The color scheme of these Margherita Burgener chrysoprase pieces slays me. They’re not sold as a set, but they were listed in the same auction and they clearly match.
These earrings are simple, but oh, the colors! They’re just begging to adorn a hazel-eyed brunette (I volunteer!). Each earring features – from top to bottom – a pavé-set diamond surmount, a circular-cut chrome diopside link, and a chrysoprase drop with a pavé-set diamond cap. The colors are bold but the size – 1.5 inches – means these beauties wouldn’t be overly loud.
Have you seen chrysoprase in person? It’s the most marvelous, softly glowing green color. I nearly bought a gold and chrysoprase necklace a few weeks ago at the Maryland Renaissance Faire. By that I mean I wore it for a while while I looked at the jeweler’s other pieces and wondered which of my internal organs might be the most marketable/nonessential and then handed it back and walked quickly away.
The ring is a very funky shape – a little funkier than my normal style, but the kind of piece I would admire greatly on a funkier friend. The ring is of crossover design and set in 18 k white gold. It’s set with a carved chrysoprase as well as pavé-set diamonds and tsavorites.
This post originally only contained one pair of earrings, but lo and behond, I just found more that would go perfectly with the ring! And because I am super into chrysoprase right now and the color is seasonally appropriate, I decided to add more.
These funky earrings involve chrysoprase and diamonds only. How amazing are those lines? So fun and fresh. At 2 3/8 inches, these earrings make a larger green statement than their cousins above.
These beauties involve the same materials as the first two Margherita Burgener chrysoprase pieces, but in a different way. They’re slightly larger than the first pair – 1 3/4 inches long – and feature a chrysoprase drop suspended from pavé-set diamond link and a line of chrome diopside leading to a pavé-set diamond surmount.
Are you as into this color scheme as I am? Which earrings are your favorite?
