Australian Gold Nugget and Emerald Earring


This one-of-a-kind jewel is composed of a pair of bezel-set emerald tumbles suspending a pair of Australian gold nuggets. We hand matched these extraordinary elements to enhance the organic beauty of the natural materials.

The uncut tumbled emeralds from the Muzo mines feature irregular outlines and vibrant green tones that feel even brighter against the natural textured gold. Nuggets are formed from molten gold left after a volcanic eruption and years of tumbling in water. Accounting for less than two percent of gold and rarer than diamonds, gold nuggets are increasingly hard to find.

  • 2 Muzo emerald tumbles (6.38 carats total)
  • 2 Australian gold nuggets (23.5 karats)
  • 22-karat yellow gold
  • Post back earrings
  • Stamped with owl maker’s mark and 22k
