These beautifully handmade drop earrings add a splash of colour to any outfit and are exquisitely made. Lapis Lazuli is a deep blue, semi-precious stone flecked with gold, and has been a highly prized gemstone for centuries. In the Middle Ages, it was ground into powder and made into ultramarine, one of the most expensive and sought after blue pigments. It was desired by most artists of the renaissance and baroque periods.
You may recognize the colour from Vermeer’s famous painting ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’. These medium-weight earrings are sold on their own or in a set that includes the necklace. This ‘Girl with a Pearl and Lapis Lazuli Earring’ is fabulous gift for any occasion.
