Estuaries Emerald Figurehead Cameo Earrings

Little drops of coastal-hued emeralds feature striking inclusions that evoke the unusual aquatic metamorphosis found in estuaries, where oceans' tides meet rivers' streams. The inclusions of the drop earrings appear to be perpetually in motion like the transforming waters of estuaries, constantly in flow. Bright silver Ladies adorn the emeralds, adding mythical beauty to the aqueous gemstones.
