Gold Tear Drop Earrings with Faceted Crystal Quartz - A wavy Gold Filled (GF) tear drop has a striking, faceted Crystal Quartz suspended within. These are especially beautiful when the facets hit lights and sunshine, as these drop earrings have amazing movement! The drops are suspended by GF Leverback hooks, providing a secure closure.  All metals in these earrings are Gold Filled.

Please be sure to zoom in on the images to see the details of these gemstones up close.

The earrings measure 1 1/2" in length.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Gold Filled vs. Gold Plated:  Not the same!  The amount of gold used in gold plated (GP) jewelry is less than .05%.  The gold is electro-plated to the base metal alloy (usually jeweler's brass). One tiny scratch on plated metal can expose the base metal.  The amount of gold used in Gold Filled (GF) jewelry is 100% more than Gold Plated - 5%.  The base metal alloy is literally sandwiched between two layers of gold. As long as one takes care of their GF jewelry, it can last a lifetime. To clean, without scratching it, use an untreated cloth or mild soapy water. Do not scrub the piece.
