Vintage Sterling Silver Blue Larimar Southwestern Studs Posts Earrings
These are Larimar dangle drop sterling silver earrings.
They are a post pierced design, which is very easy to wear.
They will not drag your earlobes down like wires can do.
This is a very flattering look! The blue is a lovely Caribbean blue.
The more contrasts within in the stone ... the more rare it is.... and that makes it more valuable.
****As an added note of caution, I have read that this blue color is slightly photosensitive.
It can possibly fade with time if exposed to too much light and heat.
While I have read this.... I have had a Larimar ring since the early 1980's,
and wear it alot, and it is still a gorgeous blue. (But I live in Wisconsin and not a sunny Southern state.)
CONDITION: Very good condition. Ready to wear.Lovely stones
and light original patina. Includes the original sterling silver clutches.
SIZE: 1-1/8" long and 3/16" wide.
HISTORY: Larimar was originally discovered in the early 1900's, and not given much attention at that time.
It was re-discovered in the early 1970's, and is steadily gaining in popularity.
It is a rare blue variety of pectolite found only in the Dominican Republic, in the Caribbean.
Its coloration varies from white, light-blue, green-blue to deep blue.
