The Firefly, the enigmatic summertime favorite, crafted in antiqued Sterling Silver, enhanced with luminous glowing Rainbow Moonstone Bullet Cabochons, our signature stone. We find the glowing Moonstones beautifully symbolize the mysterious and beloved phosphorescent glow of these little members of the beetle family.
We handcraft these unique Earrings in the round, in our family studio in New York. These Sterling Earrings will be made for you, not the exact Earrings in the photos.
Syle/Size: Firefly Earrings will hang just below the earlobe on graceful handcrafted Sterling Ear Wires, or we can craft them with Sterling Posts and Backs, or with Self-Locking Sterling Wires, your choice. They are approximately 1" long, and their wing width is approximately 1/2".
** These Insect Earrings, like most of our work, will be crafted for you, please allow time for if they are to be gifts, and kindly let us know if you have a specific date needed by before purchase. Our current in-house orders will affect our production times. June is Firefly Season in the U.S., order yours early! They will be shipped via Priority Mail in the U.S.
We craft our Fireflies with other gemstones, Peridot Bullets of the traditional North Eastern Firefly, or bright Swiss Blue Topaz which represent the "Blue Ghost" Fireflies (Phausis reticulata) found in the woods of the eastern and central United States. The species is common in the southern Appalachians, and can be seen in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Chattahoochee National Forest, as well as North Carolina's DuPont State Forest and Pisgah National Forest.
We also offer warm, honey Citrine as a third option- your preference. Citrine, a birthstone for November is known as the "healing quartz". This golden gemstone is said to support vitality and health while encouraging and guiding hope, energy and warmth within the wearer. Some feel the NE Fireflies glow is more of a warmer, yellow light, this would be well represented by Citrine.
Each pair of earrings is signed & dated, and comes tucked in a pouch in our gift box, with our handcrafted card with a bit of Firefly lore, as it it close to our hearts, ready for unique gift giving or safe-keeping.
