These luxury sugilite earrings are a one off design handmade from a large pair of genuine, 100% natural, sugilite drops, weighing 12.5 carats. The sugilite is cut into polished marquise briolettes and measure a generous 8mm x 21.5mm x 4.5mm. The drops are hand wrapped onto a pair of 22k gold vermeil connectors with pave set white topaz gems. Presented on artisan made, satin finished, 24k gold heavy-plated sterling silver ear wires.
Sugilite is also known as royal lavulite, royal azel or wesselite. The most important source for sugilite is in the Kalahari desert in South Africa, where it has to be mined several thousand feet below the earth's surface.
