Sterling Silver Snowflake Charm. Falling snow is a magical event that binds heaven and earth. Tiny ice crystals fall from the sky as they form around a nucleus of earth-born dust. The geometric perfection of snowflakes has won it many admirers. As if by some cosmic decree, every snowflake has six sides. Because the number six is associated with affection, the snowflake was used by Pagans as a symbol of love. Pair snowflake charms with winter holiday charms.
