Design

This dangle pair of earrings with a wire hoop style hinged snap that opens and closes under tension is style # 127 of our online design selection catalog. These gemstones dangle while sitting in open-backed baskets with hand-pulled wire prongs holding them, a secure design that allows a maximum of light to enter the gems. This style of snap clasp is built with Sterling silver only, no spring steel, truly a work of mechanical art. Please be aware that the spring part is a separate piece that can be removed, accidentally or on purpose for adjustment, only when the earrings are open. It is a good idea to open the clasp when over fabric just in case the spring were to fall out while open, then close them for safe storage.

Gemstones

These are a matched pair of White colorless Topaz pears accented by a pair of Tanzanite ovals. The Topaz is eye clean clarity, was mined in Cambodia and are 9 x 6.3 mm and weigh 2.97 carats together.

The blue purple Tanzanite gems are well matched 6 x 4mm hand faceted ovals with eye clean clarity that weigh .64 carats together. These naturally mined Tanzanian gems had traditional heat only.

Weights and Measures

These earrings weigh about 6.8 grams.

Total length is about 51 mm.

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 we love to travel and shop for gemstones, we do act as a buyer’s guide to the gem markets for any visitor that would like assistance. Often we 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.

Your gems or ours

Select gemstones from our site or send us yours for your own LEE jewelry piece. You may select the main stone plus the exact number of accent stones from right here. Please ask if you do not see exactly the gemstones you are looking for. In addition to our listed gemstones we have thousands more in stock that are ready yet are unlisted.

Please note that we are happy to work with your personal stones but do not have any insurance to protect them. Consequently, the stones will be at your risk only. When we use stones from our store for your custom order we back them for the purchase price. We do not guarantee or insure a stone that we did not sell. That said, it is not common that one breaks or is damaged in setting.

Metal choices

We are happy to make you a 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 ring.
