- Unique No: 1248
These are long, dangly earrings shaped like drops each holding a small round Labradorite at the bottom.
They've been crafted in Sterling Silver and coated with Gold, in the Gold vermeil technique.
The surface is rough with fine lines so they have a brushed, matte, very classy look.
The Labradorites are medium grey spotted Labradorites that shimmer in mesmerizing colours,
especially on the bottom, depending on where the light hits it.
One is more blue at the bottom and the other more green on the side.
The effects are best seen when the light shines through the opaque surface while you move.
The reflections are easier to photograph on skin or clothes and dark surfaces, which becomes obvious
when you see the pictures, yet it has a nice daylight appearance, too, and also looks great on white.
Labradorite is a naturally occurring translucent semi-precious stone.
It comes in many colours and is usually dark green to grey or almost black.
But when light hits it, the magic happens:
It shimmers in opaque blue or green hues, so fascinating, they seem out of this world.
Depending on the light angle the stone reveals its little secrets inside.
Labradorite, with its iridescent play of colours, was first found in 1770 on St. Paul Island, on the Labrador peninsula in Canada.
This mystical stone is said to allow you to see through illusions and determine how your dreams and goals can be achieved.
They nicely compliment your neck because of their length and go about half way to your shoulders,
measuring 5 cm long from the bail, the total length with hook is 6.2 cm and the Labradorite drops are 7 mm in diameter.
