Carved "trumpet" flowers of aqua chalcedony take center stage in the "Triton's Trumpet" earrings. In these completely unique gemstone earrings, you will also find gorgeous tanzanite, apatite, peridot, and blue topaz rondelles.
Guaranteed to make you feel like a mermaid or sea goddess, the "Triton's Trumpet" earrings are exotic. These are a one of a kind pair of earrings.
Approximate measurements: 1 1/2"
All metal used is 24kt gold *vermeil, which is a thick layer of 24kt gold, over a base of sterling silver. Your earrings will ship USPS mail with tracking in the US, and will be packaged in a lovely gift box tied with ribbon. *What is vermeil? Vermeil must meet the FTC standard of 100 millionths of an inch (2 ½ microns) of fine gold layered over sterling silver. In order for a piece to be labeled legally as "vermeil", the item must not be less than 10 karat gold and have a substantial thickness, with a minimum thickness of 2 ½ microns. A Vermeil piece of jewelry is made entirely of precious metals, which gives the piece an intrinsic value.
*How to care for vermeil jewelry: While vermeil jewelry may tarnish (the base is sterling silver, a precious metal that tarnishes!), it is easily cleaned and will remain beautiful, if cared for properly. For starters, I recommend storing your artisan jewelry in the box provided to you when you purchased your jewelry, or you can store it in an airtight bag, such as a Ziploc.
