Foxtrot Leverback Earrings (Apatite)
Known for its smooth elegance, the dance called the Foxtrot is also noted for its versatility. It has evolved to encompass a range of tempos and a wide variety of figures.
With those attributes in mind, we've designed our Foxtrot earrings in a smooth teardrop shape with a bright mirror finish and a slash of elegant gemstone colour. As versatile as the dance, they'll enhance casual attire, office dress, a night out, or a formal occasion.
'Apatite' is derived from the Greek 'apatao,' meaning 'to deceive.' In the past, this sparkling gemstone was often mistaken for others.
According to gemstone lore, apatite is seen as a stone that decreases stress, increases focus and productivity, and makes us more aware of possibilities.
Our earrings are sterling silver, including the lever-back findings, and inlaid with apetite. The Foxtrot teardrop measures roughly 1 inch (25mm) by 3/8 of an inch (10mm), or 1 1/4 inches (32mm), including the leverback.
The stone in this necklace has been treated with a clear resin as part of the inlay process. This colourless resin serves to increase the durability of the stone.
