Orion’s Opal Earrings by Meredith Young


| /

Specs: A stellar combination of gemstones, Orion’s Opal Earrings are out of this world. The pave triangle tops feature 1.52 cts of gray spinels, .35 cts of denim spinel, and .6 cts of color-change garnets. Suspended below, dreamy, elongated, pear-cut opal drops hang like stars in the night sky. With classic post backs, these earrings are both comfortable and offer a touch of cosmic wonder.

Story: These sweet earrings are part of Meredith's Supernova collection. The stars are in constant transition - expanding and contracting. They have their own life cycle, much like humans, and are in a perpetual state of transformation. In many ways, life consists of accepting the cyclical nature of being. Supernova is the collapse and subsequent explosion of a giant star, and ironically it is a death and a re-birth. Meredith encourages us to see ourselves as infinite and beyond measure. After all, a supernova is responsible for scattering heavier elements like carbon that comprise our solar system's components. We are connected to this phenomenon, and it serves as a mirror to our experience on Earth.
