Aquamarine & Emerald Sterling Silver Earrings
A truly charming pair of earrings showcasing stunningly sparkling 8mm x 6mm faceted-cut inverted pear-drops of lab-grown aquamarine alongside four enchanting 2mm x 2mm rounds of precious green emerald. 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 Cerrigydrudion, where fertile green fields – ringed by verdant hedgerows and dotted with grazing calves – tumble lazily forth before a backdrop of sloping hills.
A March birthstone, aquamarine is named after the serene ocean waters with which it shares its captivating hues. Due to this maritime association, some sailors wear it to bring good fortune.
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.
40mm long (~1 ½ 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.
