Silver shepherd hooks.
Yin & Yang are concepts used to describe how apparently opposite or contrary forces are actually complementary and interdependent in the natural world. Such as light & dark, fire & water, and male & female. Everything has both yin and yang aspects. For instance shadow cannot exist without light.
Yin is the black side with the white dot in it, and yang is the white side with the black dot in it.
Yin is characterized as slow, soft, yielding, diffuse, cold, wet, and passive; and is associated with water, earth, the moon, femininity and nighttime.
Yang, by contrast, is fast, hard, solid, focused, hot, dry, and aggressive; and is associated with fire, sky, the sun, masculinity and daytime.
