Post earrings are a staple of the jewelry wardrobe. These posts are the quintessential traditional studs ... big, natural, high-grade, semi-precious stone (10mm), surrounded by finely created, oxidized and finished sterling silver ... with the perfect twist wire accent. The size of the stones gives these earrings a real presence -- they measure 1/2 inch across! Why argue with the classics?
These earrings arrive with standard titanium clutches as well as larger, hypo-allergenic backs to hold firm on your ear -- no droop!
10mm, AA, Blue Lapis set in .925 Sterling Silver bezel with sterling silver twist wire accent -- .925 sterling silver back and posts -- titanium clutches. All traditional silversmithing done in my Kensington, MD studio.
Lapiz Lazuli is a universal symbol of wisdom and truth. In ancient times Lapis Lazuli was most highly regarded because of its beautiful color and the valuable ultramarine dye derived from it. Its name comes from the Latin lapis, "stone," and the Persian lazhuward, "blue." It is rock formed by multiple minerals, mostly Lazurite, Sodalite, Calcite and Pyrite, and is a rich medium to royal blue with gold flecks (pyrites). Lower-grade Lapis is lighter blue with more white than gold flecks, and is sometimes called denim Lapis.
All jewelry designs are created using natural gemstones. There will be some natural variation in the jewelry. Our best is done to represent colors and markings in our photos.
