Smokey Quartz Sterling Silver Celtic Earrings
Beautifully faceted cut 8mm x 6mm oval Smokey Quartz gemstones. These gemstones are hand set in a beautiful sterling silver Celtic design in a claw setting that showcases the gemstone perfectly!
Sitting peacefully in the fields beneath Llangollen’s steep green mountains, lies the ruins of Valle Crucis Abbey. The 13th Century ruins, once inhabited by Cistercian Monks, still retain many original features including the glorious west front complete with an elaborate, richly carved doorway, which is the perfect inspiration for these earrings.
Acting as a birthstone for the month of November, smokey quartz is a mesmerising gemstone with several symbolic associations and applications. Traditionally, German and Austrian folklore has described quartz as a source of good fortune and protection from harm, and ancient Celtic druids reportedly saw it as a stone of immense power, channelling the energies of the Earth.
These earrings are 40mm long (~1 1/2 inch) and come in a special gift box with the image of their inspiration in the lid of the box and beautifully presented in an organza bag.
