Ice Queen Earrings
Like moonlight reflected on a glacier, gems sparkle and glow
As crisp and bright as a full moon shining on snow, these earrings capture light and transform it into sparkle and shimmer. The palette plays the rich twilight blue of sapphire against the icy brilliance of natural zircon and sheen of moonstone.
“I was inspired by Hans Christen Anderson’s Snow Queen fairy tale. The unusual cut of the zircon reminds me of snowflakes, and the moonstone reminds me of icicles.” – Alexia Connellan
Faceted white zircon and brilliant-cut diamonds play against rich royal blue sapphire. Moonstone briolettes shine with adularescence.
The exquisite craftsmanship of hand-fabricated platinum makes these unique earrings a modern heirloom.
Arrange Your Private Consultation
To appreciate the beauty and quality of couture jewelry, you need to see it, touch it, try it on, and watch the gems dance in the light. Make an appointment for a private consultation to experience Alexia’s collection in person. You can find a jewel that speaks to you or commission a custom creation.
How to Commission
a Bespoke Jewel
Would you enjoy a one of a kind jewel inspired by your favorite work of art, natural wonder, or personal journey? Here’s how Alexia will make your jewelry dream a reality.
The Inspiration Alexia interviews you to uncover what inspires you and makes you happy. You discuss gems, colors, shapes, and the feeling you want to have when you wear your jewel.
The Gem If you don’t already have a personal gem that you’d like to feature in your jewel, Alexia will search the world to find the perfect gem to realize your vision.
The Design Alexia sketches original designs for your jewel, refining the concept and execution until it suits you perfectly.
The Model The sketch then takes shape in three dimensions, either through computer modeling, traditional wax carving, or directly fabricated by hand into metal.
The Setting The final model is then precisely created in precious metal and the gems will be set into the metal by hand, one at a time. The metal is polished to perfection and your jewel is ready for you to wear.
