Faceted Citrine Briolettes and Sapphire Earrings

Faceted Citrine Briolettes and Sapphire Earrings I bought these stunning faceted Citrine Briolettes on a whim - I wasn't sure how to inocorpate them into a design, as these gemstones are "half - top drilled". But - the clarity and intense sunshine yellow of the citrine and the perfectly carved facets were all I needed to see! Similar to a pearl, the top-drilled gemstone does not have a hole that runs the length of the bead, either horizontally or vertically. So, I attached a sterling silver wire and paired these beautiful faceted beads with Sapphires - yellow and gold are always such a classic combination! I think the result is a beautiful combination of gemstones in a slender but sleek earring.

The earrings measure approximately 1 5/8" in length from the top of my hand forged, sterling silver ear wires to the bottom of the earring. Increibly lightweight - you will forget you put these precious gemstones in your ears!

 All metals used in this design are .925 sterling silver.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.


NOTE: 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these earrings will be donated to Miracle Horse Rescue, a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for helping me help those who cannot help themselves!
