This is a gorgeous pair of 18k yellow gold large Crownwork® finial earrings on teardrop top posts with faceted black onyx drops. The design inspiration for the finials are the Moores in Spain. It’s my translation of the columns in the Alluhumbra Palace. The design is a very old world form that fits jewelry perfectly and I use it in many configurations throughout the collection. All of the gold we use is certified eco-responsible, recycled metal. Unlike mining, where approximately 20 tons of waste is generated to produce just one ounce of gold, refining precious metals has virtually no waste and is much better for the earth.
Onyx is a variety of Chalcedony, in its solid black form it is one of the more traditional gemstones. This black gem is helpful in grounding and balancing yourself, and it also works well as a protective stone. Many believe that the onyx is there to drive motivation and to continuously push you forward in your life. In addition to this, the onyx stone carries the power to give you the jolt of energy that you need to start pursuing your dreams. And to then protect you on that journey as you work towards your goals. By carrying or wearing the onyx daily, you will be able to shield your aura and prevent negative energies from attaching themselves to you.
