Electric Blue Ethiopian Opal Sterling Silver Stud Drop Earrings
An enchanting pair of gemstone earrings showcasing two breathtaking 7mm x 5mm inverted pear-drops of natural electric blue Ethiopian opal, perfectly complemented by wonderful 8mm x 6mm ovals of regular Ethiopian opal. 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 the mountainous Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, USA. Bordering the more famous Yellowstone, this lesser-known reserve boasts what is, in my opinion, one of the most gorgeously dramatic, snow-capped landscapes ever seen. One of our many unforgettable hikes here took us along the base of the Teton mountain range past an exquisitely beautiful trio of lakes and through some truly jaw-dropping landscapes.
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.
30mm long (~1 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.
Thanks for looking. Commissions welcome.
