The chrysocolla drops are almost translucent as well as the round sapphires that twinkle a cornflower blue in these earrings. This is truly an earring design for the ages. But of what age? The pure gold and 18K yellow gold handfabrication technique adds a touch of the ancient to the look while at the same time the earrings have a triangular top to give them an Art Nouveau look. The combination of these styles creates one of the most elegant pair of earrings you will find. The earrings are hinged for movement to catch the eye and to provide comfort when worn.  The drops of a greenishblue chrysocolla at the bottom of these earrings let light pass through to give them a glow. The complementary faceted blue sapphires above add a richness to the earrings that only fine sapphire can. The colors and style go with any fashion day or night. I bet you will have a difficult time not putting these earrings on every morning.
