These Herkimer Diamond earrings are a great neutral. The nugget-shaped stones are approx. 7-8mm wide and hang from gold filled threaders. Herkimer diamonds are not really diamonds, but quartz. They are called diamonds due to their exceptional clarity and diamond-like appearance. The sparkly, clear gemstones are wonderful with the warm gold - simple and elegant.
Earrings are approx. 3 1/2" (93mm) long from the end of the threader posts to the bottom of the stones. Threader earrings may be worn at different lengths depending on your preference; these will hang approximately 2" from your ear, with the rest of the chain at the back.
Included is a pair of plastic clutches that you can thread onto the back of the earrings for added security.
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.
