Chalcedony drop earrings
A sweet little pair of aqua blue chalcedony drops swing from handmade 14k gold wire spiral posts. Chalcedony is definitely a hot color this season. It has a strange internal glow that seems to stand out against either blonde or dark hair.
Style Guide: Great earrings for summer casual hangout time. They go well with whie linens and flip-flops. They are posts, so they are less likely to get lost than hooks if you, say, get drunk and dance along the beach. Just sayin'.
In case you were wondering, chrysoprase/chalcedony is cryptocrystalline, which means that it is composed of crystals so fine that they cannot be seen as distinct particles under normal magnification. The color comes from trace amounts of nickel in the silica base. Pretty neat huh?
