Inspired by Lakes

Opal Apatite Earrings, Ethiopian Opal, Cubic Zirconia, Semi Precious, Handmade Gemstone Jewellery, Sterling Silver, Drop Earrings

£79.95

 
Amazing earth-mined 7mm x 5mm oval-shaped Ethiopian Opal semi-precious gemstones, complimented by gorgeous sparkling 7mm x 5mm oval Apatite & several 1mm x 1mm round-shaped Cubic Zirconia. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting & bezel setting respectively!
 
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Lake Bala in Gwynedd, North Wales. Formed by the rivers Tryweryn and Dee and known as ‘Llyn Tegid’ to the locals, these expansive, captivating waters are both the largest natural lake in Wales and the supposed home of mythical monster ‘Teggie’, the nation’s own answer to the Loch Ness Monster. 
 
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.
 
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.
 
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.
 
34mm 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.
 
Thanks for looking
