|These earrings have nine lives The lynx is an elusive feline predator that prowls through the snow-covered wilderness like a ghost. According to myth, its vision was said to penetrate solid objects, and some even believed that a lynx could see through a person’s secrets and stare directly into the heart of the truth. Today the lynx is still considered magical whether it’s spotted in the woods, in a constellation… or in your ears. Our Lynx Earrings features Lucina, an elegant imitation of fabled cat’s eye stones, set in sparkling frames of European crystal rounds. The smooth, rounded discs shimmer with a band of light that travels across the man-made jewel, replicating the gemological phenomenon known as “;chatoyancy.”; Gems with similar natural optical “;special effects”; such as cat’s eyes and star rubies and sapphires (asterisms) are among the rarest and most desired precious stones on the planet. The finest examples sell for millions at auction and are usually confined to museums and the private collections of billionaires. But we’ve decided to “;let the cat out of the bag”; and make a fashionable, much more affordable version available to everyone.
