Ethiopian Opal, Ice Aquamarine, Gemstone, Sterling Silver, Earrings, Yellow Gold Accent, Italian Wedding Earrings
These stunning earrings showcase breathtaking 5mm x 5mm faceted natural Ethiopian opal alongside 7mm x 5mm natural unheated ice blue aquamarine, both elegantly hand-set in stylish sterling silver with enchanting accents of yellow 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.
A March birthstone, aquamarine is named after the serene ocean waters with which it shares its captivating hues. Due to this maritime association, some sailors wear it to bring good fortune.
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Orvieto, a city in the Italian province of Terni, Umbria. Built high atop a wall of volcanic rock, this hidden gem rises dramatically above a verdant paradise, the gorgeously ornate white façade of its medieval cathedral drawing visitors from afar to its romantic, cobbled streets.
37mm long (~1 1/2 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.
