Inspired by Lakes

Tanzanite Topaz Earrings, Cubic Zirconia, Semi Precious Gemstone Jewellery, Sterling Silver, Stud Drop Earrings


Two lovely faceted cut sparkling 4mm x 4mm round-shaped blue Tanzanite semi-precious rare gemstones, complimented by stunning 7mm x 5mm pear drop-shaped Blue Topaz & several 1mm x 1mm round-shaped Cubic Zirconia (lab) gemstones. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting & cluster setting respectfully!
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Llyn Tryweryn, the source of the Tryweryn river which was infamously channelled into the Llyn Celyn reservoir in 1965, resulting in the small Welsh village of Capel Celyn being lost to the lake. Perhaps due to the sombre story behind these serene waters, the lake’s cool blues seem to convey a very solemn sort of beauty.
A birthstone for the month of April first developed in the USSR in the 1970s, cubic zirconia is created from base substances found in extraterrestrial rock from both asteroids and the moon.
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.
A December birthstone, tanzanite was first discovered in 1967 in Tanzania, borrowing its name from its origin country. It is often worn by Tanzanian mothers to grant their new-borns happy lives.
28mm long (~1 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.
