Flattering on everyone, this earring offers a punch of color on an otherwise delicate filigree design. These sterling silver earrings use Lisa Robin's Portale' design with a heart shaped checker board cut gemstone drop. Total length is 1 3/4".
The checkerboard cut is a technique where the gem stone is cut into a multitude of square facets spaced regularly around the stones surface, giving a 'Checkerboard' effect of light and dark squares when moved in the light.
It is believed that those who wear green onyx, a form of chalcedony, will improve their confidence, make wise decisions, and promote physical stamina.
Lisa Robin's signature jewelry collection, the Portale (por-TAHL-lay) pieces take their name from the Italian word for doorway. This design was inspired by a wrought-iron lintel above a doorway on a quiet street in Florence, home to some of the world's most beautiful art and architecture. The Portale design makes its way into many of Lisa's pieces, necklaces, pendants, earrings, and bracelets, somehow.
