    Two delightfully crafted 3mm x 3mm round & 6mm x 4mm pear drop-shaped Ethiopian Opal cabochon semi-precious gemstones, complimented by two stunning 7mm x 5mm pear drop-shaped blue Apatite semi-precious gemstones. These natural gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting!
    This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Fairy Glen Gorge near Betws-y-Coed, where crystal-clear water dances across black and mossy rock, foaming white rapids periodically punctuating the peaceful woodland landscape.
    As with other opals, Ethiopian opal is a birthstone for October, said to brim with joyously positive emotion whilst also invoking the calmness and restraint required to balance such ardour.
    Apatite, an arresting gemstone which naturally occurs in a broad array of hues, is named after the Greek apate (‘deceit’) as its varied colours have fooled many into mistaking it for other minerals.
    35mm long (~1 1/4 inches), these dazzling gemstone earrings will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of their inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented pair which makes the perfect gift.
    Thanks for looking
