Inspired by The Hobbit ® and The Lord of the Rings™, the immortal works by J.R.R. Tolkien, come the Mirkwood™ Elven Earrings. Each set of Emeralds of Girion™ earrings are carefully handcrafted one at a time in precious metal by the Badali Jewelry artists. The elven leaf earrings are an officially licensed The Hobbit jewelry design with Middle-earth Enterprises.
The Emeralds of Girion was a necklace belonging to Girion, the last Lord of Dale™. The necklace was given as payment for a coat of mail armor made by the Dwarves of Erebor™. The necklace was described as being "made of five hundred emeralds green as grass". The necklace was one of the fabulous treasures discovered in Smaug™, the dragon's hoard. At the end of the Battle of Five Armies™, Thranduil™, the Elvenking of Mirkwood, was given The Emeralds of Girion by Bard the Bowman™ in gratitude for his assistance.
The Mirkwood Elven Earrings are one design in a series of jewelry that feature the brilliant emeralds that were set in Girion's necklace. These emeralds are set in a pair beech leaves, the trees that J.R.R. Tolkien described as covering the great forest of Middle Earth™. These leaves were beloved by Elves and are also described as the leaves of Lothlorien™.
The Mirkwood Elven Earrings are available in your choice of sterling silver, 14k gold, 14k rose gold, 14k white gold or 14k palladium white gold (nickel free white gold). The sterling silver earrings are rhodium plated to prevent tarnishing. Rose gold and palladium white gold are custom options and are non-returnable / non-refundable. The elven earrings are a dangle style and include French ear wires. Each earring charm is set with a 6.5 mm round emerald green cubic zirconia. The Mirkwood earrings measures approximately 20.5 mm (1 1/4") long including bail, 12.5 mm (7/8") at the widest point and 4 mm (1/4") thick at the gemstone. The earrings weigh approximately 4.2 grams (2.1 grams each) in sterling silver, approximately 5.3 grams (2.6 grams each) in 14k gold.
