These earrings feature hanging tassels of Natural Moonstones that have been faceted and turned into tiny beads. I have strung them onto silver wire that allows them to move creating a gleam and flash in the light as they swing. This one-of-a-kind pair are hanging below a hand-sawn double shaped plate in silver. Each earring has hand-cut with a tiny sawblade and therefore the earrings are slightly unique and never perfectly matched.
These beauties are rather light and elegant, and I hope will become part of your favourite go-to sets of earrings.
The finish on the silver metal has been oxidised (blackened) and then lightly polished but left with a satin shine.
The ear hooks are also hand-fabricated from sterling silver.
From the top of the ear-wire to the base of the discs these earrings measure 72mm and the width approximately 12mm. The gauge (thickness) of the silver is 2mm – making these lightweight, but durable.
Made with lots of love, heart and soul.
These are ‘ready to go’ so please enjoy prompt shipping!
RGSilver products always come packaged, which is also perfect for gift giving.
The earrings also have my Makers Mark and a Sterling Silver 925 Hallmark on the reverse of one of the pairs.
Moonstone is a mineral of the orthoclase feldspar group and is composed of potassium aluminium silicate. It is distinguished from other similar stones by the presence of adularescence. Adularescence is the optical phenomenon that causes the extraordinary glow on the surface of moonstone. The light moves across the stone much like moonlight would glide across a large body of calm water. Ancient cultures coveted moonstone and created origins for the stone as spectacular as the stone itself. Many believed the stone was created from moonbeams. Others strongly associated the stone’s powers with the moon.
A stone for “new beginnings”, Moonstone is a stone of inner growth and strength. It soothes emotional instability and stress, and stabilises the emotions, providing calmness. Moonstone enhances intuition, promotes inspiration, success and good fortune in love and business matters.
