What are Herkimer Diamonds?
Herkimer Diamonds are not actually diamonds, but a rare kind of quartz crystal found in Herkimer, New York. They naturally form in double terminated points, giving them a multi-faceted sparkle similar to that of a diamond. Believe it or not, these gemstones are close to five hundred million years old!

THE DIFFERENCE OF STERLING SILVER VS SILVER PLATED
You’ll notice this piece was made with sterling silver materials, instead of silver PLATED materials. Here’s the difference between the two:
STERLING SILVER is a minimum of 92.5% pure silver and the remaining 7.5% is copper. Pure silver is extremely soft, so the tiny bit amount of copper imbues strength, allowing us to work with it for jewelry making. It’s great for those with metal sensitives and it’s made to last. The stress of daily wear will eventually leave a coating of sweat, dirt causing your items to tarnish. With sterling silver, simply cleaning with a silver polishing wipe will bring the piece back to it’s original shine.
SILVER PLATED is a very thin coating of silver over a base metal (usually brass, copper or nickel). With consistent use, the silver plating will eventually wear off and reveal the base metal beneath. We want your piece to last for years to come, so we have selected all sterling silver metal components for this piece instead of silver plated options.
