The Gemstone Collection features beaded dangle earrings that combine 18k vermeil leverback closures and multi-colored faceted gemstones, handmade and strung in the studio. These earrings sparkle with both black and green sapphires and are approximately 1 7/8" in length.
These earrings are the perfect complement to the Multi Gemstone Necklace with Black Sapphire & Green Sapphire in Q's Gemstone Collection. The longer 2 1/2" earrings can be found here.
What is a Leverback?
Drop, Hoop and Dangle earrings are often made with a leverback closure. Leverback earrings hook through a piercing and fasten by pushing the lever at the base of the earring closed. The lever moves on a hinge and is easy to open and shut, but it stays securely fastened while worn.
Gemstone Meaning - Green & Black Sapphire
Green sapphire symbolizes tranquility and calmness. A green sapphire's significance is also associated with trust, loyalty, and integrity. It's often thought that those who wear green sapphire jewelry are encouraging love, thoughtfulness, and peace. Black Sapphire is a beautiful and mystical stone that has been prized for centuries. The black color of the stone is said to represent strength, power, and protection—as well as good luck and fortune.
