Round and marquis-shaped lava rocks — a Schiaparelli favorite — in sapphire blue are separated by round faceted deep-sapphire-glass stones in these 1950s earrings. The lava rocks really glow with blue and pinky-purple lights. The setting is silver-tone metal with clip-backs. Wear these earrings off-duty, to the office, and in the evening.
