PLUM in Hiragana earring.
Designed with beautiful curvy letters in Japanese
うめ [u-me] means "plum blossom" in Japanese.
Top part is including "う” and two petals at the bottom is designed with "め".
Using a word, design its shape so I call this style "word picture".
Very unique design concept.
You can use this item as a conversation starter because the letters are well blended,
nobody notices at the first glance.
You can start to communicate with jewelry.
Plum starts budding in the middle of winter and bloom at the end of the winter.
That's earlier then cherry blossoms so it's a symbol of spring.
In Japan, there are more than 12000 shirines called "Tenmangu", which is dedicated to Sugawara no Michizane who was a scholar in the Heian era. (D.C 794-)
Michizane loved plum trees very much and one tree, called flying plum tree, is said to have followed him from Kyoto to Dazaifu in Kyushu when he was unfairly exiled there.
Cattle are considered the messengers of Michizane, as he was born in the Year of the Cow, that’s why statues of them are all over the place in the shrine ground.
When you visit Tenmangu, you'll see plum trees and cattle at same time.

PLUM in Hiragana earring
- Do not spray on perfume or other sprays while wearing gold/rhodium plated jewelry.
- Wait until your lotion or cream is dry or has been absorbed by your skin before you wear gold/rhodium plated bracelet or necklace.
- Substances like oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, and perfume may react with metal/plated jewelry and cause it to tarnish. This is also true for sweat, so make sure you remove your gold/rhodium plated jewelry when you exercise or doing anything requiring heavy work and when swimming.
- After every use, clean your plated jewelry with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt. Gently rubbing the surface of your gold/rhodium plated jewelry using a soft jewelry cloth, helps restore shine. Do *not* use a polishing cloth as this will strip away the plating.
- To avoid scratches, wrap your jewelry in a soft cloth after cleaning or keep it in a jewelry box separate from other types of jewelry you have. Small zip-locks work great
