AAA Quality Green Peridot with Blue Topaz Sterling Silver Gemstone Earrings
A remarkable pair of gemstone earrings showcasing stunningly sparkling AAA-quality 9mm x 7mm faceted pear-drops of semi-precious green peridot, delicately complemented by eye-catching 6mm x 4mm pear-drops & 5mm x 5mm cushion-cut faceted blue topaz. Each of these impressive gemstones is elegantly hand-set in a stylish sterling silver claw setting.
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the spectacular Llynnau Mymbyr, set amongst the stunning landscape of Snowdonia’s highest peaks. Over a kilometre long, these twin lakes are also known as the ‘Capel Curig Lakes’, and offer a chilling blue depth of 30 metres.
An August birthstone, peridot has been popular since 1500 BCE, when its symbolic powers ranged from dissuading nightmares and promoting bravery to subduing harmful feelings of anger and guilt.
One of November’s birthstones, topaz is thought to be named after the Sanskrit tapas, meaning ‘fire’. Hindu literature points to its functions as a lengthener of life and provider of wisdom.
38mm long (~1 ½ 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.
