Natural Citrine, Cubic Zirconia, Peridot Sterling Silver Stud Drop Earrings
These gorgeous stud drop earrings showcase stunning faceted 9mm x 8mm ovals of golden AAA citrine alongside 5mm x 3mm faceted natural peridot. Each impressive gemstone is hand-set in stylish sterling silver adorned with inset cubic zirconia.
A November birthstone, citrine is characterised by its rich hues of yellow and gold, inspiring symbolic ties with both wealth and the sun, said to inspire, energise, and bring prosperity.
An August birthstone, peridot has been popular since 1500 BCE, when its symbolic powers ranged from dissuading nightmares and promoting bravery to subduing harmful feelings of anger and guilt.
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.
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Chianti, Tuscany’s famous wine region. In this spot of arresting beauty, viridescent vineyards stretch to the horizon across rolling hills of green and gold, bathed in aureate light beneath rich cerulean skies.
28mm long (~1 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.
