Drop Sapphire Earrings
Sapphire Drop earrings feature one of the more sensual gemstone cuts and earrings designs. Teardrop and pear-shape drops refer to a pendulous shape. Teardrop Sapphire earrings can stand alone or are set in a halo of smaller white stones in many designs. There are round 'drop Sapphire earrings' as well. The shape is more like a spherical candy drop. Both drop Sapphire earring designs are very flattering because of the shape and the swing they have from the earlobe. As my mother used to say, quoting Satchmo, 'It doesn't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing'. When multiple gems are added in a row lengthening the design we have dangle earrings and when even more links and gem-set extensions are included, the jewels join the 'chandelier earring' style and category. Most gemstone drop earrings swing, dangling from the finding. There is a movement to drops in nature, art and design.
