  • Opal Whitby-Jet Earrings, Ethiopian Opal, Cubic Zirconia, Semi Precious, Handmade Gemstone Jewellery, Sterling Silver, Drop Earrings

     
    Superb earth-mined 6mm x 4mm oval-shaped Neon Blue Ethiopian Opal Cabochon semi-precious gemstones, complimented by unusually crafted 8mm x 6mm inverted tear-drop-shaped Whitby Jet & Several 1mm x 1mm round-shaped Cubic Zirconias. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting, bezel & cluster setting respectively!
     
    This unique jewellery is inspired by Whitby, North Yorkshire. Synonymous with Captain Cook and Dracula this coastal town has quirky narrow streets, russet rooftops and bustling harbour, overlooked by the majestic Gothic ruins of Whitby Abbey. This fascinating town holds special memories for me as I went to school there but more importantly, it is the only place in the world to find Whitby Jet.
     
    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.
     
    Whitby Jet is very rare and very old; one hundred and fifty million years in fact. It is actually a fossilised monkey puzzle tree that with the movement of the earth’s crust became compressed with rock and sand to form seams in the cliffs around Whitby. Made famous by Queen Victoria semi-precious black Whitby Jet is truly inspirational.
     
    36mm 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.
