These golden beauties glow with the light of a New England autumn afternoon. Solid 18K Yellow Gold in construction, these earrings hold a pair of 4mm round natural Blue Zircons in a tube setting which is unparalleled in it's security. Not to be confused with the man-made cubic zirconia, Zircon is a natural and noble gemstone in its own right. I often hear the confusion coming from my customers because of the Zircon/Zirconia sounds. I tell them it's the difference between lightning and a lightning bug. Thanks Mark Twain! Each of the Maple leaves was molded and cast from originals which were engraved and then chased and repouseed to in an attempt to mimic the natural contours. These earrings weight in at 7 grams total weight and are priced at $ 675.00.
