Handcrafted in New York City from environmentally responsible renewed precious metal, these beautiful cherry blossom charms, each inlaid with a diamond chip, are very special sparkling pieces. Like delicate cherry blossoms floating on the air, the pretty blooms hangs on sterling silver wires. Hand-carved, they were designed by artist Page Sargisson, who is inspired by the textures, shapes, and history of objects in the environment. In an effort to offset the environmentally damaging process of mining, the charms are made from recycled and refined silver. Whenever possible, Sargisson’s studio uses recycled metal and is in compliance with resolutions set forth by the U.N. and the Kimberly Process diamond certification scheme.
Spring in Washington celebrates the cherry trees and their beautiful pink and white flowers that bloom in late March. Every year, Cherry Blossom Festival performers put on a colorful show right in front of the National Archives steps. The majority of the trees are located near the Tidal Basin, where they are most popularly viewed. The Japanese cherry trees were a gift from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo City to the city of Washington on March 27, 1912. The National Archives holds many records related to the United States' relationship with Japan.
