Lapis and Rhodonite Dangle Earrings, Lapis Lazuli Earrings, Blue and Rose Gemstone Earrings, Sterling Silver, Gift for Mom
Lapis lazuli, or lapis for short, is a deep blue metamorphic rock used as a semi-precious stone that has been prized since antiquity for its intense color.
Did you know they used to crush the stone and used the pigment in painting? Ultramarine is the color you get. Wikipedia says this:
At the end of the Middle Ages, lapis lazuli began to be exported to Europe, where it was ground into powder and made into ultramarine, the finest and most expensive of all blue pigments. It was used by some of the most important artists of the Renaissance and Baroque, including Masaccio, Perugino, Titian and Vermeer, and was often reserved for the clothing of the central figures of their paintings, especially the Virgin Mary.
Today, mines in northeast Afghanistan are still the major source of lapis lazuli. Important amounts are also produced from mines west of Lake Baikal in Russia, and in the Andes mountains in Chile. Smaller quantities are mined in Italy, Mongolia, the United States, and Canada.
These earrings feature 14mm coin shaped beads with 6mm Rhodonite rounds dangling from the bottom loop.
They'll pair with your favorite blue jeans and tank top for everyday wear, too.
Versatile, light and easy to wear.

I had bought these before, then lost one earring the first time I wore them. This time I was able to buy just one earring as a replacement. Matched beautifully! Go perfectly with the matchiing bracelet.

They go perfectly with my new navy and peachy pink floral sleeveless dress! Unfortunately, first time out, I lost one. I will aways use those little plastic balls in the future.
