Verdura Moonstone and Carved Chalcedony "Twisted Ribbon" Clip Earrings


These Verdura earrings of carved chalcedony and moonstones were created in the 2000s. Each earclip with omega back centers a moonstone cabochon framed by a tapering twisted ribbon of carved bluish gray chalcedony, mounted in 18K white gold. These unusual clip earrings charmingly combine moonstone's mysterious and evanescent blue light with softly sculpted stone.

The Duke of Verdura was always fascinated by the subtle color effects and refined palette he could create with hardstones. Over time, he became increasingly interested in how to "make diamonds, rubies, and emeralds merge" with pietre dure.
