One-of-a-kind handcarved and polished Big Sur Jade earrings by Stuart Scally. Graceful heartleaf shaped stone is 2” long and 1” wide at the widest point. Total earring length from top of sterling hook to bottom of heart is 3”. Jade is a lovely rare light sage color with bluish undertones and a generous scattering of natural dark green-black patches.

Big Sur is known for its offshore deposits of nephrite jade, pieces of which can be found washed up on the south coast beaches. Local jade ranges in color from light icy green to nearly black. The flowing lines of the polished stone shine with the deep magic of the ocean it came from, and it is considered a lucky stone, which will bring its bearer good fortune. Stuart Scally has been carving jade for over twenty years. Currently based in Santa Cruz, he works with jade from all over the world, with a focus on locally-sourced gems from Big Sur and the central coast. His style is simple and clean, a no-frills approach that allows the natural colors and variations in the stone to shine.

A lovely addition to the collection of any lover of hearts or jade - or both!
