These delicate earrings sparkle and glow with glittery Czech glass beads and faceted peridot gems. A gold-crested green glass cathedral beads tops a tiny, Czech glass rondelle. A charm made of three faceted 3mm peridot gemstones finishes the earrings, which hang from handmade, 12K gold-filled ear wires and measure 2″ in length. They are light in weight and beautiful to look at.
These earrings are part of our Tiny Treasures™ collection, featuring smaller and more delicate pieces made primarily of Czech glass with gemstones and crystals.
Czech glass has been renowned for centuries for its innovative and distinctive colors and finishes. Prior to the 1830s, these beads were painstakingly cut by hand with knives. Today, Czech glass beads are machine made, but no less fascinating. The seemingly endless selection of colors, patterns, textures and styles lend themselves to a vast array of unique jewelry designs.
Peridot is associated with harmony, good health, restful sleep and peacefulness. It is known as a stone of compassion that can calm anger and bring renewal, and is the birthstone for August.
Just as no two stones are alike, no two of these earrings will be the same. Handmade pieces will by nature be imperfect.
