    Opal Garnet Earrings, Ethiopian Opal, Tsavorite Garnet, Topaz, Cubic Zirconia, Semi Precious, Sterling Silver, Drop Earrings

    Two lovely earth-mined 3mm x 3mm round & two 4mm x 4mm round Ethiopian Opal semi-precious gemstones, complimented by gorgeous sparkling 9mm x 6mm pear drop Blue Topaz, two 2mm x 2mm round Tsavorite green Garnet & several 1mm x 1mm round-shaped Cubic Zirconias. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting & cluster setting respectively!
    This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Llangollen’s ‘Town Falls’, a series of frothing white-water rapids which roar beneath a spectacular bridge, drawing kayakers from far and wide to this spot on the River Dee.
    One of the birthstones for January, garnet – historically tied to friendship and faithfulness – has long been used for decoration, having been found amongst the relics of ancient Greece and Egypt.
    A birthstone for the month of April first developed in the USSR in the 1970s, cubic zirconia is created from base substances found in extraterrestrial rock from both asteroids and the moon.
    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.
    One of November’s birthstones, topaz is thought to be named after the Sanskrit tapas, meaning ‘fire’. Hindu literature points to its functions as a lengthener of life and provider of wisdom.

    42mm long (~1 1/2 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.
