Goldstone Earrings with Bronze Beads and Hooks
4 cm long cute little earrings with lovely goldstone beads! There are small, intricate copper beads and bead caps decorating the earrings from where the blue goldstone beads hang!
Goldstone is a man-made glass that has copper flecks suspended in it. This gives the stone the illusion of sparkle. It is usually made up of Gypsum and Feldspar, and often comes in reddish brown color. It’s been told that a bunch of alchemist monks trying to make gold were the first people who created Goldstone. In the process, copper shavings were accidentally knocked over into a pot of molten glass, creating the first piece!
Goldstone is historically known as Aventurine Glass, from the Italian word ‘avventurina’, which means ‘accidental’, derived from the root word ‘avventura’, which means ‘by chance, luck, or risk’.
It’s also known by the name Stellaria, Gold Star Glass, Gold Flux, Monkgold, and Monk’s Stone.
The hooks are made of bronze. If you prefer having a sterling silver or silicone hook you can easily purchase it in our webshop from the Product Add-ons menu. I will change the hooks for you and send your new pair of earrings with your preferred hooks.
This piece is also available as a pair of clips! Please select surgical steel clips in the Product Add-ons menu!
