Aquamarine Drop Earrings • March
Aquamarine Drop Earrings • birthstone for March
Aquamarine is a stone for stillness, calm, and quiet strength. These stones are a subtle light blue color.
Each pair of earrings is handmade using raw, natural crystals. Because of this, every pair will be unique. The lightweight crystals fall from gorgeous boxed chain, half an inch below your ear. So you get the dropped look, but with the simplicity of it falling barely below your ear. The highest quality materials are used, and they are suitable for everyday use.
The Process: Many 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, rose gold, or sterling silver. They are then attached to the ear threaders (that can be used in any regular piercing) made from highest quality solid sterling silver, gold filled, or rose gold filled. Long story short... a whole lot of time and love is put into these little beauties!
