Aphrodite earrings with lapis and pearl
As seen in Grazia
Our Aphrodite earrings are aptly named after the goddess of love and beauty.
Each main stone is meticulously carved by hand with our botanical inspired etched design. The upper part of the earring is hand hammered to give a molten effect, while the perfect Swarovski pearl at the bottom of the earring provides the ultimate contrast.
Lapis is a deep blue semi-precious stone that has been prized since antiquity for its intense colour. The Sumerians believed that the spirit of their gods lived within the stone, while the ancient Egyptians saw it as a symbol of the night sky. Since the earliest of times, lapis has been associated with strength and courage, royalty and wisdom, intellect and truth.
According to history and myth, pearls are symbolic of wisdom gained through experience. They are believed to offer protection, as well as attract good luck and wealth. It is also said that these little gemstones are symbolic of the wearer's loyalty, generosity, integrity, and purity. Pearl is also June's birthstone and frequently gifted on 1st, 3rd, 12th and 30th wedding anniversaries.
These beautiful earrings are crafted in 925 sterling silver and 22 carat gold vermeil. They are also available in pink chalcedony.
Size: 5.5 cm long and 2.5 cm at their widest point.
All of our pieces are handmade by talented artisans using ethically sourced gemstones.
We make our styles in 925 Sterling Silver for its durability and hypoallergenic quality. Our gold plated pieces are finished with a thick coat to give our pieces their beautiful finish. Solid gold styles will be made in 9, 14 or 18 carat gold.
We recommend following the care instructions on the card that is sent with your order to ensure the longest possible life for your jewellery.
All of our semi precious gemstones are completely natural, meaning that each stone is unique. There may be variations in colour and pattern, and inclusions can sometimes be visible within our stones. This adds to their natural beauty.
For every order made to Carousel Jewels, we plant one tree, and make a monthly donation of revenue to the Sea Shepherd Marine Conservation Group, who work to protect marine life globally.
Our packaging is plastic-free, and extracted from FSC® forests, that always replace the wood they cut down.
We love people, animals and plants - our guarantee is we treat them all with love and care.
