Apatite Sterling Silver Gemstone Earrings
These eye-catching earrings showcase unusually colourful neon-blue 8mm x 6mm rectangular gemstones of semi-precious apatite semi-precious, elegantly hand-set in the stylish simplicity of sterling silver claw settings.
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the Llandudno coastline, where the white and gold of sandy beaches sinks into the sapphire waters of the Irish Sea, the emerald grassland and chalky rock of the Great Orme rising dramatically in the background.
Apatite, an arresting gemstone which naturally occurs in a broad array of hues, is named after the Greek apate (‘deceit’) as its varied colours have fooled many into mistaking it for other minerals.
38mm long (~1½ 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.
Thanks for looking. Commissions welcome.
