Please note:

The earrings shown in the photos are sold. Your pair will be made to order- they take about 2 weeks to make. As raw diamonds are organic, unique formations, your pair will differ somewhat from the ones shown here, but will be every bit as lovely.

These little post earrings involve two well-matched diamond crystal clusters. The four-pronged post earrings began as pre-fabricated findings. In order to lose that pre-fab appearance, I used my rotary tool to form and shape the prongs and base. I was working to create a unique, organic shape which I feel best-suits the formation of the crystals. As in most of my work, I strive to find unique ways of forging and texturing the metal to best compliment the forms and textures I see in the stones.

After shaping the settings, I used my pin tool to create a glittering, pinbrushed texture. This texture is one of the finishes that people most often ask for when they buy my rings.

The prongs were closed and then hammered around the naturally bumpy surface of the diamond crystals. After hammering the prongs closed, the earrings spent some time hardening up in my rock tumbler- this process hardens the metal, and makes the finish more durable.

The hand-done texture, combined with the unique formation of the crystals, ensures that your earrings will be absolutely unique from any other pair I make. Presently, the pair you see in the photos is available in this listing. The next pair I make will be unique, but equally as lovely.

This pair has dark gray diamonds that are about 3.5mm across. These are my size B diamonds. Like all of my diamonds, these are conflict-free. The earrings come with silicone stoppers, which slip on the posts snugly and ensure that your new treasures won't fall out of your earlobes. This pair has posts that are also built for screw-on backs, should you wish to use your own. I can also make these with regular, non-screw posts- just ask.

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.

As well, I can make a pair of earrings using this texture in 14k white gold. Lighter diamond crystals are available, as well. Check my Earring section for 18k yellow gold earrings.

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.

Frequently asked questions about Specimental

I am always open to hearing your design ideas. Please contact me through the shop, or at treloar@telus.net to discuss design possibilities.
If you are unsure of your ring size, the best way to be sized accurately is by visiting two commercial jewelers. Please ensure they size you using their thin sizing tools- not the wide band sizing tools, nor by having you try on rings from their display.

If any questions arise around being properly sized, I am always happy to help- contact me through the shop, or at treloar@telus.net
All of my pieces come ready to present as gifts, in attractive foil stamped jewelry boxes, enclosed in a lovely Chinese faux silk gift bag.

If the person for whom you are purchasing the piece shares your address, please be aware of the following: International export law dictates that the detailed contents of packages, and their value, be clearly marked on the outside of the package. This means that if they see the package before you do, they can easily tell what they are being gifted with.

I am happy to ship to your workplace, a friend, or a relative, when secrecy is necessary. The very best option is to have your package held for you at your closest Fed Ex store- if you are unsure of its location, I'm happy to help.
At this time, I do not sell wholesale, nor do I place my pieces on commission.
My gold is all recycled- the metal plant I purchase it from has been in business for over 100 years. They smelt their metals to the highest environmental standards, to cause the least impact on the environment. They do not deal with newly mined metals, as these metals cause much greater destruction to the environment.

There is no visible difference between recycled metals and newly-mined metals. There is also no difference as far as the karat of the metals go- 18k recycled gold is exactly the same in constitution as 18k newly mined gold. The vast majority of my clients prefer their metals recycled, as environmental impact is of concern when choosing the perfect piece of jewelry.
No, I cannot. I am not set up to smelt gold in the studio, so am not able to melt down your old gold pieces for you.
I can use your heirloom stones in a new design. The stones must be pulled from their settings and checked for stability by a professional jeweler prior to shipping them to me.
My current production times are listed in my shop announcement. If you need something more quickly, please get in touch via the shop, or at treloar@telus.net

Depending upon my work and family schedule, I am happy to accommodate your rush orders. There is no additional charge for a rush order. However, please do get in touch prior to ordering to discuss your deadline with me.
Yes! All of my pieces are completely hand fabricated in the studio by me, from raw materials. I am able to create any of my designs with any stone, in any composition. In short, you can have your ring absolutely any way you like it. Contact me through the shop, or via treloar@telus.net to get the discussion around your perfect piece of jewelry started.
