These earrings can still make it to you in time for Christmas gift giving. However, they will need a shipping upgrade to Expedited shipping from Canada- this costs $25, not the $7.50 Air Mail Small Package shipping included in this listing. Please get in touch if you would like to have a custom listing with the Expedited shipping made for you.
The actual pair of earrings in the photo has been sold. Your pair will be made from diamonds from the same parcel of stones, and will be close in appearance to the ones you see here. As each stone is a unique specimen, your earrings will be slightly different, but every bit as lovely. This is a custom, made-to-order piece- my production time on these earrings is approximately 2 weeks. They ship using Air Mail Small Package, which does not have a tracking number from Vancouver, Canada, comes fully insured, and takes approximately 4-10 business days to arrive in the USA.
These little post earrings are made from a nicely-matched set of rough diamonds. My diamonds are all conflict free. These are diamonds in their crystal cluster form- diamonds come in numerous formations. The set you see here are white, and are around the 3-4mm across range. These are my Size B diamonds.
The final photo shows one of these B-sized earrings in my ear. My ear piercings are stretched out to a 10 gauge hole, so these little earrings do not sit well in them. In regular-sized piercings the earrings sit more flush to the ear- I have used the photos to give you an idea of scale.
The diamonds are set in 14k yellow gold pronged posts. I can also create a pair of these using 14k white gold, at the same cost- see this listing for the white gold version: http://www.etsy.com/listing/84035054/rough-diamonds-in-14k-white-gold
If you prefer your rough diamonds on the more silver end of the spectrum, I can also make a pair using silver-gray stones.
I can also create a pair of these earings using larger stones (around 5mm)- these are $220 a set, in either white or yellow gold. Smaller diamonds (1.5-2mm) set in gold are available in the Earrings section of my shop.
The backings on these earrings are very snug-fitting silicone. They will ensure that your latest treasures stay in your earlobes, where they belong.
Shipping- please read: These ship with Air Mail Small Package, unless otherwise requested by you. This method has no tracking number, and a 4-10 business day (estimated, not guaranteed) travel time from Canada to the USA. If you would like a tracking number, or a faster shipping method (anywhere from three business days to overnight), please get in touch for an estimate prior to purchasing.
