These gorgeous drop earrings prove that jewelry does not have to be cut and polished to perfection in order to stop you in your tracks. In fact, it is precisely the rough-hewn, wabi-sabi aesthetic that these minty green chrysoprase earrings exude that makes them so stunning. Two beautiful semi-opaque chrysoprase specimens, each measuring roughly 1/2" in diameter, are suspended within delicate claw settings of 14 karat rose and yellow gold and attached to sturdy 14 karat yellow gold ear wires.
