Ocean Jasper Post Earrings with Swiss Blue Topaz Fringe
These ocean jasper feature a gorgeous display of blue and greens with spherical inclusions at different depths in the stones. I've set them in argentium sterling silver and added a cluster of swiss blue topaz, tsavorite garnet and emerald at the base. The posts are silver and are secured with a friction-style silver earnut encased in silicone for stability and comfort.
The earrings are 7/8 of an inch long and 1/2 an inch wide.
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Argentium sterling silver is a silver alloy where most of the copper has been replaced by germanium which lends greatly enhanced tarnish resistance over standard sterling.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.
