Topaz Emerald Earrings, Natural Emerald, Precious Gemstones, Sterling Silver
Magnificent natural 5mm x 3mm oval, two 4mm x 3mm oval & two 3mm x 3mm round-shaped green Emerald precious gemstones, complimented by amazing faceted cut sparkling 7mm x 7mm round-shaped Blue Topaz semi-precious gemstones. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting!
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the USA’s Everglades, a natural collage of beautifully blue waters and verdant vegetation formed by an expansive network of forests, prairies and wetlands – a ‘river of grass’ – that flows from near Kissimmee as far as Florida Bay.
A May birthstone, emerald has been called the ‘Jewel of Kings’ due to its ties to historical royalty; it was popularised by the ancient Egyptian pharaoh Cleopatra, and has remained in fashion since.
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.
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.
