Sterling Silver Moon and Star Earrings cast in Sterling Silver from my handmade originals and set with 5mm synthetic Blue Opal cabochons. After setting the cabochons on these celestial beauties, I create this unique patina on the sterling silver surface of these Starry Night inspired earrings with heat and my custom patina formula to highlight the swirly spirals and the gemstones. An acrylic jewelry sealant insures the earthy patina will remain as you see it with an easy care finish. No polishing required! I dangle these Moon & Star Earrings from sterling silver French style ear wires.
The Moon represents the female principles of instincts, moods, tides, mystery, and receptivity. A crescent moon is a symbol of transition and transformation as the moon moves through its cycles. The Star is a symbol of achievement and authority, but also represents dreams and hopes. The spirals and glowing opals on these Moon & Star earrings remind me of Vincent Van Gogh's painting Starry Night. It is one of my favorites!
Opal is the October birthstone. It is said to soothe erratic emotions and enhance personal courage. It enhances your ability to communicate what is in your heart and helps in overcoming bad habits. Opal is the stone of hope, the stone of great achievement and even the "stone of the Gods". It is said to be the stone of love, but only to faithful lovers.
Lab created stones are not czs or fake gemstones. They are made in a laboratory and have the same physical and chemical make-up as real gemstones. Why do this? Two reasons, one mining has taken a severe toll on the earth and the people who are forced to do this work, and two this makes a much better quality stone available and affordable.
These celestial earrings are the perfect gift for that starry eyed friend!
