These double terminated quartz earrings symbolize The Loa; 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. The one-of-a-kind herkimer diamond on this sterling or gold ear thread is as unique as the woman who wears it.
