Natural Orange and Yellow Sapphire, Cubic Zirconia, Gemstone, Sterling Silver, Stud Drop Earrings, White Gold Accent
These stunning lever-backed stud drop earrings showcase beautiful 4mm x 3mm rectangles of natural, earth-mined yellow and orange sapphire alongside enchantingly sparkling cubic zirconia. Each gemstone is delicately hand-set in stylish sterling silver claw/basket settings accented with elegant white gold.
One of the birthstones for September, sapphire’s symbolism is as diverse as its hues, having been associated with youth and old age, power and kindness, and wealth alongside freedom from envy.
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 the ornate gold ceilings of the Vatican, an impressive slice of its sumptuous, palatial majesty.
34mm 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.
