Gold surrounded by faceted emerald and pink sapphire mosaic earrings on carnelian. I mean, this is a garden hanging from your ear. A fabulous, colorful garden.
Emerald is a symbol of rebirth, believed to grant the owner foresight, good fortune, and youth. Emerald, derived from the word “smaragdus,” means, quite literally, “green” in Greek. Believed to hold many mystical powers, this gem was said to cure stomach problems, control epilepsy and stop bleeding. Maybe due to its soothing green color, it was also thought to be able to ward off panic and keep the wearer relaxed and serene.
Thank you, darling Sophanista.
