The folklore surrounding black cats varies from culture to culture. In Britain and Japan, they are considered good luck. Scottish lore holds that a black cat’s arrival to a home signifies prosperity. Pirates of the 18th century believed that a black cat walking away from someone brought good luck. Fishermen’s wives would keep black cats at home in hopes that they would protect their husband at sea. It was not until the Middle Ages that negative black cat superstitions took hold, with sinister and occult qualities assigned to them. These beliefs were later brought over to America where black cats were seen as demons or a companion to witches. We think they are beautiful, regal creatures who deserve to be celebrated so we put one on these drop hoop earrings.

I bought these earrings on a whim for my wife. We have several black cats, so she was very pleased.
Bought as a gift for my mom who has a black cat -- I haven't even given them yet but I can tell these are well-made.
I am beyond impressed with the quality and level of detail for the charms! I absolutely adore my earrings and necklaces, and of course enjoy the compliments on how cute they are. 10/10 will buy more charms for sure!
Got these as a gift for a friend and she absolutely loves them. Perfect size and such cute details!
Love these earrings! Witchy, sexy, fun!
