Long Mismatched Earrings with Amethyst and Real Peacock Pearls
Mismatched earrings are so much more fun to make than matching ones! This pair of long pearl and gemstone earrings contains all of my favourite elements: sparkly gemstones, smooth glowing pearls and warm yellow gold. They have been designed to coordinate, but not match exactly. The earrings combine amethyst, pink amethyst, moss amethyst, black spinel and freshwater pearls. The stones are beautifully faceted to catch the light, and the colours complement each other so well. At the bottom of one earring is a tiny grey druzy crystal - an unexpected touch. They are topped off with simple gold vermeil earwires.
Earrings are approx. 3 7/8" (9.8cm) long from the top of the earwires to the bottom of the last gemstone.
Your jewellery will be packaged in a small gift box. Gift wrapping is available upon request.
What is Gold-Filled?
Gold-filled is an economical alternative to solid gold. By law, it has 1/20th by weight layer of 14 karat gold permanently bonded over a core of base metal. It is tarnish-resistant, safe for sensitive skin and unlike gold plate, it will not wear off. It is a great way to enjoy affordable gold jewellery.
