Herkimer Arc Earrings
Herkimer Diamonds are rare pieces of double-terminated quartz crystal found only in and around Herkimer County, New York. These crystals are famed for their extreme clarity and attractive natural cuts.
Made with 14k gold fill or sterling silver wire and 2 Herkimer diamonds. They measure about 1.5" from the top of the wire to the bottom of the earring.
Gold filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors. As a matter of fact, anyone who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry.
The pair you order may vary from the one in the picture due to natural size and color variation in stones, but they will be similar in style and feel. The average pair measures between 6-8mm in height and 1.65-2.00 carats.
