Herkimer Diamond Earrings
These herkimer diamond earrings contain the most sparkly, nugget-shaped gemstones. These stones are found in Herkimer County, New York, and they are not real diamonds at all, but clear quartz. They are called herkimer diamonds because they are known for their exceptional clarity and diamond-like appearance. A short row of these glittery stones is suspended between lengths of gold-filled chain in a pretty trapeze style that I just love. They look like tiny ice chips. Gold vermeil earwires complete these elegant earrings.
Diamond is the birthstone for April, and these Herkimer diamonds are a great substitute for the real thing.
Earrings are approx. 2 3/8" (6cm) long from the top of the earwires to the bottom of the gemstones.
Your jewellery will be packaged in a small gift box. Gift wrapping is available upon request.
What is Gold-Filled?
Gold-filled is an economical alternative to solid gold. By law, it has 1/20th by weight layer of 14 karat gold permanently bonded over a core of base metal. It is tarnish-resistant, safe for sensitive skin and unlike gold plate, it will not wear off. It is a great way to enjoy affordable gold jewellery.
