Herkimer Diamond Dangle Hoop 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. These earrings pair perfectly with the other herkimer pieces in our shop!

MATERIAL (based on your preference):
♥ 22 gauge Sterling Silver / 14K Gold Filled / 14K Rose Gold Filled Wire for the hoop
♥ 20 gauge coordinating wire for the hand forged ear wire
♥ 5-7 mm Herkimer Diamond Quartz Crystal
♥ No two herkimer crystals are the same and some will have black natural inclusions
♥ Clear rubber stay put backing
♥ About 1.5" from the top of the ear wire to the bottom
♥ Each 22 gauge hoop is cut, filed, soldered and textured into a ring.
