***Made to order. Please allow one week to create***The "Geisha" earrings are an exquisite combination of ceylon blue Sri Lankan sapphire rondelles, pink sapphire rondelles, and orange/padparadscha sapphire teardrops, all wrapped on vermeil headpins, and clustered together to form a beautiful bouquet of gemstones.

They sit on top of amazingly sparkly black spinel heart briolettes. Black spinel is very glossy, and the faceting on these stones enhances that feature very well.

They hang from lovely *vermeil (24kt gold over sterling silver, both precious metals) earwires that feature a sweet little rose. Measurements: 1 5/8" from the top of the earwire

The "Geisha" earrings are the absolute perfect, versatile accessory for every day wear, and of course, dressy enough for a special occasion.

Your "Geisha" earrings will ship USPS first class mail with delivery confirmation and insurance, and will be lovingly packaged in a keepsake box tied with ribbon.

Thank you for shopping with The Bijou Babe!

*What is vermeil? Vermeil must meet the FTC standard of 100 millionths of an inch (2 ½ microns) of fine gold layered over sterling silver. In order for a piece to be labeled legally as "vermeil", the item must not be less than 10 karat gold and have a substantial thickness, with a minimum thickness of 2 ½ microns.

*Is "vermeil" the same as "gold plate"? Absolutely not! In contrast, "gold plating" is a miniscule layer of solid gold applied to a brass base. The plating does not compose any measurable proportion of the product’s total weight, and is estimated to be 0.05% or less of the metal product. Gold plating will wear off rather quickly and expose the brass base product.

*How to care for vermeil jewelry: While vermeil jewelry may tarnish (the base is sterling silver, a precious metal that tarnishes), it is easily cleaned and will remain beautiful, if cared for properly. For starters, I recommend storing your artisan jewelry in the box provided to you when you purchased your jewelry, or you can store it in an airtight bag, such as a Ziploc. This is a trick I learned years ago while being employed at a hand crafted jewelry boutique, where I got my start! Exposure to the elements (including humidity, pollution, dust, etc) will dull ALL jewelry, so keep your treasures looking beautiful by wiping gently with a soft jeweler's cloth. Please, NO harsh chemicals, as it may not only damage the vermeil, but some gemstones, as well. In addition, perfume and hair spray should be applied PRIOR to putting on your jewelry (again, this goes for ALL jewelry, not just vermeil!). Finally, never, ever bathe or swim while wearing your jewelry.

Vermeil and gold filled metal are beautiful and affordable alternative to solid gold, and will retain its beauty, if cared for properly, but if solid gold is your preference, please contact me for a custom order and pricing!
