Information about Arracadas:
The Mexican arracada is a part of the most beautiful jewelry in the world of popular tradition. The beauty of the arracada comes to life on the earlobes of Mexican women, as well as all women who wear them. My research found that ancient history of the arracada states that the sea brought the arracada to Mexico, and that it took root in Jerez, Zacatecas, making this city the traditional home of the Mexican arracada.
