Emerald Opal Earrings, Natural Emerald, Orange Ethiopian Opal, Cubic Zirconia, Precious Gemstones, Sterling Silver


Magnificent 7mm x 5mm oval orange Ethiopian Opal semi-precious gemstones, complimented by wonderfully crafted natural 7mm x 5mm pear drop-shaped Emerald precious gemstones with lots of character & faceted cut sparkling 3mm x 3mm round Cubic Zirconia (lab) gemstones. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting & bezel setting respectfully!
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the Colorado River, an incredible 1,450-mile-long body of water which flows through seven US states and into Mexico, where it is dammed at the border. Meandering through such gorgeous landscapes as Wyoming’s emerald forests, Nevada’s golden deserts, and the bronze canyonlands of Utah, this serpentine waterway of sapphire offers a truly unmissable spectacle.
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.
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.
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.
32mm 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.
