Tanzanite & White Topaz Sterling Silver Earrings
A charming pair of gemstone earrings showcasing delightful 4mm x 4mm rounds of natural blue tanzanite alongside stunningly sparkling 8mm x 8mm faceted gemstones of cushion-cut white topaz. Each of these impressive gemstones is elegantly hand-set in a stylish sterling silver claw setting.
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Snowdonia, North Wales’s untamed, mountainous heartland, where blooms of heather, the dark silhouettes of stone monoliths, the cool waters of vast, still pools, and the ever-changing colours of a capricious sky fill the landscape with soothing tones of blue and purple.
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.
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.
40mm long (~1½ 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. Commissions welcome.
