Geometric Long Drop Earrings with Opal, Chrysocolla, Chrysoprase & Sugilite in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A pair of long, late-vintage drop earrings, modeled in 14k yellow gold, whose playful form concerns itself with shape and color. These earrings feature four types of colorful, bezel-set, cabochon gemstones — white opal, chrysocolla, sugilite, and chrysoprase — these vibrant stones are arranged in a vertical row of chunky geometric shapes. The 14k bezels are beautifully made, and hinged together, so that they swing back and forth with movement. These earrings are entirely hand fabricated. Marked for the jeweler Sasa Blackoff, and also for purity. Post backs with secure, screw on ear nuts.
