Emerald Earrings - Argentium Silver - 2380
Make a statement with this contemporary design handcrafted by David Worcester.
Cast in Argentium 960 premium quality, 100% recycled silver, these earrings measure 27mm x 13.5mm, or 1 1/16 x 1/2 inches, and hold 3.5mm Chatham Emeralds at the tip.
PLEASE LOOK AT MEASUREMENTS CAREFULLY. ACTUAL SIZE CANNOT BE DETERMINED FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHS, WHICH ARE PHOTOGRAPHED TO SHOW DETAIL.
A ribbon of Argentium Silver swirls down off the ear to capture a bright colorless stone at its tip. This tendril of silver frames the face, with a design first conceived as a pendant. Unlike the pendant, these earrings hold no center stone, which I felt was too formal. I wanted these to be enjoyed for wear at any time of day. The original patterns were carved in wax, and like all asymmetrical earrings, presented the challenge of each mirroring the other.
CHATHAM EMERALD: Emeralds have long been treasured for their brilliant green beauty. Chatham Created Emeralds provide an economical and environmentally responsible alternative to mined gems. Lab grown under the same conditions which create an emerald in nature, Chatham emeralds are identical physically, chemically, spectrally and optically to mined emeralds. Emerald is the gemstone used to celebrate the 20th, 35th or 55th wedding anniversary and May’s birthstone.
A contemporary, yet timeless design by award winning designer, David Worcester.
ARGENTIUM SILVER is a special alloy, verified as the most tarnish resistant made, but an occasional simple wipe with a soft cloth, and tucking the piece into the provided, protective pouch will further enhance its natural aversion to tarnish. Eco-friendly recycled silver.
