How to describe these chatoyant* Tiger Eye Gemstone Earrings? The fiery gemstone palette and intriguing striated patterns suggest so many things: A hidden passage, a cave older than time, a secret door, perhaps stone steps leading upward into a sunset over the desert.
Or perhaps, you'll see a woodland in autumn, or a modern abstract painting within the faceted surfaces of the rectangular stone dangles.
Whatever they bring to mind, this unusual pair, designed and handmade by Mollie Meserve, will make a fabulous fall fashion statement - unique, warm and rustic, earthy and natural. They'll dress up casual, everyday outfits - cords, sporty shirt, cardigan or tweed jacket - and will add subtle interest to business attire and tailored style ensembles.
Colors range from golden yellow and mossy green to russet red and burnt orange, from deep dark brown to honey, caramel and mocha with touches of gray.The stone rectangles are stacked with petite copper beads and spacers and small round globes of complementary gems, all dropping down from Mollie's hand forged copper hook earwires.

*Chatoyant = to iridescent. Chatoyancy, from French œil de chat (cat's eye), refers to a band of reflected light which causes the luster or color to move just below the surface of a gemstone. In tiger's eye, chatoyance results from naturally occurring fibrous material in the composition of the stone.
