Ruby & Ethiopian Opal with Cubic Zirconia Sterling Silver Earrings

£71.95

An enchanting pair of gemstone earrings showcasing serene 5mm x 4mm faceted-cut inverted pear-drops of natural red ruby, delicately complemented by remarkable 8mm x 4mm marquises of semi-precious Ethiopian opal set alongside several stunningly sparkling 1mm x 1mm faceted rounds of lab-grown cubic zirconia. 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 Moel Famau, the highest peak of the series of steep-sloped hills which form the majestic Clwydian Range. A picturesque trail to its top rewards hikers with breathtaking vistas as the warm reds of its moorland yield to the green of distant fields and the blue of the boundless sky.
 

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.
 

A birthstone for July, ruby has long represented power and success; for 8th-century Arabic mystics, dreams of rubies foretold good fortune, whilst in ancient Burma they stood for life itself.
 

Like 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.
 

40mm long (~1½ 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.
 

Commissions welcome. Thanks for looking.
