A perfect combination of traditional Indian silver work and the ageless glamour of shimmering labradorite, these earrings are certain to turn heads. Each earring features 6 natural faceted labradorite gemstones in a mix of pear and oval shapes, with a stunning glimmering effect achieved by the free-hanging gemstones that catch the light perfectly. A combination of techniques and textures give these earrings their unique detailed look, balancing polished high-shine elements with dark oxidised silver and traditional granulated silver embellishment to accentuate the hand-crafted detail of these gorgeous earrings.
Labradorite, named after the region in Canada in which it was first described, is characterised by its remarkable play of iridescent colours, called a ‘Schiller effect’, caused by the scattering of light between the thin layers of this beautiful mineral. Labradorite’s magical colours range from orange and gold, to mermaid green and bright peacock blue, and occasionally deep violet. Frequently these colours occur in the same stone, creating a dazzling interplay of colour and light, ensuring that no two stones are exactly the same. Labradorite has been treasured by Canadian First Nations people for centuries, prized for its resemblance to the Northern Lights. It is thought by some to be a powerful protector against negativity and misfortune, and to aid in meditation.
