18k Yellow Gold Stud Earrings with Variscite and Black Spinel

Gold & Stone Earrings

Created by Sarah Hood
These truly special stud earrings feature blue green spiderweb variscite set into glowing 18k yellow gold prong settings with two tiny black spinels set above them.

This gorgeous and special variscite comes from the Poseidon Mine in Nevada. Variscite is closely related to turquoise and can look identical, but is still its own mineral. Metals such as chromium and vanadium present in variscite give this stone its wonderful green colors. Variscite from Nevada is very hard, durable, and color stable.

This pair of variscite are sisters, not twins—meaning they are a matched pair, but because they are natural stones, they are not an exact match. The spiderweb veining in each is totally natural and unique. This pair has a beautiful light blue-green color. They have excellent polish. The small black spinels set above complement them beautifully. 18k yellow gold posts and butterfly backs.
