Beautifully chunky bezels surround rose cut doublet gemstones to create these eye catching studs . The doublet of rainbow moonstone over turquoise gives these earrings an iridescent and vibrant color. 3/8"DIA.
A doublet is two slices of different gemstones, usually an opaque gem on the bottom and a transparent gem on the top, layered one atop the other to create a unique color. Once they are layered they are cut into shape.
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth.
A rose cut gemstone has a flat bottom and a domed, peaked top. This is an old style cut that was commonly found in 1700-1800’s and is one Lisa frequently uses in her designs.
