  • Cubic Zirconia, Midnight Blue Goldstone, Gemstones, Sterling Silver, Earrings

    These captivating earrings feature stunningly unique 8mm x 8mm rounds of midnight-blue goldstone, complemented by several sparkling 1mm x 1mm faceted rounds of lab-grown cubic zirconia. Each gemstone is elegantly hand-set in sterling silver, sitting in bezel and claw settings, respectively.

     

    This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Valle Crucis Abbey, a ruined 13th-century site of worship situated near Llangollen in Denbighshire. Boasting an elaborate doorway, intricately-carved windows, and several acres of surrounding grassland which now operate as a stunning caravan park, Valle Crucis Abbey offers a unique and engaging slice of Welsh history and architecture.

     

    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.

     

    A man-made wonder, goldstone glimmers with flecks of cobalt or manganese which shine, star-like, upon its smooth, colour-rich surface.

     

    20mm long (~¾ inch), 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. Commissions welcome.
