18k yellow gold 15mm Crownwork® ball earrings on teardrop top posts with pave blue sapphires in oxidized silver. These tops are designed for women with ‘problem piercings’. They are curved in the back to wrap around the earlobe and once the post is in, it is completely stable and gives the earring beautiful movement. The sapphires are paved around the shape of the ball making this the perfect statement earring. 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.
Historically, the most famous sources for blue sapphires (ceylon sapphires) are Burma, Kashmir and Sri Lanka, formally known as Ceylon. Sapphires are the next hardest minerals to diamonds, making them great for engagement rings! Blue Sapphire symbolizes purity, love and strength, so it is never a bad idea to be wearing this stone around. It is the birthstone month for September babies and also for Virgo, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces. It is the traditional wedding gift for 5th and 45th years.
