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 sterling silver Herkimer-diamond earrings from one of my favorite Victorian stick pins and added an antique style sterling earwire so they can dangle freely to catch the light. Rustic-glam and light weight enough for everyday wear, perfect for dressing up or down. They're approximately 1" from top curve of wire to bottom of drop, and about 1/2" east to west. We use only AAA grade herkimers with excellent clarity and sparkle and take care to match the size and shape of the crystals for each pair. 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 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. Note: the photo is a sample image. Your herkimers may be slightly different with subtle variation in size and shape.
