These earrings are made from Sterling Silver and are hand formed and soldered. The stones are set in a high U-shaped prong setting to allow maximum light through the stones from either side. The stones are faceted Rhodolite Garnets with a beautiful crimson color and flash of violet through them. These stones measure 10mm x 8mm and are very visible when worn. The prongs are flat on top and polished so that they offer maximum contrast against the dark Garnet stones. The earring measure about an inch in length.
