Soft Rose Quartz Swarovski Pink Opal Gunmetal Chain Niobium Earrings
Soft and precious rose quartz makes "Kayla's Hope" chandelier earrings a reflection of both the softer side and sexier side of love. The soft pink really stands out against the darker gunmetal chain and empire link. To begin I selected Grade A rose quartz rounds which came from Brazil and created hand-wrapped links with filigree gunmetal bead caps on each end. These links were attached to beautifully detailed Empire links from TierraCast in a gunmetal finish. Romantic scrolling swirls of design are clearly seen in these lovely Empire links. To add even more movement and texture I added loops of chain from Via Murano in a finish called blackjack. Both TierraCast and Via Murano products are produced in the United States.
The entire chandelier was then attached to black niobium ear wires which were embellished by me using small gunmetal saucer beads. On top of the saucer beads I added genuine Swarovski Austrian crystals in a shade called rosewater opal. Swarvoski is renowned for their gorgeous laser cut crystals. Niobium is a metal that is closely related to titanium. Never coated or containing any harsh metals which makes them perfect for anyone with metal-sensitive ears.
Rose Quartz is silicon dioxide crystal and is one of the most common varieties of the Quartz family. It is found in abundance around the world and occurs only in massive form, with no crystal faces, edges or terminations. It is hazy to translucent, and is usually found in the cores of granite pegmatites. Its name is derived from its soft rose color, which ranges from very pale pink to deep reddish-pink and is due to trace amounts of titanium, iron, or manganese in the massive material.
These earrings will dangle approximately 2 1/2 inches or 6.3 centimeters in length from the tops of the niobium ear wires to the bottom of the gunmetal chain. Kalya's Hope earrings will come packaged in an organza pouch for storage or gift giving.

Note: Please be aware that not all monitors will show colors exactly the same. The colors may appear lighter or darker based on the type of monitor you have. As I edit my photos I ensure they are as exact as they can be to my jewelry pieces. Natural and artificial lighting can enhance or diffuse shades of stones and crystals as you wear them. I also use different backgrounds in my photos so that you can see some of the color variance. Enjoy!

The colored ear wires are either copper, brass or Niobium. The findings used are either .925 sterling silver, silver-plated brass, copper or pewter. I have been assured by my supplier that they are lead & nickel free. Most are made in the USA by TierraCast.
