Herkimer Diamonds are double terminated quartz that are found in Herkimer, NY as well as other places in the US. Double terminated means that the quartz crystal comes to a point at each end. Each herkimer diamond has 18 facets which helps to create a beautiful luster. Since each herkimer diamond is found naturally no two will ever be the same which allows for a truly unique piece.

♥ Each prong setting is created from 20 gauge wire in 7 steps and tumbled for durability for 4+ hours.
♥ Once the pendant has gone through its first tumble, the Herkimer Diamond is then added and the prong setting is closed. Don't worry,this little beauty isn't going anywhere!
