Did you know that rock crystal is cooler to the touch than glass? Place one of these earrings next to your cheek and you experience that phenomenon for yourself.
Faceted icy cushion cut rock crystals have been set into rose gold vermeil (over sterling silver) mountings with open work galleries.
Each rock crystal is over 7 carats or 15 mm by 12 mm in proportion. Translated into what a diamond would look like, that's about 9 carats each!
Mid-century and Russian in origin, these sport shepherd's hook ear wires and a fold up or down safety catch. They look similar to paste, but rock crystals are in the same mineral family as amethysts, citrines and smoky quartz.
This is part of a set with a ring and earrings. Inquire if still available or search for rock crystal.
