Charoite Teardrop Earrings
Charoite is a unique stone found in one location in Siberia, Russia, and has been sought by jewelers since it’s discovery in the late 1960’s. It’s trademark shimmer is a result of a fibrous mineral that creates an optical reflective effect called chatoyancy. Jim Chow hand selects, cuts and polishes each piece of Charoite to highlight this magical quality. Jim began selling his jewelry at Pike Place Market in 1975 and is known for his extensive stone collection and traditional lapidary and silversmithing techniques.
These 1/2” stones are set in sterling silver and hang 1 3/8” including the hinged lever-back tops.
