Handcrafted in the USA by Skilled Artisans
These Sapphire chandelier earrings are lovingly and meticulously handcrafted in the USA by skilled artisans. Created with quality from start to finish, Sapphire chandelier earrings of this level of detail and quality will bring your wardrobe beauty for years to come, as they are designed to last. The creation process starts first with detailed sketches which are then carefully and intricately hand-engineered with gold, silver and semi-precious gems and pearls. Sapphire chandelier earrings like these are first made by hammering gold or silver into drop-shapes and then adding the "seed" gems or beads. This particular pair is made by "weaving" the tiny sapphires and iolite gems into the shapes you see which creates a very "lacy" or "crocheted" effect which can resemble filigree and becomes a very intricate attribute.
This pair of Sapphire chandelier earrings is made specifically with traditional blue sapphires and violet iolite, and they hang around 2-3/4" long.
Available in either 14K gold-filled, rose gold-filled, or sterling silver. This piece is entirely handmade by Calico Juno Designs in their studio in New York City.
