Created to represent the colour of the planets and relationship between each.

Just the four rocky planets which are closest to the sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. In between each gemstone bead there are sterling silver tubes and the beads move freely on the wire.

Sterling silver hoop ear wire: - 1.75" (4.5cm) wide

MERCURY / haematite, 4mm
VENUS / soochow jade, 8mm
EARTH / apatite, 8mm
MARS / red agate, 6mm

The image shown here is an example of how the earrings will look. I carefully choose semi precious beads that look appropriate for each planet, but as the pieces are created from natural gemstones they will differ from piece to piece.
