Smoke and mirrors....the arts of the magician....shrouded in mystery, it never fails to fascinate and intrigue..... This is the latest in my Smoke and Mirrors line, a very sexy and elegant pair of linear earrings that was crafted for the woman who loves a bit of mystery in her jewelry.
(Recently another designer suggested I look up my Smoke and Mirrors earrings on a major search engine. Good Heavens! When I started this line in 1998, the title and concept were nowhere else on the Internet. Since then it has become a remarkably popular title with new designers. I had no idea it would 'go viral'! You're welcome, ladies.)
These dangle earrings feature smoky quartz: a subtle, intriguing and mysterious quartz the color of smoke, that works perfectly with the black onyx and black faceted spinel I've paired it with. The black spinel is from Sri Lanka, in faceted 8mm. briolettes. The black versions of spinel have the most marvelous glitter, even more than black onyx or polished jet. They are one of my favorite gems for evening wear. (These earrings look smashing with black clothing).
The focal smoky quartz briolettes at the bottom are 11mm., bevelled at the front and carved convex at the back for added sparkle and depth of color. The 4mm. faceted rondelles are black onyx, smoky quartz and jet crystal. The 7mm. slender faceted briolettes are black onyx. The gems are all worked on sterling silver-filled wire wire to sterling silver rolo chain and accented with 2mm. silver-filled beads. Smoky quartz is a naturally occurring semi-precious gemstone, not lab created.
They hang from sterling silver leverback wires. They measure 2 & 1/8" total and swing very seductively as you move your head. They are light on the ear.
If you are looking for that very special and elegant pair of earrings--or just want to look a bit mysterious and intriguing--these sparkling earrings are for you, my Lady.
All metals are sterling silver and sterling silver-filled. The smoky quartz, black spinel and black onyx are genuine.
