Blue Lapis Lazuli Post Earrings Pair Ladies Studs 925 Sterling Silver Design 609
This exact pair of earrings is confirmed as in stock and ready for immediate shipping.
This style is a ladies post style pair of stud earrings, design # 609 of our online design selection catalog. This sturdy pair of earrings is a post style with removable backs, a classic stud design. The baskets are slotted for better light entrance into the gems and four hand-pulled wire prongs secure each stone. The post are notched to help the backs stay put and the amount of tension can easily be adjusted without tools simply by squeezing the curled holder on the backs for tightening or by separating them a little to loosen the grip of the backs on the post. The faces of the backs are round and smooth.
The gemstones are bright blue Lapis Lazuli with Pyrite flecks mined from the ground in Pakistan. These gems are untreated, opaque, 9 mm cabochon rounds that weigh 5.57 total carat.
We started this project by melting down fine silver and pure copper to create an ingot of 93% silver alloy. Consequently our alloys are a little on the rich side of .925 Sterling. Copper alone is the remaining 7%. We do not add base metal in our alloy so there is less chance for any allergic reaction.
The weight of this well built, handcrafted pair is about 5.1 grams.
You may custom order a pair of earrings in this design # 609 with another pair of gemstones and it will be ready to ship in about 4 weeks. The gem shape can be most any shape such as round, princess, cushion, baguette, rectangle, oval, trillion, hexagon or emerald cut. You may select the pair from our complete inventory on the main website then message us for a quote. Once we know your desires we will create the custom order listing for you to purchase here on this site.
We are happy to make your custom piece of jewelry with Sterling 925 silver or 18K yellow gold. You may also request that we use 999 silver or 965 yellow gold. Furthermore, you may decide on a combination of our metals such as a gold bezel in a silver piece.
All of our jewelry is made with the old fashioned hand hammered technique. We start by alloying an ingot then proceed with hammering, rolling, filing, sawing, soldering, drilling, sanding and polishing. We do not sell castings and never use glue in our heirloom quality jewelry.
