Herkimer Diamond Claw Stud Earrings
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. This ring comes in the hammered texture only.
