Iolite silver gemstone earrings
Iolite, also known as water sapphire, is a beautiful blue and brownish stone. These iolite stones are cut into a twisted drop with strong angles and flat reflective areas. The silver chainmaille is elegant and streamlined and is a great setting for the stones.
Iolite is a remarkable stone because the colour of the stone changes from different angles. This optical illusion is known as Pleochroism. Iolite is a deep beautiful blue from one angle and then from the other angle it is a brown or yellow grey. This stone was believed to be a shaman’s stone. It is used by many people to help them get in touch with their ‘third eye’ or their intuition.
The length of the earrings from the top of the ear wire is about 5cm. The iolite stones vary in size, they are approx 10mm x 6mm. The ear wires are handmade with eco-friendly commercially recycled sterling silver wire. The chainmaille setting is sterling silver and is handmade ring by ring.
