Cubo Drop Earrings - Lapis Lazuli
Solid 9 Karat Yellow Gold and Lapis Lazuli 'Cubo' Hook Earrings.
These bashful minimalist drop earrings combine a deep-blue lapis lazuli cube with a solid 9 karat yellow gold twisted ear hook. The 6mm square cubes of natural lapis lazuli gently dangle on their 9 karat yellow gold ear hooks with twisted detailing. Carefree pieces to wear year-round.
Fun fact: Lapis lazuli is the perfect gift for September birthdays in the UK, and December birthdays in the USA.
Each cube is hand-selected for colour and quality in our Dublin studio and paired with our handmade twisted ear wires in solid 9-karat yellow gold.
History: Lapis lazuli literally means blue rock. It is rarely solid blue but rather has white spots of calcite (the fewer the better) and even some fine brassy flecks of pyrite. Lapis Lazuli has been mined in North-Eastern Afghanistan region for over 6000 years and is still the major source of lapis lazuli today.
Lightweight and comfortable to wear these super versatile lapis lazuli earrings will easily go from casual daywear to elegant evening wear. Quirky yet elegant they will fit perfectly with any outfit in your wardrobe.
Metaphysical properties: Known as the stone of truth, lapis lazuli stimulates objectivity, clarity and encourages creativity. Lapis lazuli helps to confront and speak one's truth and inspires confidence. These edgy and fashionable earrings are wonderful as a gift for someone you love, or for yourself.
Wear these earrings on their own or pair them with our matching necklaces.
