Custom Birthstone Earrings | Personalized Family Jewelry
This listing is for a pair of earrings with multiple birthstones set in copper with the option to plate in rhodium or gold. Each pair of earrings will be wildly different as you can select up to six different birthstones and three different metal choices. The stones we use are raw so no two will be the same, each piece will be as unique as you, just like mother nature made em! Because this is a custom product and because of hygiene reasons all sales are final for this product.
The following birthstones are available: Garnet - January Amethyst - February Aquamarine - March HerkimerDiamond - April Emerald - May Moonstone - June Ruby - July Peridot - August Sapphire - September Opal - October Topaz - November Turquoise - December
Electroforming is the process of building up copper deposits on any object. The process can be very slow and it almost has a mind of its own. Sometimes there are striations in the copper, sometimes pits, sometimes there are little copper spheres. The results are always beautiful and unexpected making each piece entirely unique. Each piece had been cleaned up by hand and finished in the tumbler. The copper is absolutely raw... no added chemicals or sealants.
To maintain the finish as long as possible, avoid prolonged exposure to water as well as harsh chemicals. The copper will oxidize and darken over time giving it a warm deep finish. This is natural and every oxidation is unique to the person who wears it and the environment in which they live. The copper grows with you. You can bring back the original sheen by gently rubbing it with a soft polish cloth. Greening may happen. It doesn't happen to everyone. I leave the metals raw to avoid causing any reactions to additional chemicals. Rhodium-plate and gold-plate will not tarnish.
