These faceted white chalcedony teardrops were hand wrapped with sterling silver wire in an organic zen-like pattern. Each one is accented with a small silver spirals, and they dangle from sterling silver earring hooks.
The pair shown here is representative of the style and quality that you’ll receive, though each pair will have minor variances due to the fact that they’re handcrafted works using natural materials. They’re just under 1.25″ long total, or about 3/4″ from the base of the earlobe.
The last photo shows these alongside a dime for scale. As you can see, I offer similar styles in amethyst, Andean opal – and a few more gemstones to be added soon!
Folkloric properties of white chalcedony: chalcedony is a form of microcrystalline quartz, and several ancient cultures believed that it could offer protection to travelers and drive away evil spirits. The stone is associated with the zodiac signs Cancer and Aquarius, as well as the planet Saturn. White chalcedony has been called the “mother stone” and it is said to have a protective energy that shields the wearer and helps to balance emotions.
