This is a beautiful pair of 18k yellow gold 10mm pink opal Crownwork earrings on hooks with chalcedony drops. Made of 18k spring gold so its high tensile, easy to get on and off and helps the earring hang directly underneath the earlobe. 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.
These pink opal cabochons are bezel set in our signature crownwork style and compliment the chalcedony drops like a dream. The name Opal comes from the Sanksrit word upala, meaning ‘precious stone’ and later the Greek derivative Opallios meaning ‘to see a change of color’. It symbolizes love, loyalty, peace and consciousness. Chalcedony is quartz with a different atomic structure. It has a waxy lustre, and may be semitransparent or translucent. The properties of chalcedony include emotional balance, vitality, stamina and energy so they have the feel good factor when you wear them. It is the zodiac stones for Cancer, Virgo, Sagittarius and Aquarius.
