Inspired by Castles

Quartz Garnet Earrings, AAA Smokey Quartz, Rhodolite Pink Garnet, Handmade Gemstone Jewellery, Sterling Silver, Stud Drop Earrings

£59.95

 
Stunning AAA quality 7mm x 7mm princess-shaped Smokey Quartz semi-precious faceted gemstone, complement by two beautiful faceted cut sparkling 2mm x 2mm round-shaped Rhodolite Pink Garnet semi-precious gemstones. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting!
 
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Ruthin Castle, which acts today as a visual juxtaposition of two eras; at one end of the lush local parkland, enshrouded in ivy, slumps the ruined wall of a 13th-century fortress, whilst at the other stands a 19th-20th century manor house-turned-hotel. Both hold a unique appeal, but together they offer an indescribable allure, the red walls of the hotel contrasting gorgeously with the grey and green of the medieval remnants.
 
One of the birthstones for January, garnet – historically tied to friendship and faithfulness – has long been used for decoration, having been found amongst the relics of ancient Greece and Egypt.
 
A birthstone for November, smokey quartz features in German and Austrian folklore as a source of good fortune, whilst ancient Celtic druids once believed it to channel the energies of the Earth.
 
12mm long (~1/4 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
