Inspired by Castles

Opal Onyx Earrings, Ethiopian Opal, Semi Precious, Handmade Gemstone Jewellery, Sterling Silver, Drop Earrings


Earth-mined natural 6mm x 4mm oval & 3m x 3mm round-shaped Ethiopian Opal semi-precious gemstones, complimented by beautiful faceted cut 6mm x 6mm round-shaped Black Onyx semi-precious gemstones. These natural gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting!
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the castle of Dinas Bran near Llangollen, Denbighshire. Situated atop a steep hill, this 13th-century ruin offers a commanding view of the local landscape, its crumbling grey walls framing the delicate green and purple hues of the nature below with the decaying remnants of bygone military might.
Onyx has long been prized for its enigmatic allure; it was much favoured in ancient Greece, where it was believed to be the clipped fingernails of Aphrodite, goddess of beauty
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.
32mm 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.
Commissions welcome. Thanks for looking
