A bird claw holding a gem, or anything else really, was a favorite theme in the 19th century given the Victorian fascination with the natural world. We cast the mounting for these Herkimer-diamond earrings in 10k recycled gold from one of my favorite Victorian stick pins, and added a 10k antique style earwire so they can dangle freely to catch the light. Rustic-glam lightweight enough for every day wear; perfect for dressing up or down. Approximately 1" from top curve of wire to bottom of drop and about 1/2" east to west. I like them because they sparkle like mad. Their double termination lends itself well to being clasped by the claw and the light catches them with any subtle movement to flash on the ear just like their namesake. Herkimers are an unusual type of crystal quartz discovered in the Mohawk River Valley of NY state in the late 18th century. They are double terminated, meaning their ends are formed as two peaks, they aren't cut that way from a crystal formation. In fact, they form with little or no contact to another rock. For that reason they've been attributed with a great deal of mystical significance. I test drive ( so to speak) our original designs before I put them in the shop and I can honestly say these have become my go-to earrings for every occasion. They look wonderful with anything else I put on and the silvery gleam of the crystal makes them perfect to wear with white metal as well as yellow gold jewelry. Note: the photo is a sample image. Your herkimers may be slightly different with subtle variations in size and shape.
