Ethiopian Opal, Gemstone, Sterling Silver, Earrings, Rose Gold Accent
A fabulously elegant pair of stud drop earrings featuring delicately colour-flecked 4mm x 5mm faceted ovals of earth-mined Ethiopian opal, hand-set in a stylish sterling silver design with charming accents of rose gold.
As with other opals, Ethiopian opal is a birthstone for October, said to brim with joyously positive emotion whilst also invoking the calmness and restraint required to balance such ardour.
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Italy’s most historic city, Rome. Capital of Italy and ancient seat of the mighty Roman Empire, this age-old metropolis sees sprawling streets spill colourfully forth beneath the imposing alabaster silhouettes of marble palaces and archways, a rich collage of hues characterising its busy pavements and plazas. The city’s Renaissance stylings are juxtaposed stunningly alongside the ancient wonders of the Roman Colosseum and Pantheon.
35mm long (~1 1/4 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.
