Orissa red garnet stud earrings with sterling silver posts and settings. Fine jewelry quality red garnets and recycled sterling silver for hypoallergenic beauty that will last. These faceted garnet stud earrings are a rich red. Orissa garnets are natural, untreated, and renowned for their spectacular color. These are not your typical dull, dark red garnets; they have a uniquely bright red color.

Please allow around a week (occasionally two) for shipping. Many of my earrings are made to order, and I end up with quite the workload sometimes!

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.

Little Gems are made with solid recycled sterling silver. They are also available in solid 14k yellow gold, palladium, and 14k white gold by special order; see easy upgrades here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/jetflair?section_id=6885904 I can also special order gemstones and diamonds if you don’t see what you are looking for.

I choose my stones with care. You will find no rhinestones, cubic zirconium, or lab grown stones in my work (unless you request them!), so you don’t need to scan the fine print for the “catch.” They are all real, selected knowledgably from trusted vendors and represented honestly in my product descriptions. I test stones in my own lab as well as sending samples out for independent verification.

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?
