Tanzanite Garnet Earrings, Natural Tanzanite, Rhodolite Garnet, Sterling Silver, Stud Drop Earrings
Six lovely natural 5mm x 5mm round-shaped rare blue Tanzanite semi-precious gemstones, complemented by wonderfully crafted 7mm x 5mm pear drop Pink Rhodolite Garnet semiprecious gemstone. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting!
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the flowers of the twin-island havens of St Kitts and Nevis, sites of tropical perfection where fiery red flowers provide a flamboyant contrast to the serene blues of the Caribbean Sea which laps against the islands’ immaculate beaches.
One of the birthstones for January, garnet – historically tied to friendship and faithfulness – has long been used for decoration, having been found amongst the relics of ancient Greece and Egypt.
A December birthstone, tanzanite was first discovered in 1967 in Tanzania, borrowing its name from its origin country. It is often worn by Tanzanian mothers to grant their newborns happy lives.
40mm long (~1 1/4 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
