  • Peridot & Kyanite Sterling Silver Earrings

    Faceted cut rare 8mm x 6mm oval blue Kyanite semi-precious gemstones, complimented by stunning 6mm x 4mm teardrop Peridot semi-precious gemstones. These gemstones are hand set in sterling silver in a claw setting.

     

    This jewellery is inspired by my photography of the beautifully blue waters surrounded by green vegetation of the Everglades, a massive network of forests, prairies and wetlands – a ‘river of grass’ – that flows from near Kissimmee all the way down to Florida Bay.

     

    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.

     

    Kyanite arises from the Greek kyanos, meaning ‘deep blue’ – a uniquely beautiful gemstone, it is – according to some – characterised by a highly positive energy which aids in healing and communicating one’s true feelings. Others also suggest that it bridges the gap between the heart and the mind.

     

    42mm 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.
