Sorry, this item sold. Have Specimental make something just for you, or try these other items:
The earrings in the photos are sold- the pictures are used to give you an idea of how your custom made earrings will appear. I have these diamonds in lighter and darker colours- unless you state your preference, I will choose the nicest of the bunch for you. This is a custom, made-to-order piece- my production time on these earrings is approximately 2 weeks. They ship using Air Mail Small Package, which does not have a tracking number from Vancouver, Canada, comes fully insured, and takes approximately 4-10 business days to arrive in the USA.
These little post earrings involve two well-matched diamond crystal clusters. The four-pronged post earrings began as pre-fabricated findings. In order to lose that pre-fab appearance, I used my rotary tool to form and shape the prongs and base. I was working to create a unique, organic shape which I feel best-suits the formation of the crystals. As in most of my work, I strive to find unique ways of forging and texturing the metal to best compliment the forms and textures I see in the stones.
After shaping the settings, I used my hammer to create a linear texture on the gold. This linear texture is base on one of my most popular ring textures- see it here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/61510743/raw-diamonds-and-steel-grey-pearl-in
The prongs were closed and then hammered around the naturally bumpy surface of the diamond crystals. After hammering the prongs closed, the earrings spent some time hardening up in my rock tumbler- this process hardens the metal, and makes the finish more durable.
The hand-done texture, combined with the unique formation of the crystals, ensures that your earrings will be absolutely unique from any other pair I make. The pair you see in the photos is sold. The next pair I make will be unique, but equally as lovely.
This pair has diamonds about 3.5mm across. These are my size B diamonds. Like all of my diamonds, these are conflict-free. The earrings come with silicone stoppers, which slip on the posts snugly and ensure that your new treasures won't fall out of your earlobes.
The final photo shows one of these B-sized earrings in my ear. My ear piercings are stretched out to a 10 gauge hole, so these little earrings do not sit well in them. In regular-sized piercings the earrings sit more flush to the ear- I have used the photos to give you an idea of scale.
I can also make a pair of earrings using this texture of 14k white gold. Darker diamond crystals are available, as well.Shipping- please read: These ship with Air Mail Small Package, unless otherwise requested by you.
