Black Tourmaline Drop Earrings // October's Birthstone
Each pair of earrings is handmade using raw, natural crystals. The beauty of this is that every pair will turn out perfectly unique. This design features a chunky Black Tourmaline stone falling 1.5 inches below your ear. The detail is beautiful in these, with chain also falling from the back of your ear, with a thin rod at the end of it. The stones are more of a statement but without being too heavy, so you'll be able to rock these rocks all day long! And you guys, I'm obsessed with these. They make any outfit look so cute and they're the perfect date night accessory to a night feel a little bit more special and make you feel so put together.
The process: The stones are searched through, hand-selecting the ones that will be prettiest for these earrings. Attention is given to make sure that the prettiest side is facing outward, the setting is carefully shaped and then painted with conductive paint. Using an electric current, copper deposits onto the setting for 12+ hours. This slow build up of metal creates a unique and organic looking setting that very securely holds the stones in place. The earrings are tumbled, hand-polished, and plated in the thickest possible plating of 18k gold, then attached to the gold filled ear wires. Long story short... a whole lot of time and love is put into these little beauties!
