These contemporary gemstone tear drop dangly earrings are handmade in Sterling Silver in Cornwall and inspired by the sea that surrounds it.
A beautiful, pale aqua colour Chalcedony is the focal point each earring. Chosen for it's delicate colour that reminded me of the sea on that beautiful hazy day. Set in a bezel style setting, the stone is 8mm wide and reflects the light beautifully.
An elongated tear drop shape hangs beneath the Chalcedony. Half of the tear drop shape has a hammered texture, with a high shine, depicting the reflection on the sea as the sun peers through the hazy clouds. The remaining half has a light brushed finish that merges with the high shine hammered texture, just as the horizon merges the sea to the hazy sky. The back of each earrings, along with the ear wire is finished with a brushed texture.
The earrings have a drop of aprox 5.9cm (59 mm). Each teardrop shape measures aprix 3.1cm (31mm).
These are a beautiful, timeless pair of earrings that are the perfect gift for anyone who has a special place in their heart for spending time by the sea or ocean. A great gift for anyone with fond memories of Cornwall, something for them to hold close and remember those happy times! It's a timeless design that will complement so many outfits from daytime casual to LBD!
The gemstone Chalcedony has some healing properties and is said to improve one's state of mind and bring emotional stability.
