Solvar Jewelry Connemara Marble Shamrock Earrings $99.00
Connemara Marble Shamrock Earrings. Solvar introduces this timeless design combining Ireland's unique Connemara Marble and Marcasite, both millions of years in the making, to create this shamrock collection in Sterling Silver.
The center of these earrings are made from Connemara Marble. Connemara Marble is one of the oldest marbles in the world about 600 million years old. It is mined in the Connemara region of the west of Ireland. Many years ago it was used for fixtures in state buildings and churches but now only small quantities are mined for jewellery. Each piece is individual with variations in the green colour, markings and veining.
Surrounding the shamrock and the marble you will find small pieces of beautiful Marcasite. Marcasite is a term applied to small polished and faceted stones that are traditionally inlaid in sterling sliver creating beautiful jewelry with a classic and sophisticated appeal.
