Choice specimens of luscious Sleeping Beauty Turquoise & emerald green Chrome Diopside have been paired on these medallion earrings for an eclectic allure ~ knock out lushees for hair tossers ...not just any earrings ~ distinctively designed from the studio of Pilula Jula.
Sleeping Beauty Turquoise - The color never gets better than this if you are looking for true robins egg blue - these fantastic precision faceted nuggets are a nice hefty size - 13x10mm. And of the course the smooth smaller pebbles are a perfect color match - 5x6mm. Straight out of the mine in Globe Arizona, the surface of these stones has been lightly hardened so they wont ever lose their natural color. A necessary practice with gem Turquoise.
Siberian Chrome Diopside - This has become one of my all time favorite stones, the natural color is a deep kelly green that has a rich vibrancy - it pops against the Turquoise! These are faceted 5mm rondelles.
All Sterling Silver hand wire wrapped.
Lobe descent is 2.75 inches including the leverback - at widest point is 1 3/8 inches
An original design, I call this style the 'medallion earring' - it has been a staple in my collection for years but only debuted online in 2004, I make them with almost any gemstone you can imagine. If you have a favorite let me know, I am happy to work with you.
