Inspired by Moorlands

Ethiopian Opal and Garnet Sterling Silver Earrings


Two natural 7mm x 5mm oval Ethiopian Opal gemstones, complimented by faceted cut 5mm x 5mm round AAA quality Garnet  semi-preciousgemstones. These gemstones are hand set in sterling silver in a claw setting which allows the light through the gemstones.


This stunning jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Moel Famau, where blooms of beautifully pink and purple heather act as a rich and vibrant highlight to the subdued moorland hues en-route to an ancient local landmark.


As with other opals, Ethiopian opal is a birthstone for October, associated with love and passion. They are also said to be a decidedly positive stone, brimming with positive energy and joyous emotion, whilst also invoking the calmness and restraint required to balance such ardour.

One of the birthstones for January, garnet is a wonderfully diverse gemstone which has been used for decorative purposes as far back as the Bronze Age thanks to its captivating beauty; garnet jewellery has been found amongst the relics of ancient Greece and Egypt. Historically, it has also been associated with friendship and faithfulness through links to numerous myths and legends.


42mm long (~1 1/2 inchs), 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.
