nature's treasures... (SOLD)
The Hidden Valley Green Garnet Black Opal Earrings are the breathtaking result of nature, patience and love, fused. Two unique Lightning Ridge Black Opals (one a Black Crystal Opal) are accented by a medley of green gemstones. Tsavorite Garnets, Demantoid Garnets and Emeralds, dress these magnificent Australian Opals with a colorful fringe that complements the range of valley greens that flow within. Opposite these colored gems are Rose Cut Black Diamonds by which these stunning Opals dangle. The visual transition from opaque to transparent gems is intentional; a gradual build that lands the eyes on the sparkling sweet spot of these Opal Drop Earrings.
The custom created mountings are 18k yellow gold to accent the rich threads of golden greens running through the Opal Valleys; mounting backs are open with a special message of love (blurred - to be revealed to INSIDERS) that bridges the two earrings. All stones are carefully prong set with eagle claws gripping the Opals and Diamonds. One of a Kind.
