Gold-Filled Herkimer Quartz Circle Gaia Earrings
A little sparkling double-terminated quartz crystal, left in its raw-edged form and naturally specked with black carbon inclusions, is stacked with golden pyrite and dangles from a pair of satin gold-vermeil and blackened silver circles. Above is suspended a teeny faceted black pyrite bead. French earring hooks fixed to the earrings are 14kt gold-filled and come with a pair of plastic earring backers for added protection.
Our Gaia jewelry line is inspired by raw forms, nature’s seemingly endless variety, and the thrill of “found” treasures combined with minimalist silhouettes.
DOUBLE TERMINATED QUARTZ CRYSTAL:
Wholeness + Alignment + Amplifier
Our double terminated quartz crystals are raw quartz crystals with two natural points on each end, and are a natural mix of smooth and rough cylindrical surface, with possibility of other bumps, dips, and points, as well as containing black carbon inclusions and possible air bubbles inside. They have a wonderful raw gemstone air and magical-looking quality to them!
Wear double terminated quartz for aligning your mind, body, spirit, to amplify energetic intention, and help receive divine energies, and to bring light into dark places within us. Use them to help bridge and align chakras, and boost intuition.
Double terminated quartz crystals align with the crown and third chakras.
If you want your jewelry to last, remember the old saying: “Jewelry should be the last thing you put on, and the first thing you remove”.
Keep it clean by keeping it away from chemicals, lotions, perfumes, excessive humidity, and protect from heavy, hard wearing activities such as sports, heavy work, or vigorous exercise. The main culprits that shorten the life of your jewelry are: never taking it off, wearing it while sleeping, wearing it in hot tubs and pools, and while playing sports. Store in an airtight container such as jewelry box or zip lock baggie while not wearing. When storing long term, make sure to clean and dry thoroughly before storing.
Clean as needed with a mild detergent and warm water, rinse well, and dry with a soft cloth.
14kt gold-filled jewelry is made with thick layer of gold (5% by weight) bonded to a high quality metal core of silver, brass, or copper. Although it isn’t solid gold, it essentially functions the same as any 14kt gold jewelry: it wont rub off or turn colors easily. It can be treated and cleaned as you would 14kt gold, and lasts 10-30 years of everyday wear with care. It can be cleaned with warm, soapy water, and a soft brush, then dried with a soft cloth.
The gold vermeil we use is sterling silver coated in an almost 24kt gold overlay, and is thicker than plated gold jewelry. Care should be taken when cleaning vermeil by not rubbing excessively, to protect the longevity of the gold surface. Clean with warm soapy water, or gold cleaner, and rinse well. Pat dry with soft cloth. Prevention of tarnish is best with vermeil jewelry, so be sure to remove before bed, sports, swimming, or applying perfumes or lotions. Store in an airtight container or jewelry box.
A NOTE ABOUT NATURAL GEMSTONES:
Individuality should be celebrated! Expect your natural gemstones to be perfectly imperfect: Unevenness in color or texture or finish is normal and expect to see some internal inclusions, dots, or flecks, that may not be immediately apparent from photos. We strive to provide an accurate description of our jewelry, but variation in color is also normal, and expect to see a slight difference in color from your computer monitor from the real thing.
