Fresh from the studio, these stunning earrings feature Fossil Coral, (see description below) and lovely fresh water pearls, set as always in sterling silver. I would classify these as statement earrings, guaranteed to charm and delight! The Fossil Coral is a lovely creamy colour with amazing patterns. I have dangled these from a medium length sterling ear wire-Scroll thru’ images for up close peek.”
About Fossil Coral Semi Precious Stone
Fossil coral is a natural type of gemstone formed by ancient corals. The proper name for fossil coral is ‘agatized coral’ or ‘agatized fossil coral’, because during formation, the coral remains are gradually replaced with agate, a variety of naturally occurring chalcedony or quartz. When prehistoric corals are fossilized through replacement with agate, the fossil coral forms through hardened deposits left by silica-rich waters. The entire process can take over 20 million years and occurs only under very unique geological conditions. Corals are marine animals and it is their skeletons that are fossilized and preserved, often leaving flower-like patterns in the stone. Fossil coral should not be mistaken for endangered or protected reef coral or precious coral.

Hi Renee, To say that I am addicted is probably an understatement and at last count I am care taking (as I consider that they will be pieces I will pass on to my daughters) over 30 pairs of stunning earrings and now two pendants. I am constantly stopped and asked about your pieces and it gives me much pleasure to tell them about the earrings and of course, you. Keep doing what you do because not only are the pieces beautiful but they are unique and make me feel truly happy when I wear them! Cheers, Ros
