This intricate pair of white gold filigree earrings is embellished with eight Montana-mined bright orange sapphires. The placement of these sapphires against the delicate white gold background makes for a bewitching combination. Additionally, each earring features a brilliant white center diamond for added sparkle. These spectacular earrings are also available in additional color choice combinations (both sapphire and gold tone).
GORDON'S DESIGN NOTES: "I wanted to create a set of intricately feminine earrings. Once the basic design was set, I decided to make different combinations of colored gemstone and metal colors so each pair would remain unique. I chose ethically sourced, fancy colored Montana-mined sapphires for their spectacular range of colors. I purchased the sapphires from a gemologist/gem dealer who, along with the designer, donated the Chonchita Montana Sapphire Butterfly to the Smithsonian Institute."
