This listing is for one pair of earrings. Hand selected quartz points have been set on a copper hoop with the option of plating in gold or rhodium. We offer three different sizes. Each earring post and ear nut is sterling silver.

We offer three different finishes: copper, silver-plated, and gold-plated.
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. Gold-plate will not tarnish. The fine silver plate can tarnish, but with care the finish should last a long time.
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.
Each stone is unique, just like you are. And your earrings will come in a little box with the stone's properties included, ready to be given as a gift as well! Thank you for understanding all earring sales are final for reasons of hygiene and safety.
