Stunning Precious Gemstone Dangle Earrings

These gorgeous earrings feature a cluster of genuine precious gemstones. Ruby, Emerald and Yellow Sapphire are nestled around Amethyst briolette teardrops. All set in sterling silver.

I started with a beautiful semi-precious amethyst briolette in a faceted teardrop shape. I used a sterling silver, ball-tipped headpin to form the base of the earrings. Then I added a cluster of genuine, precious gems also on ball tipped sterling silver headpins fill in above the amethyst.

There are four precious gems in the world and this piece has three of them: Ruby (the birthstone of July), Emerald (the birthstone of May) and Yellow Sapphire (the birthstone of September.) All three precious gems are in the form of lovely micro-faceted rondelle gemstones.

These earrings are just really pretty and the quality of the stones is very nice. All findings are sterling silver. These earrings will match just about anything in your wardrobe with the deep, rich range of colors. They’re dainty but still noticeable and can be worn with anything.

They measure approximately 1.25″ from hook to tip.

This is a one-of-a-kind pair. I bought one set of matching plum amethyst briolette and do not have any more on hand. I absolutely love these earrings and hope you do too!

14K Gold Earrings Featuring Rainbow of Genuine Gemstones

A classically simple, dainty pair of earrings in 14k gold featuring a rainbow of genuine gemstones.

I started with a 14k gold filled, ball tipped headpin and then strung six genuine gemstones on. All gemstones are high quality, micro faceted rondelles. The French hooks are 14k plated and thus hypoallergenic for those sensitive to some metals.

The gemstones used in the piece starting from the bottom are:

* Ruby – one of four precious gemstones and the birthstone of July

* Imperial Topaz – a very rare form of topaz, these are pale yellow in color. Topaz is the birthstone of November and is semi-precious.

* Green Tourmaline – Tourmaline comes in a variety of colors and this one is a lovely olive tone. Tourmaline is semi-precious.

* Blue Topaz – Another semi-precious stone, blue topaz has a crystal clear blue sky color. It’s an alternative birthstone for December.

* Amethyst – Long associated with royalty, amethyst is a gorgeous and rich purple tone. This semi-precious stone is the birthstone of February.

* White Topaz – White topaz is a flawlessly clear crystal stone. It’s used as an alternative to diamond for April’s birthstone. Also semi-precious.

The earrings measure a total length just shy of 1.5″ long. They’re dainty and feminine. They would be a lovely gift for someone who likes rainbow colors, or who is interested in chakra healing and colors.

They would also be a very special gift for a young woman who may not want or need a large pair of earrings but for whom a pair of 14k gold gemstone earrings would be a special gift. It could be a pair of “grown up” jewelry all her own.

I only have the one pair of these at this time as I put them together with the extra gems leftover after other projects. To individually purchase this many stones to make a pair would be quite expensive so this is a great way to get some high quality gems in a lovely little, affordable package.

Phoenix Fire – Gorgeous Fiery Gemstone Cluster Dangle Earrings

Fiery colors of reds, oranges and yellows, these cluster dangle earrings are all genuine gemstone set in sterling silver. Inspired by my shop’s names these remind me of Phoenix Fire.

I started with a faceted lemon quartz teardrop briolette which I wire wrapped with non-tarnish sterling silver plated wire. Above it, a cluster of micro-faceted rondelles in semi-precious garnet and shaded citrine gemstones nestle together. Each rondelle is on a sterling silver, ball-tipped headpin. The earrings are finished with .925 sterling silver French ear hooks.

The earrings measure a little more than 1.25″ in total length from hook to tip. They sparkle and catch the light like crazy! This warm, rich color combination is perfect for summer and is very vibrant.

I loved these stones and this style so much I made a pair for myself personally! Every time I wear them, I get so many compliments. They’re a perfect size where they’re noticeable but not overbearing. You can wear them both with jeans or for a special occasion.

You will receive the exact pair shown and it’s the only one I can make at this time as I used my entire supply of gems on this pair.

Phoenix Fire Cluster Dangle Earrings

I’ve been wanting to make a pair of phoenix/fire color earrings for awhile. And the nice thing about making jewelry is that I also get to make custom pieces just for myself sometimes too. This was my first time making something just like this but I think it came out really lovely and I hope to be able to offer some in this style (but maybe in different color schemes as well) in my shop soon.

For now, look how pretty! Lemon quartz teardrop briolettes and micro-faceted rondelles in garnet and shaded citrine. All set in sterling.







So lovely. And I’m just so pleased with the colors and how they look worn as well. Like I said, this pair I made for myself to learn the technique and figure out the logistics but hopefully soon I can offer some my shop as well.

Sultan’s Collar Necklace

Here’s a custom piece I just finished last night. It was based on another piece that they really liked. I spent about a month ordering supplies from all over the world and waiting for them to arrive. Then I set about breaking down the pattern and figuring out how it all came together. I did it assembly-line style, counting out the groups of pieces I’d need. Once all the parts were ready, I assembled them all into one, cohesive necklace.

Took about four hours of assembly time total.

It was a challenge but it was fun stretching myself into something completely different. Don’t forget, I gladly accept custom orders so please contact me if you’d like something unique of your own. And check out the items for sale on PhoenixFireDesigns.com and PhoenixFire Designs @ Etsy.
