This sparkly necklace holds a row of genuine natural Herkimer Diamond crystals in the middle of a slender sterling silver chain. Herkimer Diamonds are quartz crystals that literally come out of the ground looking like they're already faceted with the 18 naturally formed sides you see here! This quartz formed millions of years ago in what used to be a shallow sea bed but is now the middle of New York state. Locals usually go hunting for these stones along river beds after the spring thaw. Sometimes you find crystals with little black specks inside (called Anthraxolite) which is actually the fossilized bits of plant life that grew inside the crystals back when they were forming underwater.

You will receive the exact necklace you see here. The section of stones in the middle of the necklace measures a little over 2 inches across and the whole necklace is 17.3 inches long including the lobster clasp. The stones are stationary in the middle, they do not move along the necklace.

Photos are taken close up and this piece cannot fit every person the same as it fits the mannequin so please always use measurements to determine size.

This design was inspired by the last two TV episodes of Sex in the City, where Carrie was given a gorgeous rough-faceted Diamond and Platinum necklace. After I saw the TV finale I did a little research and learned the original was made for the show at SJP's direct personal request to the designer, it held 22.5 carats of diamonds on a platinum chain and its reported value was $55,000..... but don't worry they used a "stunt double" when filming the scene where it gets broken!

Frequently asked questions about kerrihale

To determine size and personal fit please be sure to use the measurements provided, and definitely feel welcome to contact me if you have any questions at all. Please note, necklaces cannot fit every person the same as the mannequin because we are all different sized people.
If you would like a gift box for your purchase please request one in the Notes To Seller box during checkout. I sometimes include one anyway, but if you definitely want one [or don't want one] please specify your preference at checkout.
Fees such as import duties, taxes, VAT, GST, etc, are not included in the item price. My business is not registered to collect VAT/GST/other taxes for foreign countries. Any import fees or taxes are your responsibility between you and your country. I have no knowledge of, nor control over these fees.
Handmade jewelry is different from mass-produced jewelry. Typically stones in handmade jewelry are not sealed, treated or stabilized - such as they may be with mass-produced jewelry. Handmade jewelry is more sensitive to environmental factors such as lotion, perfume, sweat, oil, beauty products, makeup, soap, chemicals, etc. These products can cause discoloration due to the natural state of the stones. Porous stones such as Opal, Pearl and Turquoises can be especially sensitive. This is the nature of natural stones and handmade jewelry; it's not a defect. Appropriate expectations and consideration should be practiced. With proper care and consideration handmade jewelry will last for many years to come.
If there is a defect in workmanship, the defect will be corrected within two weeks of purchase. Outside of that time frame, damages are a reflection of an environmental influence rather than a defect in workmanship. Damages may be reparable; you may contact me for a quote on labor and materials.
Non-custom items which are in new unworn condition may be returned for a refund of the item price if received back in my hands within 10 days from the delivery date. Insuring your return package is recommended because items not received back in original condition will not be refunded. Shipping cost is not reimbursed. For information on custom item returns, see the "custom design" section below. Sale items are not returnable.
[Damage] These rules are from the USPS; failure to comply can result in the denial of the claim: Photographs may be required. All packaging material and damaged goods must be kept in the original form as received. Packaging and damaged goods should not be disposed of or released to the shipping carrier before a claim is completed. Claims require a claim statement/affidavit to be signed by the buyer.

[Non-receipt] Per USPS regulations: claims for non-receipt may be reported between 21-90 days after the ship date for domestic, or between 45-58 days after the ship date for international. Claims require a claim statement/affidavit to be signed by the buyer attesting to non-receipt. Failure to comply can result in the denial of the claim.
I love working with customers to create something special for weddings or gifts or for yourself! I will create the best possible jewelry to fit within your budget. I suggest checking my shop and sold items for inspiration if you haven't already decided on your design. Some designs require special ordering materials which can take several weeks to arrive. I will work quickly and efficiently for you but some things (eg: transit times or supplier error) are beyond my control; please budget accordingly for time. Custom orders begin with a 50% nonrefundable deposit before work begins and the balance is due upon completion.
