Pyrite gleams in the dimmest of light with its metallic sheen – no wonder it has been mistaken for gold by desperate miners in the past. Pyrite often has fissures and pits in its surface, which are a testament to its natural origin.
The gems in these earrings show a little marks from nature, but these do not affect the pyrite’s durability or beauty.
Handcut into a quatrefoil shape, the pyrite has been rimmed in sterling silver and sits between long, elegant earhooks and delicate looking silver filigree droplets.
A statement pair that gleam softly in a sophisticated and satisfying way.
Approximately 6.2cm long.
