Traverse the heights of Oregon’s mountains with American Gem Collection piece #179 “Cascade Range.” Crafted in 14k gold, 6.94 carats of natural Oregon Sunstones of different shapes dangle, creating a dazzling display of color. Oregon Sunstone, though most well-known for red and orange hues, can form in a variety of color, including, green, peach, and cognac. All colors of this mesmerizing stone are featured in these earrings. Named for the Cascade Mountains that reach through the Northwest, these earrings represent the colors of the sky as the sun travels across the horizon. As the sun casts the first rays of light across the landscape, the sky at dawn goes from darkness to illuminated, ethereal grey with hints of yellow and orange. At true daybreak, vibrant yellow, orange, and red fill the sky with color. During the day, the Oregon sky is clear, though perhaps filled with clouds. And again, at dusk, the sky returns to a saturated, glowing orange. The gemstones in these earrings follow the colors of the sky from sunrise to sunset. Oregon Sunstone is unique in that it has inclusions of copper that stream across the gem, giving it the illusion of being lit from within. Because of this inner light, Oregon Sunstone is said to bring good fortune, warmth, and direction to those who wear it.
