Engraved silver and gold flower earrings with Russian chrome diopside
This special pair of earrings was fashioned from 20 gauge sterling silver sheet. I hand cut a drawn rosette using steel gravers and included a central disc of solid 14 k gold. The silver docs is about 20 mm in diameter. The central gold disc is 7 mm in diameter.
I bead set a gorgeous pair of natural Russian chrome diopside faceted gems in these. Each gem is 3.05 mm in diameter. The deep green of these stones rivals the color of emerald and tsavorite garnets. Set with an open back, the gems show a sparkle in light.
Paired with a set of my hand made ear wires, these special earrings would make a fantastic heirloom gift to be treasured.
