Ovaries are almond-sized, female reproductive organs that typically come in pairs. Their main responsibility is to house and produce the female reproductive structures known as 'eggs', or 'ovum'. A woman is actually born with all the ovum she will ever have, and loses them throughout her life to the reproductive cycle initiated during puberty. On top of managing ovum production, the ovaries also produce hormones called estrogen and progesterone that tell the body when to begin puberty as well as menopause later in life. All of EcoSmartDesigns' handmade, pewter charm jewelry designs are proudly made in the USA.
