  • Amethyst with Chrome Diopside & Cubic Zirconia Sterling Silver Earrings

    A delightful pair of gemstone earrings showcasing stunningly sparkling 6mm x 4mm faceted ovals of chrome diopside, delicately complemented by glimmering 6mm x 4mm rectangles of faceted-cut purple amethyst and several 1mm x 1mm rounds of lab-grown cubic zirconia. 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 Hiraethog, an area of untouched natural beauty on the doorstep of Snowdonia graced with the heavenly purple tones of heather-rich moorland. Its name translates to ‘The Hills of Longing’, and its tranquil landscapes are characterised by the pastoral charm synonymous with the Welsh countryside.
     

    Discovered fairly recently, chrome diopside is a rich green gemstone which, perhaps due to its verdant colouring, is believed by some to foster a connection with the natural world.
     

    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.
     

    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.
     

    30mm long (~1 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.

Because of this, it is often viewed as a sacred stone.
