This listing is for a pair of sterling silver and undrilled rock crystal quartz earrings, inspired by pools of light styles of the Victorian Era.
Each pair of earring is handmade to order from sterling silver materials and set with a genuine, natural and watery clear quartz crystal ball. The spheres in these earrings measure 10mm in diameter with the bezel frame bringing the overall width to 13mm, approximately. After setting each stone, I bring the frame to a high glossy shine, and affix them to shepard's hook earwires, which I also fabricate in my studio.
The lore behind the pools of light jewelry went that each glowing crystal ball contained a tiny dancing spirit trapped inside. It was of paramount importance, therefore, that the rock crystal spheres be undrilled. Aside from this bit of Victorian whimsy, quartz is a highly dynamic material - acting as natural lens, marked by piezoelectric qualities, and carrying great prevalence in metaphysical circles.
From a stylist standpoint, these earrings are dainty, elegant and go with anything. I just as easily see them dressed up in a cocktail or bridal setting as with casual errand or work attire. And there is plenty to coordinate them with in my shop, as well as additional sizes ;)
