Electric Blue Natural Ethiopian Opal, Gemstone, Sterling Silver, Earrings
A stunning pair of stud drop earrings featuring distinctive electric blue opal, natural faceted-cut 4mm x 6mm ovals of AAA Ethiopian opal heat-treated into an unusual colour. These impressive gemstones are elegantly hand-set in stylish sterling silver.
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 fair Verona, the romantic setting of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy. A World Heritage Site, this gorgeous city straddles the Adige River in the Italian region of Veneto, its cobbled streets, richly-coloured Renaissance terraces, and astonishingly well-preserved 1st-century Roman amphitheatre – still in use today – combining to offer a splendid variety of stunning attractions.
30mm long (~1 inche), 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.
