Great for everyday wear, these filigree stud earrings feature lovely 6 mm rose cut garnet cabochons, hand set in antiqued sterling silver gallery wire bezels. These gallery wire bezels are firmly soldered to sterling posts and tumble polished for hours to increase durability. The posts on these earrings are 13 mm (.5 inches) long, and sterling silver clutch backs are included with your purchase.
Garnet, the distinctive January birthstone, takes its name from Old English, when it was named for the pomegranate that the stone resembles in color.
Much of the sterling silver that is shown in my store has been antiqued and then re-polished in order to better show the detail, but can also be created with a bright, mirror finish if you prefer. Please let me know if you have a question about these lovely earrings!
