Newest additions to our Stud collection: Window Studs, a combination of faceted octagons of Peridot, Citrine, Garnet, Pale Iolite or Smoky Topaz, cut in the "emerald" style, set into Windows of Sterling, an open airy prong setting allowing light to enter the stones from all sides.
Size: Medium Window Studs are rectangular shaped, approximately 1/4" long by 1/4" at the widest point and will sit on the earlobe, held in place with Sterling backs. Our Silver is antiqued, naturally, and then hand-brushed giving them a matte finish.
Our Window Studs were inspired by the quarantine period of 2020, when it was important to stay in and peering out into the world took on new, enhanced meaning. The world carries on, and some views are better than others, but for awhile the view was all many had in which to connect abstractly with the their neighborhood and the world at large. Our specially cut Octagons represent the power and beauty of a translucent window view.
Gemstones: Available set with bright green Peridot, Smoky Topaz a warm translucent brown and Citrine, a bright honey gold, the birthstone for those born in November, rich red Garnet, and light Iolite, a lavender hued gem, named for the Greek word for violet.
All pieces will arrive in a velvet pouch and a T and Brie box. All are proudly made in a mother daughter Studio in the Hudson Valley region of New York.
