Gorgeous earth-mined 6mm x 4mm inverted pear drop-shaped Ethiopian Opal semi-precious gemstone, complemented by delightfully crafted 6mm x 4mm inverted pear drop-shaped pink Tourmaline & several 1mm x 1mm round-shaped Cubic Zirconias. These natural gemstones are handset ins sterling silver in a prong setting & a cluster setting respectively!
 
This handmade jewellery is inspired by the pink tones at play in my photograph of Offa’s Dyke, an astonishing earthwork that runs along the Welsh border. It is named after Offa, an 8th-century Anglo-Saxon king who ordered its construction in an attempt to fortify his kingdom of Mercia against the neighbouring forces of Wales.
 
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.
 
An October birthstone, tourmaline was reported by one 18th-century Dutch scientist to induce sleep, whilst ancient traditions from Africa and India believe it to strengthen moral judgement.
 
Attached to an 18-inch chain, this dazzling gemstone pendant will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of its inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented piece which makes the perfect gift.
 
Commissions welcome. Thanks for looking
