Sterling silver compass rose earrings with opal, larimar, and cubic zirconia on French ear wires.

Our sterling silver Opal and Larimar Compass Rose Earrings are a beautiful depiction of a meaningful and ancient navigational tool. Shimmering inlaid opal rings the compasses, while faceted cubic zirconia highlight the cardinal directions. Polished larimar stones add a pop of color to the center of the pendant, which hang from French ear wires.

The Compass Rose, sometimes called a rose of the winds, is a beautiful and timeless symbol of direction, discovery, and awakening. The four directions of the Compass Rose represent infinite possibilities, the past, the present, and the future. This symbol was once believed by sailors to bring them good luck and to bring them back home safely. It is a celebrated symbol of guidance through troubled seas and unfamiliar places. 

Our Opal and Larimar Compass Rose Earrings feature a blue-colored opal outer edge. Opal is one of the birthstones for October. It is also the stone given to celebrate the 14th year of marriage. The name "opal" comes from the Sanskrit word upala, which means precious stone. In Indian mythology, the Goddess of the Rainbow was turned into an opal because she was being chased by suitors. It is said that the "fire" in an opal can spark creativity. European cultures have long seen the opal as a symbol of hope and truth.

What is Larimar?

Larimar is a very rare gemstone. That is to say, only a small mountainous area in the Dominican Republic is where the gem can be found, and it is created by volcanic activity. Norman Rilling and Miguel Méndez discovered the gemstone in 1974, and Méndez created the name larimar, by combining his daughter's name, Larissa, and the Spanish word for sea, Mar. Larimar is a stunning Caribbean Sea blue color, which is perfect for our sea creature inspired jewelry. Some believe larimar to be a very spiritual stone. It is believed to increase speech and communication skills as well as aid the body's natural healing process. With our Opal and Larimar Compass Rose Earrings, you can appreciate this beautiful gemstone, its history, and its properties.
