  • Apatite and Cubic Zirconia Sterling Silver Earrings

    Handset in sterling silver faceted cut 4mm x 3mm oval neon blue Apatite semi-precious natural gemstones, complimented by a stunning faceted cut 9mm x 7mm oval Cubic Zirconia.

     

    This jewellery is inspired by my photography of the mist rising up the Clwyd Valley and through the trees creating this unusual atmospheric view.

     

    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. This wide range of colours lends apatite a similarly varied range of uses and associations, from elegant adornment to increased concentration.

     

    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.

     

    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 the Clwyd Valley which, with its rolling green hills and naturally verdant woodland, perfectly encapsulates the untouched pastoral beauty for which North Wales is famous.

     

    Acting as a birthstone for the month of August, peridot is a gemstone shrouded in mystery.

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.
