This is one of a new group that I have been experimenting with. This ear cuff hangs lower than a typical ear cuff as the initial attach point (where the ear cuff hugs the ear is higher than the shield itself due to its inverted gothic arch design; kind of like a fancy 'U' shape. The framing wire in this piece is made from 14kt Gold which is then filled with Fine Silver Filigree wire which I mill myself to insure the correct proportions to the framing wire so that it sits a little lower than the gold.
The stone is a blue Diamond briolette, measuring 5 x 3 mm in size, and has a blue green coloring to it. The diamond is wire-wrapped using 14kt White Gold wire. All the Diamonds that I use in my designs are are conflict free.
This cuff is a little larger than a typical cuff which tend to be simple circles that hug the cartilage of the ear. I wanted this to dress up the ear as well as show off the diamond. This is truly a distinctive piece and a really great way to have that additional ear jewelry without a secondary piercing.
This is definitely a one of a kind, distinctive piece that would make a great gift for the Holiday.s
