Ruby & Opalite Sterling Silver Gemstone Earrings
An unforgettable pair of gemstone earrings showcasing enchanting 5mm x 4mm ovals of natural red ruby, perfectly complemented by the beauty of 12mm x 10mm rectangular gemstones of colourful white opalite. Each of these impressive gemstones is elegantly hand-set in a stylish sterling silver claw or bezel setting.
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of a roaring river near the rural village of Beddgelert, capturing the colours of its lively waters and autumnal woodland.
A birthstone for July, ruby has long represented power and success; for 8th-century Arabic mystics, dreams of rubies foretold good fortune, whilst in ancient Burma they stood for life itself.
Iridescent pieces of prismatic wonder, opalite’s serene surfaces dance with a rainbow of colour. Some believe that it bestows a calmness reminiscent of that found in its translucent splendour. Opals are October birthstones!
38mm long (~1½ inch), 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.
Commissions welcome. Thanks for looking.
