Purple Amethyst & Cubic Zirconia Sterling Silver Earrings
A sensational pair of gemstone earrings featuring stunningly sparkling 7mm x 5mm faceted ovals of purple amethyst alongside several glimmering 1mm x 1mm rounds of faceted-cut cubic zirconia. Each of these impressive gemstones is elegantly hand-set in a stylish sterling silver claw setting adorned with a unique design.
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Maesyrchen – here, the dazzlingly vivid pink and purple heather brings the moorland to life, infusing it with breathtaking colour.
A February birthstone, amethyst has traditionally symbolised sobriety – its name derives from the Greek ametusthos, “not intoxicated”. More recently, it has also been tied to deep emotional bonds.
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.
36mm long (~1¼ 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.
