Carved Agate Teardrop Earrings with Gemstone Cluster of Ruby and Apatite



Fluted gray agate teardrops are topped with a cluster of  tiny teal and deep pink gemstones. I love how the carving adds subtle reflections and an overall richness to the translucent gray agate stones. Large teardrops - 20 x 15mm - are topped with individually wired ruby and apatite faceted stones. Embracing my rustic aesthetic even when using “fancy” gems, I chose to make all the head pins for the tiny faceted gems. The torch-melted silver balls are more pronounced (than manufactured ones) and add an artistic element of their own to the fringe.


Hand wired in 22-gauge sterling silver wire and with 24-gauge sterling silver handmade headpins. The agate teardrop and its cluster of rubies and apatite gems dangle from a sterling silver twisted wire ring. These gemstone cluster earrings are presented on sterling silver lever back ear wires that close for extra security.

These rustically elegant agate teardrop earrings measure 1 7/8 inches from the top of the ear wires. The width is slightly wider than 1/2 inch.

Put your hair up and stand next to a lighted holiday display and let these gemstone earrings glow. And smile, because you are wearing real rubies. Their rich pink-red color is unique and looks beautiful with the teal blue of apatite.
