These opal and peridot earrings are a one off design handmade from 3.10 carats of top gem quality peridot and genuine Ethiopian Wello opal. Each peridot gem is cut into a 6mm faceted sphere and is hand pinned in solid 18k gold vermeil with 18k gold vermeil daisy spacer beads and two smooth rondelles of solid Wello opal. The opals have lots of predominantly green fire on a yellowish base and have been hand picked as a specific compliment to the peridot (as well for being a good match to each other). Presented on handmade 24k gold heavy plated sterling silver ear wires.
The ear wires used in this piece have a satin finish with a guaranteed 40-mil thick layer of genuine 24k gold over sterling silver - a far more substantial layer than traditional plating techniques.
