Inspired by The Hobbit™ and The Lord of the Rings™, the immortal works by J.R.R. Tolkien, come the Mirkwood™ Emeralds of Girion™ Elven Earrings, officially licensed The Hobbit jewelry design with Middle-earth Enterprises.
The Emeralds of Girion was a necklace belonging to Girion, the last Lord of Dale™. The necklace was given as payment for a coat of mail armor made by the Dwarves of Erebor™. The necklace was described as being "made of five hundred emeralds green as grass". The necklace was one of the fabulous treasures discovered in Smaug™, the dragon's hoard. At the end of the Battle of Five Armies™, Thranduil™, the Elvenking of Mirkwood, was given The Emeralds of Girion by Bard the Bowman™ in gratitude for his assistance. The Mirkwood Elven Earrings are one design in a series of jewelry that feature the brilliant emeralds that were set in Girion's necklace. These emeralds are set in a pair beech leaves, the trees that J.R.R. Tolkien described as covering the great forest of Middle Earth™. These leaves were beloved by Elves and are also described as the leaves of Lothlorien™.
Each set of Mirkwood Elven Earrings are individually handcrafted in sterling silver, rhodium plated to prevent tarnishing and set with a 6.5mm round emerald green cubic zirconia. The Mirkwood earrings are a dangle style with french ear wires and measures ~20.5 mm (1.25") long including bail, 12.5 mm (7/8") at the widest point, 4 mm (.25") thick at the gemstone and each weigh approximately 2.1 grams.
