This is one of a new design to better adorn the ear in addition to the traditional earring, that I have been experimenting with. The framing wire in this piece is made from Sterling Silver which is then filled with Fine Silver Filigree wire which I mill myself to insure the correct proportions of Filigree to framing wire so that it fits just below the surface of the frame.
The stone for this piece is actually an Apatite briolette which is also faceted. The Apatite measures 5 x 3 mm in size, and has an electric blue color to it. The gemstone is wire-wrapped and complimented with a 2mm 15kt gold bead.
This cuff is a little smaller and would be perfect for a slightly smaller ear and hugs the shell of the ear perfectly.
I wanted this to dress up the ear and compliment a traditional earring and show off the brilliant color of the stone.
This is truly a distinctive piece and a really great way to have that additional ear jewelry without a secondary piercing. Consider this for a gift this holiday season.
