Yggdrasil Tree of Life Earrings. Brazilian Emerald Elongated Faceted Pear. All 925 Sterling Silver. Hand Wrapped Wire. Post and Butterfly Backed Earring. May Birthstone.
Forest Green Brazilian Emerald Tree of Life Earrings. These lovely earrings are made using Brazilian Emeralds which are the most gorgeous shades of green, deep, rich and earthy.
The Tree of Life finding is all solid Sterling Silver, with a post and butterfly back in the same. I have wrapped the Emeralds in Sterling Silver wire which I have contorted to represent tree roots.
Its colour reflects new spring growth, which makes it the perfect choice of a birthstone for the month of May. It’s also the gemstone for twentieth and thirty-fifth wedding anniversaries, as well as the traditional gemstone for the astrological signs of Taurus, Gemini, and sometimes Cancer.
Emerald is associated with the Heart Chakra and with blissful love. In groups of two or more people, Emerald can encourage bonding, and strengthen communication and understanding, helping each person to adequately express themselves without offending others.
The first known emerald mines were in Egypt, dating from at least 330 BC into the 1700s. Cleopatra was known to have a passion for emerald, and used it in her royal adornments.
Emerald is the most famous member of the beryl family. Legends endowed the wearer with the ability to foresee the future when emerald was placed under the tongue, as well as to reveal truth and be protected against evil spells. Wearing an emerald was believed to reveal the truth or falseness of a lover’s oath as well as make one an eloquent speaker.
✩The Tree of Life✩
in many religious interpretations, within myths, and as a mystical concept the Tree of Life represents the interconnectedness of all life on our beautiful planet. The Tree of Life connects all forms of creation. The Tree of Life is considered to be the symbol of 'Creator'.
In Norse mythology Yggdrasil is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. In both sources, Yggdrasil is an immense ash tree that is central and considered very holy. The gods go to Yggdrasil daily to assemble at their things. The branches of Yggdrasil extend far into the heavens, and the tree is supported by three roots that extend far away into other locations; one to the well Urðarbrunnr in the heavens, one to the spring Hvergelmir, and another to the well Mímisbrunnr. Creatures live within Yggdrasil, including the Wyrm (dragon) Níðhöggr, an unnamed eagle, and the stags Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr and Duraþrór.
✩Size (all measurements are approximate)✩
3.5cm from top of earwire to bottom
The emeralds are around 12x7mm. Please bear in mind they are hand faceted and also due to the beautiful inclusions no two will be exactly the same colour or size, but I will match them as close as I can.
The post style Sterling Silver ear-wire findings are suitable for pierced ears
*Due to the integral design of the ear findings a direct swap for non-pierced finding is not available. But if you like these Emeralds I could make you a pair of non-pierced earrings using the same stones, but with out the tree detail. Message me and request a custom design.
Your purchase will come gift wrapped in a lovely organza bag, acid free coloured/patterned tissue paper (colour+patterns may vary depending on season/item) and a sturdy outer packing mini corrugated cardboard box, ready to give as a loving gift to someone special or for a treat for yourself.
If you have any special requests, please ask.
✩The hand photo✩
Meet Mephisto the ceramic measuring hand, he will help show you the rough scale of the jewellery. The hand is exactly the same size as my own hand (I’m an average UK ladies size 7 glove).
