Australian Gold Nugget and Turquoise Earring


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

With a classic color combination, the bezel-set rounded form of the turquoise balances the convex shape of the 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.
