Inspired by Moorlands

Amethyst Iolite Earrings, Green Flourite, Semi Precious Gemstones, Sterling Silver


Gorgeous 6mm x 4mm oval-shaped blue Iolite ‘Water Sapphire’ gemstones, complimented by stunning faceted cut sparkling 6mm x 4mm baguette-shaped purple Amethyst & 7mm x 5mm oval-shaped green Flourite gemstones. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting!
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Hiraethog, an area of untouched natural beauty on the doorstep of Snowdonia graced with the heavenly purple tones of heather-rich moorland. Its name translates to ‘The Hills of Longing’, and its tranquil landscapes are characterised by the pastoral charm synonymous with the Welsh countryside.
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.
Flourite is a crystallised mineral that boast a range of beautiful colours including purple, green and white. This calcium fluoride is said to simulate the regeneration of cells and boost the immune system.
Iolite, occasionally called a ‘water sapphire’, is sometimes considered a September birthstone. Used as a guide by Norse seafarers, this ‘Vikings’ Compass’ embodies a keen sense of direction.
40mm long (~1 1/2 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!
