Sold - 18k Gold Dotted Vine Earrings with White Chalcedony Drop
I really enjoy combining different leaf and vine elements to make these unique earwires. I sawed leaves from argentium* sterling silver sheet and fused them to silver wire and then added 18k gold dot embellishments. Below dangles a gorgeous faceted slice of white chalcedony--pristine. The chalcedony briolettes weigh a combined 40 carats! Earrings measure 2 1/8 inches long.
*argentium is a silver alloy like sterling silver and has as much pure silver as sterling. However, some of the copper is replaced by Germanium which lends tarnish resistance qualities to the silver. Your jewels stay brighter, longer!
