Labradorite cabochon studs. 14k gold stud earrings (crown earrings) or sterling silver studs (bezel set earrings) with genuine Labradorite. Choose low profile serrated sterling silver or crown earrings in 14k white gold, 14k rose gold, or 14k yellow gold. Hand set in our rural Oregon studio using the finest sustainable reclaimed precious metals and ethically sourced gems.

Labradorite is a mineral relative of moonstone (the feldspars), and displays a similar directional flash of color in a base of brownish gray. These 6mm gems have iridescent flashes of color in the blue-green-teal range; each stone is an individual but I only use the ones with nice strong "flash".

Eskimo lore holds that the Northern Lights were once trapped in the rocks off the coast of Labrador, but were set free into the air by one of their ancestors - some of the lights, however, remained trapped in the stone which we now call Labradorite.

What makes this gemstone special is the directional flashes of brilliant color, similar to moonstone but more intense. In some lighting and at some angles the flash cannot be seen, while in others it lights up like a spotlight. If you love moonstone, opal, sunstone, or any other gem with internal fire you will adore these.

We are a woman owned and operated US small business, and we believe fair trade principles should apply to Americans too. We're trying first and foremost to make the mortgage payment, but our goal is to build a business that benefits employees with good jobs, buys from other quality small businesses, and refuses to join the race to the bottom.

If you want radiant, enduring quality in fine jewelry that will remain at your side through the journey of life, you'll love our comfortable, durable gemstone studs. Cabochon gemstones are beautiful and the settings are low profile; they are perfect if you want to sleep in your earrings as they are less "poky" than faceted studs. Post earrings are great for everyday wear and multiple piercings.

SETTINGS:
Native American hand crafted sterling silver serrated settings, or US made gold crown settings (14k white, yellow, or rose gold). Solid (not plated) and made with sustainable US reclaimed/recycled precious metals.

See crown setting examples in the 3rd product image. Sterling silver serrated settings have the post in the center; gold crown settings have the post near the top of the earring. Silver settings have a closed back, while gold settings have an open back. Transparent gems may perform better in closed-back silver settings.

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.

Frequently asked questions about jetflair

Our sterling silver, platinum, and yellow gold alloys do not contain any nickel. Our white gold, however, does contain nickel and should be avoided by those with allergies.
We only work with precious metals; gold, platinum, palladium, and silver. Precious metals are formed into jewelry using casting and brazing techniques, while nontraditional metals are machined. We are not set up to do machining.
If you don't see the size you want in the gem you're looking for, drop us a line! We may well be able to order it for you :)
Absolutely! We're experts at suggesting different metal, stone, and design choices to bring a ring into the range of your budget. We can often shave hundreds or even thousands off the price of a ring by making certain changes, so don't hesitate to get in touch!
We usually can! We're happy to give you a quote. A word of warning; our custom and semi-custom rings have high fixed costs that are unfortunately not tied to raw materials cost, so the price may not drop as much as you'd hope.

We have found in most cases people are prone to save up a bit and get a ring in gold, rather than pay hundreds for a silver ring. That said, we have sold a number of beautiful custom silver rings to very happy clients!
All of our listings are for two earrings by default; we'd never pull a deceptive trick like only selling you one earring! No bamboozle.

When we offer singles for sale, that is noted prominently in the item title and the first part of the description so that you can't miss it.
