    Apatite, an eye-catching gemstone which naturally occurs in a broad array of colours, is named after the Greek apate – meaning ‘deceit’ – as its aforementioned colour variety has fooled many into mistaking it for other minerals.

    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.

     

    These stunning earrings are 35mm long (~1 1/4 inch) and come boxed with the image of their inspiration in the lid of the box and beautifully presented making them the perfect gift from Wales.
