Carnelian & Freshwater Pearl Drop Earrings set in 925 Sterling Silver

This is a really gorgeous pair of Carnelian & Freshwater Pearl drop earrings in a Sterling Silver setting. These drop earrings are a lovely, elegant and regal design with superb silver work and a 925 hallmark on the solid silver back.

Carnelian is a translucent, orange, semi-precious stone. The soothing nature of this autumnal pastel shade is quite superb, and also very calming. It is easy to overlook this stone with its gorgeous colour being one of the more unusual semi-precious stones. It is classified as a silica mineral, and it is also a form of chalcedony. The ‘rusty’ orange colouring is due to the presence of iron oxide during the formation of the mineral. As with other forms of chalcedony its use in carvings and jewellery goes back thousands of years. The Romans discovered that hot wax didn’t adhere to it, this made it invaluable for imprinting seal rings. Freshwater Pearls are ‘cultured pearls’ produced by Freshwater Mussels, ‘farmed’ in a sustainable way.

Metaphysically, a stone that can attract prosperity and good luck. It is a stabilising stone, and is also excellent for restoring vitality and motivation. Carnelian is a stone that can stimulate creativity, and sharpen concentration and also invigorate the mind and body. This is a stone that can calm anger, dispel mental lethargy, and go on to replace them with love and also deep fulfilment. Freshwater Pearls meanwhile have long associations with innocence and faith they can help to help nurture love.
