Gold Garnet Earrings // January Birthstone


Gold Garnet Earrings // January Birthstone

Each pair of earrings is handmade using raw, natural crystals. The beauty of this is that every pair will turn out perfectly unique. This design features deep red Garnet crystals.

The stones are set on solid sterling silver earring posts plated in the thickest possible layer of 18k gold. All Little Sycamore jewelry is lead & nickel free.

The process: I search through many stones, hand-selecting the ones that I think will be prettiest for these earrings. I give attention to set each stone so that the prettiest side is facing outward, and carefully paint the backs and edges of the stones with conductive paint. Using an electric current, copper deposits onto the base of the stones for 12+ hours. This slow build up of metal creates a unique and organic looking setting that very securely holds the stones in place. The earrings are tumbled, hand-polished, and plated in the thickest possible plating of 18k gold. Long story short... a whole lot of time and love is put into these little beauties!

Frequently Asked Questions

Information & Care Instructions

Because every stone is unique, every piece of jewelry I create will be perfectly unique. Please expect variations in stone color & shape.

With time, copper darkens. I love the look of darkened copper so I apply a patina to my jewelry and seal it with a professional wax. However the color of copper does change over time, don't be surprised! Also, copper rings may react with some people's skin and make a green tint on the finger. This is harmless and easily washed off. It can also often by avoided by keeping the piece from getting wet and storing it in the jewelry box with the tarnish resistant tab that is included in every order.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Every order is packaged ready for gift giving!

Sizing details

The listed ring sizes in the drop down menu are sizes that are already made and ready to ship. If you don't see your size there, then you can select the "other ring size" option and I will make the ring in any size you would like. Just leave a note at checkout to tell me what size you would like it to be. Sometimes this "US custom size" is the only option if I don't currently have any rings made in that design.

If you order a size that doesn't fit you well, contact me and we will send you one that fits you better.

Refunds & Exchanges

I do full refunds or exchanges, but the buyer is responsible to pay for shipping costs. I will also repair products at any time, even when it was bought years ago. Contact me if you are dissatisfied in any way, because I promise to do what I can to solve any problems. I want to make sure you're happy about your purchase!

Processing Times

Listed ring size ship immediately. Custom ring sizes are made from scratch and take 5-10 business days. Plated pieces take longer. Message me for details if you want to know the processing time for a particular item.
Most earrings & necklaces are already made and ready to ship immediately, but check in with me if you need them by a particular date so I can tell you if that exact piece is in stock or made to order.
