Victorian 18K yellow gold, rose cut diamond, and sardonyx dangle earrings. These Victorian beauties showcase two glossy sardonyx gemstones, each layered with bands of contrasting color and suspended below an elegant yellow gold trefoil encrusted with shimmering rose cut diamonds (weighing approximately 0.70 carats total weight, SI1, H/I). The original birthstone of August, Sardonyx has been a popular gemstone used in jewelry for thousands of years with some examples dating as far back as 4,000 years ago to Ancient Egypt. Ancient Greeks and Romans used the colorful gemstone as a talisman for strength and protection, while public speakers in the Renaissance era associated it with eloquence and wore it to aid clear thinking and communication.
