Crystal Drop Earrings
Crystal Drop Earrings • Quartz, April's birthstone & the stone used to represent Angels
Each pair of earrings is handmade using raw, natural crystals. The beauty of this is that every pair will turn out perfectly unique. Some of these crystals are very short and some are much longer, if you have a preference on size let me know in a note during checkout and we will do our best to accommodate your requests! This design features a very lightweight little raw Quartz point 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 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, rose gold, or sterling silver then attached to the gold filled, rose gold filled, or sterling silver ear wires. Long story short... a whole lot of time and love is put into these little beauties!
