Opal Zirconia Set, Ethiopian Opal, Cubic Zirconia, Semi Precious Gemstones, Sterling Silver, Necklace & Earrings
This is a wonderful bespoke matching jewellery set of sterling silver earrings and a necklace. Both the necklace & earrings are amazing natural 9mm x 6mm pear drop-shaped Ethiopian Opal semi-precious cabochon gemstones, complimented by several stunning 1mm x 1mm round-shaped Cubic Zirconia (lab) gemstones. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a bezel setting & cluster setting respectfully!
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the Clwyd Valley which, with its rolling green hills and naturally verdant woodland, perfectly encapsulates the untouched pastoral beauty for which North Wales is famous.
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.
42mm 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.
