AAA Natural Jade Gemstone, Sterling Silver Drop Earrings
The centrepiece of these elegant earrings is their striking 32mm x 6mm teardrop gemstones of natural jade, fabulous pieces of green splendour hand-set in stylish sterling silver.
An August birthstone, jade is an enchanting green gemstone with a rich cultural heritage; whilst ancient Greeks believed it to restore eyesight, early Asian cultures held it as a mystical cure-all.
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the breathtaking Val d’Orcia, a valley of unparalleled beauty in the paradisal Italian region of Tuscany. Home to such staggering sights as the Chapel of the Madonna di Vitaleta and the medieval thermal baths of Bagno Vignoni, this idyllic swathe of countryside is truly unforgettable, its undulating hills of green and gold bearing incomparable natural beauty.
46mm long (~1.8 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.
