Royal Inspired Padparadscha Earrings

Image
Padparadscha is a delicate light to medium toned pink-orange to orange-pink hue corundum, originally found in Sri Lanka, but also found in deposits in Vietnam and parts of East Africa. Padparadscha sapphires are rare; the rarest of all is the totally natural variety, with no sign of artificial treatment.

The name is derived from the Sanskrit "padma ranga" (padma = lotus; ranga = color), a color akin to the lotus flower (Nelumbo nucifera ‘Speciosa’)

Having the same elegant feel to them, this stunning color combination is all it takes for a sophisticated look. Antique brass and a soft pink-orange hue of the crystals, with detailed cabochon setting, for a royal look! This pair is sold! Made to order.
