This beautiful pair of aquamarine earrings are part of my Wrought collection, inspired by the ironwork I see in my walks through cities. I hand carved the bezels and had them cast into recycled sterling silver, oxidized them slightly and then set 5mm faceted pale blue aquamarines into them. These are so sweet.
Aquamarine is the March birthstone and is suggested as a gem to give on the 16th and 19th wedding anniversaries. Aquamarine is believed to bring foresight, courage, and happiness to its wearer. It is also believed to increase intelligence and make one youthful. As a healing stone, it is said to be effective as a treatment for anxiety.
This is a unique piece since it was carved with my hands, this is not a mass manufactured bezel. Everything is handcrafted in my NYC studio.
The stud earrings have a sterling post and nut.
