Sterling silver stud earrings with gray moonstones in a small 4mm size. Gray moonstone (AKA black moonstone) gives off lovely silvery shifts in appearance. These are neutral, subtle little gems, perfect for that elegant yet professional look. They have something of the fascination of pearls.

CHRISTMAS DELIVERY FOR THIS ITEM:

We attempt to have earrings in sterling silver pre-set and ready to ship quickly at this time of year. We should be able to ship you these in sterling silver on time if you follow the cutoff dates below; if we cannot fill your order in time we will contact you to arrange a substitution or cancellation/refund. You can also message us to ask if something can ship in time.

Gold settings are special order and take us a couple weeks to process. We do not recommend purchasing them as Christmas gifts after Dec. 9.

In the USA, order by:

Standard shipping (USPS First Class): Dec. 19
Priority Mail: Dec. 20
Fed-Ex: Dec. 21 (possibly the 22nd depending on time of order)

International Orders:

International standard shipping is unpredictable, and in our experience takes 1-8 weeks, with 1-3 weeks being the norm. We can't offer any firm cutoff for international shipping because of this. The only predictable method would be FedEx international express. The fees vary by country and speed, so please contact us with your location for a quote. It's hardly ever below $65-75.

These times are supplied by the USPS and FedEx. I will ship by their cutoff, but cannot promise you your package will arrive on time as I have no control over the postal service.

—————————————
Quality and Comfort
—————————————

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.

Sturdy, solid sterling silver clutches are made to grip the posts snugly, resulting in an earring that stays in your ear even if you lead an active lifestyle or sleep in your earrings. The posts are heavy-duty and slightly shorter than some, making them resistant to bending and comfortable to sleep in.

—————————————
Genuine Gemstones
—————————————

I use only genuine gemstones, verified in my in-house gem lab. Samples are also sent to an independent Graduate Gemologist for review. I buy carefully to ensure ethically sourced gems, usually supporting very small businesses like my own.

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?

I can also special order gemstones and diamonds if you don’t see what you are looking for.

AGTA: N - Natural

Gems are individual pieces of nature's art and have minor variation in pattern, color, size, and shape. The actual stones may vary slightly from the picture, because unlike synthetic gems few of them are exactly alike. I do promise you'll be happy with the gemstones you receive, and accept exchanges as well as notes with special requests like "Prefer darker green over lighter" which I will do my best to match within my stock of gems.
