This charm is inspired by Froebel stars (Fröbelsterne), the intricate paper stars that are folded as Christmas decorations in Germany. The stars are named as a tribute to Friedrich Fröbel, a 19th century German educator who is the father of the kindergarten concept. He taught pre-school children to fold origami stars to improve their manual dexterity prior to entering school where they would be required to master the use of a fountain pen. The stars have a long tradition in Thuringia and to this day people still fold "Fröbelsterne" before Christmas and hang them on their trees.

The charm is 1.5 cm (0.6 inches) in diameter.

The charm includes a 10 mm wide connecting ring in either 14K gold plated silver or sterling silver. Charm is ready for gift giving with a gift box, polishing cloth, and care instructions. 

**Please note that all photos are computer renders. Charm is the same size as the German Christmas Star Earrings.**
