Laguna Agate Post Earrings with Amethyst and Red Spinel Clusters
These adorable laguna agates feature striated purple and red--such intense and amazing color and unusual! I gave them an oval frame and added amethyst and red spinel clusters, and gave the argentium sterling silver a bright, brushed finish. These post-style earrings measure a bit under 7/8 of an inch long and 1/2 inch wide and are secured by a silicon-covered silver friction ear nut for comfort and ease in putting them on.
About Argentium Silver
Argentium sterling silver is a silver alloy where most of the copper has been replaced by germanium which lends greatly enhanced tarnish resistance over standard sterling. It is .935 silver--more pure silver than .925 sterling. In addition, argentium sterling is produced using only recycled silver.
