Rose Quartz Stud Earrings // the crystal for all forms of love
Rose Quartz is the stone for unconditional love. Rose Quartz represents all forms of love: friendship, self love, romanic love, and familial love. These earrings can represent someone who love you unconditionally, a reminder to work on self love practices, or it can be a gift to your daughter or friend to tell her that you love her.
Each pair of earrings is handmade using raw, natural crystals. The beauty of this is that every pair will turn out perfectly unique. Each pair has a unique shape and they often have unique inclusions inside of the crystals (sometimes dark black, brown specks or yellowish areas inside fo the stone). The inclusions make it so that they look natural and real and I adore it! These dark pink Rose Quartz crystals are set on solid sterling silver earring posts and the metal surrounding the stone is solid sterling silver also. The highest quality materials were used to make these.
The process: So many stones are searched through, hand-selecting the ones that will be prettiest for these earrings. Each stone is set with the prettiest side facing outward. The back and edges of the stones are carefully painted with conductive paint. Using an electric current, pure copper deposits onto the base of the stones for 12+ hours, and I check and rotate things every few hours to keep things depositing evenly. 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 the setting around the stones is plated in the thickest possible plating of sterling silver.. Long story short... a whole lot of time and love is put into these little beauties!
