After the popularity of our hammered posts using 8mm gemstones and semi-precious stones we are introducing our Hammered posts using 10mm gemstones and semi-precious stones.
Blue 10mm AA Lapis Lazuli cabochon - highlighted by subtly hammered and .925 oxidized sterling silver. They are classic and modern - with just a little texture and interest. All traditional silversmithing is done in my Kensington, MD studio.

These earrings arrive with standard titanium clutches as well as larger, hypo-allergenic backs to hold firm on your ear -- no droop!
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.
