These pretty little Herkimer diamond earrings are dainty but glamorous. The glittering crystals are classically feminine, simple, and organic.
Herkimer diamonds are raw quartz crystals mined exclusively in Herkimer County, NY. Believed to be nearly 500 million years old, each stone has naturally formed with eighteen facets, six sides, and two points (double terminated). While they are not actually diamonds, they earned this nickname for their diamond-like shapes. The diverse crystals come with a number of curious inclusions, which add to their value and character. Each is uncut and unique.
