  • Tanzanite, Moonstone, Gemstone, Sterling Silver Earrings, Rose Gold Accent

    Two beautifully blue 5mm x 5mm rounds of rare natural tanzanite and one 9mm x 9mm faceted round of serene rainbow moonstone populate these fabulous earrings, upon which they are elegantly hand-set in stylish sterling silver with captivating rose gold accents.

     

    A December birthstone, tanzanite was first discovered in 1967 in Tanzania, borrowing its name from its origin country. It is often worn by Tanzanian mothers to grant their new-borns happy lives.

    One of June’s many birthstones, moonstone bears the symbolic associations of its celestial namesake, namely love and renewal, famously explored by romantic poets such as Shelley.

     

    This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Assisi, an Italian city and marvel of architectural design which sits in the Umbrian province of Perugia. Here, enveloping walls of pure white stone enclose the quintessential Italian cityscape; charming streets wind up and down steep hillside slopes, colourful flowers adorn the windowsills of picturesque terraces, and tourists gather in awe at the Tempio di Minerva, an ancient Roman site of worship dating back to the first century BCE.

     

    50mm long (~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.

    One of the birthstones for January, garnet is a wonderfully diverse gemstone which has been used for decorative purposes as far back as the Bronze Age thanks to its captivating beauty; garnet jewellery has been found amongst the relics of ancient Greece and Egypt. Historically, it has also been associated with friendship and faithfulness through links to numerous myths and legends.

    A birthstone for those born in February, amethyst is a striking semi-precious gemstone which has traditionally symbolised sobriety and restraint – its name comes from the Greek ametusthos, meaning “not intoxicated”. More recently, amethyst has been associated with pure, loving relationships and deep emotional bonds.

    Acting as a birthstone for the month of August, peridot is a gemstone shrouded in mystery. Its name has no clear origin – some sources suggest it is a derivative of the Latin paederot, which refers to a variety of opal, whereas others claim that it comes from the Arabic faridat, meaning ‘gem’. Its recorded use dates back as far as 1500 BC, where its symbolic powers seemingly ranged from warding off nightmares and promoting bravery to subduing negative feelings of anger and guilt.

     

    One of November’s birthstones, topaz is thought to be named after the Sanskrit tapas, meaning ‘fire’.

Because of this, it is often viewed as a sacred stone.
