poseidon variscite silver studs with 14k goldfill bezel
Measurements: Approximately 11mm diameter. Ear posts are made of 18 gauge silver wire.
Like mossy pebbles with earthen veins, these studs feature thick cabochons of Poseidon Variscite, set in a 14k goldfill bezel. The rest of the earring is constructed of recycled silver. Poseidon Variscite is a "cousin" of turquoise mined in Nevada. I purchase these stones directly from the family who mines and cuts them.
Goldfill is a layer of 14K gold bonded to a core of a base metal, such as copper and brass. Goldfill is much more durable than gold plating. It is susceptible to tarnish, but can be easily cleaned with a polishing cloth. One polishing cloth is included with your order.
Earrings come in a hand-sewn drawstring gift bag made out of repurposed fabrics or an eco-friendly gift box.
