Big Swiss blue topaz studs in sterling silver. These sparkly bright blue gems are 8mm round, large enough to make quite a statement without being "costume jewelry" large. Tons of brilliant color in these!

Like all Swiss blue topaz on the market, these gems have been irradiated to bring out the stunning color. This treatment is stable and permanent.

After I got my ears pierced, I went on a buying spree and purchased a ton of cute sparkly little post earrings. About six years later, only two pairs remain. What happened to all the others? They fell apart, peeled, turned green, and suffered other unattractive fates. Glues, plated metals, fake crystal “stones,” cheap enamels….they all degrade sooner rather than later.

Now that I make my own jewelry, I have decided to make stud earrings that are beautiful, high quality, and will stand the test of time. They will cost a little more, but they’ll outlast 10 pairs of cheapies.

There is absolutely no glue or epoxy used in these; soldered construction and stones set using traditional metalsmithing techniques equal lasting durability. These are sturdy prong settings, not flimsy “snap-in” settings which hold the stones in prongs so thin you can literally bend them with your fingernail.

Little Gems are made with solid sterling silver. They are also available in solid 14k yellow gold and 14k white gold by special order. Just contact me for a quote; I can also special order many gemstones if you don’t see what you are looking for.

Finally, I choose my stones with care. You will find no rhinestones, cubic zirconium, or lab grown stones in my work (unless you request them!), so you don’t need to scan the fine print for the “catch.” They are all real, selected knowledgably from trusted vendors and represented honestly in my product descriptions.

Part of the thrill of a beautiful piece of jewelry is looking at the gem and marveling at the beauty produced by nature. Why waste your money on imitation gemstones when you can enjoy the beauty of the real thing?
