Description

These square shaped sterling silver stud earrings feature bezel set cabochons of fordite in shades of mint green and beige. What's fordite? It is an increasingly scarce material made from layer upon layer of cured car paint that built up in the old spray booths at car factories so these would make the perfect present for anyone who is into their cars. I cut and polished this material myself and it has come from the Dagenham ford plant probably in the 60's or 70's based on the layers of beige, white mint green and blue (some of the layers are sparkly - have a look at the second photo and then ponder who had a car that shade of sparkly green).
If you only need a single stud then drop me a message as I have a number of loose 'stones' from not only Dagenham but also the Detroit and Kentucky plants for you to choose from so it could be made to order.
Measure approx 7mm square, lightweight and comfortable to wear all day they are finished with sterling silver posts and butterfly scrolls.
Comes gift boxed.
