Inspired by Castles

Opal Whitby-Jet Earrings, Ethiopian Opal, Black Spinel Semi Precious, Handmade Gemstone Jewellery, Sterling Silver, Drop Earrings


Superb earth-mined 5mm x 4mm pear drop-shaped Ethiopian Opal semi-precious gemstones, complimented by unusually crafted 8mm x 6mm irregular-shaped Whitby Jet gemstones & several 1mm x 1mm round-shaped Black Spinels. These natural gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting & bezel setting respectively!
This unique jewellery is inspired by Whitby, North Yorkshire. Synonymous with Captain Cook and Dracula this coastal town has quirky narrow streets, russet rooftops and bustling harbour, overlooked by the majestic Gothic ruins of Whitby Abbey. This fascinating town holds special memories for me as I went to school there but more importantly, it is the only place in the world to find Whitby Jet.
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.
36mm 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
