Description

Dichroic (pronounced dye-crow-ick) glass literally means ''two colored'' and is derived from the Greek words ''di'' for two, and ''chroma'' for color. Dichroic glass has amazing multi-colored and reflective properties. It can appear to have more than one color at the same time, especially when viewed at different angles. This reflective phenomenon is known as thin-film physics, which is also why you see swirling rainbow patterns in a soap bubble, floating colors from oil on water and the dramatic colors of dragonfly wings. Dichroic glass is not reflective because of special glass or textures. Instead, it is a special coating treatment that is done to the glass. This beautiful glass represents an adaptation of aerospace technology to the world of art. NASA originally developed dichroic glass for use in satellite mirrors in the early 1990s, and also uses it for re-entry tiles on space shuttles. Making dichroic glass requires a complex processing technique and is only made by a handful of manufacturers that have high-tech equipment like high temperature vacuum chambers, vaporizing electro-guns, and high temperature kilns.

This listing is for a pair of beautiful dichroic glass post style earrings that would be great as a birthday or anniversary present. The manmade glass has an amazing color shifting property with loads of sparkle. Each earring has a central dichroic glass cabochon measuring about 15mm x 12mm that has been set in a deep sterling silver bezel. The bezels have soldered sterling silver ear posts. The back of each earring is stamped 925.

If you like these beautiful earrings, also check out the dichroic glass pendant necklace also available in my shop. Together the necklace and earrings would make a perfect set.

FAQs

All orders are shipped with insurance and tracking where possible. All orders are packaged carefully to best assure it is delivered in good condition. I package all orders in cotton or polyester filled gift boxes suitable for gift presentation. All orders include a receipt. If the item is shipped as a gift, please leave a note so I can include a gift receipt identifying the buyer but omitting all pricing information. If you wish to have a card or note included at no additional cost, leave instructions in a note with your order.
I am located in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada and therefore collect Nevada Sales Tax on all orders shipped to addresses within the State of Nevada. In 2018, new sales tax legislation became effective requiring the collection of sales tax for all orders shipped to the States of Washington and Pennsylvania.
I happily ship to all countries where shipping is available. I ship via USPS. Importation of some items are not allowed by some countries. Please check import restrictions of your country prior to purchasing. I cannot anticipate the time it will take an order to clear customs so I am unable to provide delivery estimates for international shipments. Import fees and VAT are charges levied by countries to support their local industries so they are the responsibility of the buyer and cannot be added to my shipping charges. It is common practice for orders subject to import fees to have additional service charges assessed for the collection of fees. I will only include true information on customs forms and will not mark as gift.
If your order is damaged during shipment, inform me immediately by Etsy Conversation upon receipt. Retain the item and all packaging materials. The insurance investigation may require photos of the item and packaging and an affidavit from the buyer.
