Herkimer Diamond Studs
Melissa Joy Manning
Herkimer “diamonds” are approximately 7mm wide and 5mm thick
Herkimer “diamond” quartz and 14k gold
Herkimer diamonds are quartz crystals that are double-terminated, meaning that they have two naturally-formed faceted ends. Because of this and their exceptional clarity, they’re called “diamonds.” They’re named after Herkimer County, New York, where they are commonly found.
Each crystal is set in hand-formed 14k gold prongs.
These stones are one-of-a-kind, so variations in size and shape will occur.
Made in California.
