These handmade created blue opal and freshwater pearl earrings are set in .925 sterling silver. The opal stones are a very light shade of blue and shaped like pears. Created opals have the exact same chemical composition as Earth mined opals, but they are slightly harder, making them perfect for jewelry! The freshwater pearls are light gray. These opal earrings were designed and created by artist Cheryl Sirkus in northern California. The earrings use a classic hook style ear wire that slips easily into the ear. The back of the earrings are stamped with “SAW” for the artist’s company, Sonoma Art Works, and “925” so you can rest assured you are getting genuine .925 sterling silver jewelry.
These petite earrings measure approximately 1.07″ long including the ear wire. At the widest point, the earrings measure approximately 0.38″ across. Please note that the dime is not included but is shown to help you gauge the size of the earrings.
Since opal is a birthstone for October, these earrings would make a great gift for anyone born in that month or with someone special born in that month. These earrings would be perfect for anyone who loves opal jewelry, pearl jewelry, or anyone looking for petite dangle earrings or handmade sterling silver jewelry. These brand new earrings come with our original store tags and gift box, great for giving or storage for years to come. The earrings also come with an information card from the artist which states the following:
Our designs are created in the studio of Sonoma Art Works, located in Sonoma Valley amidst the vineyards of northern California’s wine country. The jewelry is designed by the artist Cheryl Sirkus whose creations begin on her sketch pad and are transformed into the precious metals that are used.
The majority of our original designs have been hand cast in sterling silver and 14k gold vermeil. They capture the feeling of elegance and femininity in a very understated way. The semiprecious gemstones and pearls enhance their subtle and natural beauty.
We are pleased to share them with you.
