Purple, Earrings, Gemstone, Lepidolite, Fairy Style, Rose Gold Plated
The Isle of Skye where I live and work, has such an affinity with the fairy folk – its inevitable that Indigo Berry jewellery should be infused with a touch of the fey and fairy tales. These earrings feature the unusual stone lepidolite with its gorgeous berry tones. Lepidolite is sometimes referred to as the “grandmother stone” or the “peace stone” because it is thought to have nurturing and calming properties. Personally I chose it for these earrings because of its magical lustre and ‘barely there’ sparkle. Magical. Strictly speaking, that ‘magic’ is because lepidolite is a mica and those sparkles are the flakes of lithium in its composition. But put that technical stuff to one side and enjoy this purple pink mica for its magic and you cant go wrong!
Teamed with rose gold plated fairy wings and finished with rose gold plated ear wires. Drop length 2cm.
They come wrapped in tissue in a pretty organza bag along with information about the gemstone and tips on caring for your gemstone jewellery.
