Black Lip Oyster and Rock Crystal Doublet Dangle Earrings.
These beautiful round doublet briolettes are truly outstanding and have an inner glow with hints of pink and purple from the bottom layer of Black Lip Oyster Shell. If you have never heard of Black Lip Oyster shell then you should know that it produces the spectacular Black Tahitian pearls which I think are the best that money can buy and they are extremely expensive! The layer of faceted Rock Crystal on top really magnifies the colour play of the pinks and purples within the Oyster shell. In between each of the layers gold leaf has been brushed onto the top of the Oyster shell for added interest...making these doublets really extravagant!
I have wire wrapped and hand coiled 24k Gold Vermeil wire and added tiny Gold Vermeil daisy spacer beads to the back and front of these earrings as well as on top of the coiling, and suspended from simple Gold Vermeil shepherds hook earring wires.
The doublets measure in diameter:- 10mm
The daisy spacer beads measure:- 3mm
The earrings measure:- 1 and 3/8 inches (35mm)
