Soft Colors ... Redux

sterling silver earrings prasiolite green amethyst pink tourmaline
I'm really taken by the softness conveyed by certain gemstones. For these earrings, I paired pale green with shades of pink.

At the bottom of this cascade of gemstones is a faceted cube of prasiolite (green amethyst). Above it are another prasiolite, some pink tourmaline rounds and a light green tourmaline barrel.

I choose not to oxidized the silver on earrings such as these, as I feel the bright silver best shows the beauty of the stones.
