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 necklace comes in the smooth texture only.

♥ Each 18 gauge ring is created out of two hand cut pieces of wire. They are each soldered and then formed into a perfect circle.
♥ A prong setting is then created and fused to the small circle.
♥ The circles are then soldered together to form the pendant. A jump ring is then soldered together to hold the pendant.

♥ The pendant is tumbled one last time and then attached to coordinating precious metal materials.
♥ Tumbling polishes, clears away any debris/oxidation and hardens the metal.
