Hand-crafted in 18kt yellow gold, these dynamic earrings are a versatile design that can go from "dressed up " for evening wear to " dressed down " with your favorite Saturday jeans.

The dendritic agates are cut and polished in an elongated tongue shape to show off the dramatic pattern of dendrites within the colorless chalcedony quartz.

Dendritic Agate is a translucent colorless to milky white variety of Chalcedony, a microcrystalline form of quartz, with dark brown and black dendrite (fern-like) patterns due to the presence of manganese and iron oxides.   It is often found in Brazil, India, Madagascar, the USA, Mexico and Khazakstan. The Dendritic Agates featured in these earrings are from a specific locality in Montana, known for striking patterns as seen here.

Carl Faberge, the famed Russian jeweler to the Czars and Russian Imperial Court from 1885 to 1916,   often used dendritic agates together with diamonds and other colored gemstones in his exquisite creations.   Dendritic agate is reveled in Russia as a gemstone of long life, good health and prosperity.

From the side,   you can see the sturdy cap around the dendritic agates as well as the heavy bezel frame surrounding the tourmalines.  A graceful line from the gently curved ear wires to the soft edges and shape of the dendritic agates to the tip of the earring,   present a simple yet sophisticated design that are easy on the eyes and comfortable on the ears.

Each earring dangles freely from the earlobe by a curved earwire,  swaying with your every move.  A dynamic look that is sure to capture attention,  even from afar.

The ear wire locks in place by a c-shaped clasp mechanism for added safety.
