Star Stud Earrings, Chrome Diopside
These Sterling Silver earrings are star set with vivid green Chrome Diopside. This rare and new natural gemstone is sometimes known as Siberian Emerald, as emerald also get its colouring from the chromium. They are designed to make a real impact - the gemstones are 5mm (0.6ct), and seem even larger with the star set attracting attention to the central stone. The setting is backed by a gallery to allow light in from the back to add extra sparkle, and fitted with post and butterfly.
I am a small jewellery designer maker, crafting all pieces by hand in studio near Cambridge (England). All my work is sterling silver, and hallmarked with my personal mark by Birmingham Assay Office. I have a special interest in setting gemstones in unique ways, and only use genuine natural gemstones sourced from my connections in London's Hatton Garden and Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter
