Sapphire & Blue Topaz Sterling Silver Earrings
An enchanting pair of gemstone earrings featuring faceted-cut 6mm x 4mm pear-drops of semi-precious blue topaz alongside three stunning 5mm x 3mm ovals of yellow, green and orange sapphire. 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 Diablo Valley, an impressive swathe of untouched woodland and rolling hills where viridescent forests and sun-kissed fields stretch out against a backdrop of distant, dramatic mountains.
One of November’s birthstones, topaz is thought to be named after the Sanskrit tapas, meaning ‘fire’. Hindu literature points to its functions as a lengthener of life and provider of wisdom.
One of the birthstones for September, sapphire’s symbolism is as diverse as its hues, having been associated with youth and old age, power and kindness, and wealth alongside freedom from envy.
42mm long (~1½ 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.
