This style is a ladies post style pair of stud earrings, design # 607 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 mounted with full bezels to 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.
These are Spessartite Garnets from Madagascar, natural with no treatment. They are both a well saturated orange color similar to Fanta soda color.

Garnet is the birthstone for January.
We started this project by melting down fine silver and pure copper to create an ingot of 93% silver alloy. Consequentially 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.

Thailand’s Gem Markets
Being a gemologist in Thailand makes providing you with the right gemstones a snap. Furthermore, the gem markets here are nothing short of amazing! We shop in four different gem districts across the country and the variety is world class. Additionally, a precision gem cutter is working for our operation. Of course, we also source fine gemstone rough with our worldwide network of contacts in the mining business.
Since I love to travel and shop for gemstones, I do act as a buyer’s guide to the gem markets for any visitor that would like assistance. Often I can meet you at a gem market or even pick you up at the airport to get our adventure started.
Custom cut gemstones
An essential part of our service is custom gemstone cutting. You may supply rough stones for us to have precision faceted or cabbed into the shapes that you desire. In addition, many gemstones that are already native cut will be improved in clarity and light return by a new precision cut.
Custom orders on gemstone cutting are normally ready in just two to three weeks. Message me with details of your gemstone requirements. I will provide the address along with special instructions on shipping stones to us.
