During it's time of operation Ellis Island was the final destination for over 12 million immigrants before they entered America. Since it ceased being an immigrant inspection station in 1954, Ellis Island has occupied a place in the American cultural consciousness as nearly synonymous with immigration or as a crucial part of the immigrant experience.
These beautiful earrings symbolize the journey those millions of people undertook to start a new life in America. Made to resemble the windows in the Great Hall of the immigration station— where immigrants received their first glimpse of the New York skyline— these earrings wonderfully honor the immigrant experience.
