Natural British Carnelian Drop Earrings. These contemporary style large cabochon earrings are handcrafted in pale carnelian quartz, a semi-precious gemstone. I have collected this natural carnelian by hand on the lovely Northumbrian coast, northern England. Using lapidary techniques, I have handcrafted the gemstone into round cabochons and set these in sterling silver drop earrings.
Each cabochon has been cut from the same stone so differ slightly. The earrings are semi-transparent and look paler when held up the light.
- Earrings drop length: 1 inch (23 mm).
- Cabochon size: approximately 3/8 inches (10 mm) diameter.
- The ear wires are also sterling silver.
Please note: this is natural, untreated stone, which may contain small fissures and inclusions.
