Herkimer Diamond Solitaire Rings | Erica Weiner

$110

ericaweiner.com

Despite their diamond misnomer, Herkimers are six-sided, double-terminated quartz crystals and are relatively valueless. Unscrupulous jewelers during the Civil War often tried to pass them off as the more precious variety. We love the visual joke created when these severely flawed (yet impressively sized) stones masquerade as diamonds in our version of the classic "solitaire" engagement-ring setting. Every unique stone is set by hand; expect yours to have irregularities like cracks, dark spots, and milky-colored mineral impurities.
