    The centrepiece of these elegant earrings is their striking 32mm x 6mm teardrop gemstones of natural jade, fabulous pieces of green splendour hand-set in stylish sterling silver.

Home to such staggering sights as the Chapel of the Madonna di Vitaleta and the medieval thermal baths of Bagno Vignoni, this idyllic swathe of countryside is truly unforgettable, its undulating hills of green and gold bearing incomparable natural beauty.

  • Amethyst with Blue Topaz & Apatite Sterling Silver Earrings with Gold Accents

    These lovely earrings perfectly showcase the deep colour of 8mm x 6mm purple amethyst gemstones complemented by 3mm x 3mm squares of striking blue topaz and 7mm x 5mm ovals of delightful neon-blue apatite. Each of these impressive gemstones is elegantly hand-set in stylish sterling silver accented with sumptuous yellow gold.
     

    A February birthstone, amethyst has traditionally symbolised sobriety – its name derives from the Greek ametusthos, “not intoxicated”. More recently, it has also been tied to deep emotional bonds.
     

    One of November’s birthstones, topaz is thought to be named after the Sanskrit tapas, meaning ‘fire’. Hindu literature points to its functions as a lengthener of life and provider of wisdom.
     

    Apatite, an arresting gemstone which naturally occurs in a broad array of hues, is named after the Greek apate (‘deceit’) as its varied colours have fooled many into mistaking it for other minerals.
     

    This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Anghiari, a scenic town sat atop the rolling hills of the Italian province of Arezzo, Tuscany. Its well-preserved medieval splendour is encircled on all sides by sweeping fields of green and gold, flecked with lavender and lined by leafy seams of verdant woodland.
