These dangle earrings were handmade with faceted Lapis and Quartz doublet stones and solid sterling silver. These are doublet stones which means that two stones have been bonded together. The bottom of the stone is a natural bright blue lapis stone. On top of the lapis is quartz crystal which is faceted and gives the stone height and a beautiful luminescent quality and sparkle. Doublets are not naturally occurring, the two stones have been glued together to create this. We normally use 100% natural stones but when we saw these on our recent stone buying trip, we had to have them!! The color is just amazing and the glow added by the quartz is so unique. Custom bezel settings were created for the stones and they are soldered onto hand hammered sterling silver squares. These are lightweight and comfortable to wear!
* Total length including the ear wire is 1", the earrings measure .75" across at the widest point.
