Inspired by the World

Opal Iolite Set, Orange Opal, Water Sapphire, Semi Precious, Handmade Gemstone Jewellery, Sterling Silver, Drop Earrings & Necklace

£150.00

 
This is a gorgeous bespoke matching jewellery set of sterling silver earrings and a necklace. Both pieces are delightfully crafted earth-mined 8mm x 6mm oval-shaped orange Ethiopian Opal semi-precious faceted gemstones, complimented by beautiful sparkling 8mm x 6mm oval-shaped blue Iolite ‘water sapphire’ semi-precious faceted gemstones. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting!

 
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the coastal resort of Roquetas de Mar. Situated in Andalucía, a province in the southeast of Spain, this gorgeous spot boasts pristine beaches which extend as far as the eye can see, lapped by the shimmering aquamarine waters of the warm Mediterranean Sea.
 
Iolite, occasionally called a ‘water sapphire’, is sometimes considered a September birthstone. Used as a guide by Norse seafarers, this ‘Vikings’ Compass’ embodies a keen sense of direction.
 
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.
 
This pendant, attached to an 18-inch chain, will come alongside these 36mm long (~1 1/4 inches) earrings, forming a dazzling gemstone set which will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of its inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented pair which makes the perfect gift.
 
Commissions welcome. Thanks for looking!
