These Sterling Silver and black Topaz statement earrings are hand made, inspired by stormy days on the Cornish coast and finding beauty in amongst the 'grey.'
The unique earrings feature beautiful Black, Rose cut, freeform Topaz, along with the recognisable Stormy Seas design.
The Topaz stones are set in a bezel style with an open back. Each gemstone measures aprox 1.2cm tall by 1cm at its widest point. They are attached to the dome, but move freely, catching the light as they do so.
Each dome measures aprox 1.5cm (15mm) at its widest point. The inside of the domes have been treated with an oxidising treatment to blacken it, which has been lightly polished. The polishing process removes some of the colour and also gives it a sheen that changes the intensity of colour - depending on which direction you look at it, it looks various shades of grey and black, just like a stormy sky! Half of each concave dome is then textured again, small sections of the blackened, polished surface are hand engraved to reveal the silver - it's this that is representative of the ferocious sea. The edge of the domes are flat, front facing and have been polished for contrast against the blackened insides.
The back of the these earrings and the unique angular earring wire is finished with a brushed texture. The overall earring drop is 4.1cm.
This unique design would make a great gift for anyone drawn to the coast and the sea, or who perhaps needs a little reminder that beauty can be found on the greyest of days... They complement so many looks and transition perfectly from day to night! They have come with a full UK hallmark, including my own makers mark.
These earrings form part of a wider collection, with matching items available.
