Bright Green Tahitian Pearl & Oregon Sunstone Earrings on Gold

$298.00

Gorgeously green, highly lustrous yet imperfect Tahitian pearls are paired with sustainably mined champagne colored Oregon Sunstone. The dangle earrings mounted on 14/20 gold-filled wire and gold filled earwires.
 
Oregon Sunstone is only found in a small area of southeastern Oregon and is the official state stone of Oregon. The stones are unique in that their copper content gives them "shiller," that makes them twinkle with subtle colors much like our pearls. 

These sunstones we use were mined by hand at the Ponderosa Mine in Harney County that offers work to Native American youth in the area who would otherwise find it difficult to find jobs.

We hope you love the pairing of our pearls with these beautiful stones as much as we do. These pieces bring our two worlds together!
 
Gold filled has a 14K gold layer 5 to 10 times thicker than gold plated and is a good, affordable alternative to 14K gold. A solid layer of 14K gold is mechanically bonded with the base metal interior and makes up 1/20th the metal weight. It should not tarnish and is expected to last a lifetime.
