Larimar, White Coral, and Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Cluster Earrings

These gorgeous Larimar focals really do look just like the ocean!
I have wrapped them in gold filled wire and presented them with faceted briolettes of Sleeping Beauty turquoise, and branches of white coral. The clusters of smaller stones consist of mother pearl, London blue topaz, sky blue topaz, tiny Sleeping Beauty turquoise rounds and shimmering white moonstones. Gold vermeil ear wires have been used.

The earrings measure a generous 2 1/2"(65mm.) from the top of the ear wires.

Here's a bit of history on Larimar, which is fairly new to the market and only found in one place on earth, which means it is in short supply and won't be available forever.

In 1974, at the foot of the Bahoruco Range, the coastal province of Barahona, Miguel Méndez and Peace Corps volunteer Norman Rilling rediscover Larimar on a beach. Natives, who believed the stone came from the sea, called the gem Blue Stone. Miguel took his young daughter's name Larissa and the Spanish word for sea (mar) and formed Larimar, by the colors of the water of the Caribbean Sea, where it was found. The few stones they found were alluvial sediment, washed into the sea by the Bahoruco River. An upstream search revealed the in situ outcrops in the range and soon the Los Chupaderos mine was formed
