    Australian Opal and Blue Topaz Sterling Silver Earrings

    Wonderful colour 7mm x 7mm round natural Australian Opal Doublet semi-precious earth mined gemstones, complimented by stunning AAA quality faceted cut sparkling 5mm x 5mm cushion cut & 6mm x 4mm inverted pear drop Blue Topaz semi-precious gemstones. These gemstones are hand set in sterling silver in a bezel setting and a claw setting respectfully!

     

    These earrings are inspired by my photo of Lake Celyn which has a calm appearance with a controversial history. A village in the deep valley of the Rive Trywern, at the foot of the Arenig Mountains was flooded to create a water supply for a major city. On occasions during rare droughts the top of the local chapel is revealed. On most days I visit the serene, calm and mid blue waters are the perfect landscape.

     

    An October birthstone which serves as the national stone of Australia, Australian opal is a serene gemstone with lively symbolic and mythological associations; according to Aboriginal Australian legend, a colossal opal reigns as a god over the cosmos and all within. As with all opals, Australian opal is said to protect travellers and promote love and passion.

     

    One of November’s birthstones, topaz is thought to be named after the Sanskrit tapas, meaning ‘fire’.
