    AAA Ethiopian Opal, Ruby & Cubic Zirconia Sterling Silver Earrings

    Gorgeous AAA quality 9mm x 7mm oval Ethiopian Opal gemstones, complimented by beautifully faceted cut sparkling 6mm x 4mm inverted pear drop natural red Ruby gemstones & 3mm x 3mm round Cubic Zirconia (lab) gemstones. These gemstones are hand set in sterling silver in a claw setting!

     

    These striking earring are inspired by my photo of the Llantysyllio moors;  a stunning range of endless peaks above the pretty town of Llangollen. Stunning for hiking, guaranteed to take your breath away literally and emotionally when you see the views they are a perfect inspiration for my jewellery.

     

    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, both from asteroids and the moon. Some claim that it aids in controlling one’s ego and selfishness, as well as in gaining a strong mental and spiritual clarity.

     

    As with other opals, Ethiopian opal is a birthstone for October, associated with love and passion. They are also said to be a decidedly positive stone, brimming with positive energy and joyous emotion, whilst also invoking the calmness and restraint required to balance such ardour.

     

    A birthstone for July, ruby has stood as a symbol of power and success since antiquity; 8th-century Arabic mystics decreed that dreams of rubies foretold good fortune and great satisfaction in life. Thanks to their traditional blood-red hue, rubies have been tied to life and health throughout history – ancient Burmese warriors even believed that these gemstones rendered their wearers near-immortal.

     

    These stunning earrings are 38mm long (~1 1/2 Inch) and come in a unique gift box with the image of their inspiration in the lid of the box and beautifully presented making a special gift.

    A stunning pair of earrings showcasing sparkling 12mm x 6mm faceted marquises of lab-grown alexandrite which light shifts from blue to purple, alongside amazing faceted-cut 8mm x 4mm marquises of lab-grown pink kunzite.

    The most widely-recognised birthstone for June, alexandrite is named after Alexander II of Russia, supposedly having been first discovered by miners in the Ural Mountains on his birthday.

     

    Often a rosy pink, kunzite is named after its discoverer, George Kunz. A kunzite ring was famously received by the wife of President Kennedy as a final, posthumous symbol of his undying affection.

    Australian Opal & Peridot Sterling Silver Earrings

    Unique handmade sterling silver earrings with natural blue with colour flecks 5mm x 5mm round Australian Opal doublet semi-precious gemstones, accompanied by three beautiful apple green faceted cut 5mm x 5mm round Peridot semi-precious gemstones.

     

    This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Moel Mordydd, where the subdued shades of purple heather provide a gorgeous contrast to the vibrant green hills and deep blue sky.

     

    Acting as a birthstone for the month of August, peridot is a gemstone shrouded in mystery. Its name has no clear origin – some sources suggest it is a derivative of the Latin paederot, which refers to a variety of opal, whereas others claim that it comes from the Arabic faridat, meaning ‘gem’. Its recorded use dates back as far as 1500 BC, where its symbolic powers seemingly ranged from warding off nightmares and promoting bravery to subduing negative feelings of anger and guilt.

    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.

     

    40mm long (~1 1/2 inchs), 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.

    This stunning jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Moel Arthur, where muted pinks, subtle purples, and tones of burnt orange blend delicately into the soft green hills.

     

    A birthstone for those born in February, amethyst is a striking semi-precious gemstone which has traditionally symbolised sobriety and restraint – its name comes from the Greek ametusthos, meaning “not intoxicated”. More recently, amethyst has been associated with pure, loving relationships and deep emotional bonds.

     

    One of November’s birthstones, topaz is thought to be named after the Sanskrit tapas, meaning ‘fire’. Beliefs around topaz vary – Hindu mythology points to its functions as a lengthener of life and provider of wisdom, whilst some 13th-century mystics claimed that it could sharpen and even restore eyesight and cure mental illness. Because of this, it is often viewed as a sacred stone.

    Handset in sterling silver 5mm x 3mm marquise & 3mm x 3mm round Emerald natural gemstones with lots of character complimented by chequer board cut 12mm x 8mm pear drop Smokey Quartz gemstones.

     

    This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Moel Arthur, where muted pinks, subtle purples, and tones of burnt orange blend delicately into the soft green hills.

     

    Acting as a birthstone for the month of November, smokey quartz is a mesmerising gemstone with several symbolic associations and applications. Traditionally, German and Austrian folklore has described quartz as a source of good fortune and protection from harm, and ancient Celtic druids reportedly saw it as a stone of immense power, channelling the energies of the Earth.

    Serving as a birthstone for the month of May, emerald has often been called the ‘Jewel of Kings’ due to its close ties with historical royalty – it was popularised by the ancient Egyptian pharaoh Cleopatra, and has remained in fashion since.
