Iolite Sterling Silver Gemstone Stud Drop Earrings with Rose Gold Accents
These delightful earrings feature stunning 4mm x 4mm rounds of natural earth-mined iolite (‘water sapphire’), elegantly hand-set in stylish sterling silver claw/basket settings delicately accented with charming rose gold.
Iolite, occasionally called a ‘water sapphire’, is sometimes considered a September birthstone. Used as a guide by Norse seafarers, this ‘Vikings’ Compass’ embodies a keen sense of direction.
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Bagno Vignoni – ‘the Bath in the Vineyards’ – a quaint Italian village set amongst the gentle hills of Tuscany’s Val d’Orcia.
This medieval settlement is centred around the hot spring baths which give it its name, crystal-clear sapphire waters walled with pale stone.
30mm 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.
