Herkimer Diamond Huggie Hoops
12mm Gold filled or sterling silver huggie hoops adorned with hand selected A grade herkimer diamonds.
Herkimer diamonds are an extremely rare type of quartz. I traveled all the way to the world's largest gem show to hand-pick each of these Herkimers.
They aren't actually diamonds, but are naturally double terminated quartz, meaning they come to a point naturally at each end. Each stone has 18 faces, which gives it that "diamond" shape. They're found mainly in Herkimer County, NY.
What's even cooler, is that they're actually believed to be close to 500 MILLION years old.
