These double terminated quartz gold or silver thread earrings symbolize The Loa, who are the spirits of Voodoo. They are also referred to as Mysteres and the Invisibles, which are intermediaries between Bondye (Bon Dieu, or good god) the creator who is distant from the world and humanity. Unlike saints or angels, however, the Loa are not simply prayed to, they are also served. They are each distinct beings with their own personal likes and dislikes, distinct sacred rhythms, songs, dances, ritual symbols, and special modes of service. As distinct as the one-of-a-kind herkimer diamond on this sterling or gold ear thread and as unique as the woman who wears it.
