One Half Studs / Variscite
True to our design ethos, these versatile earrings honor nature’s creations. At center stage a spider web matrix creates intricate patterns throughout vivid turquoise. Dainty, yet bold, the Half Studs were designed with versatility in mind; wear as set, a solo stud, or mix and match with your favorite gemstones.
Each gemstone is unique in nature and will vary from the stone pictured.

This turquoise originates from the Number 8 Turquoise Mine in Nevada which was discovered in 1929 and mined up until 1976. Known for its golden spider web matrix and deep blue coloring, Number 8 is highly sought after and truly limited in its availability.
We purchase ear posts and ear nuts from a small business located in New York City’s diamond district. While much of the metal in their products is indeed recycled, they are unable to certify their materials as 100% recycled due to the prohibitively expensive certification process. While this is one link in our supply chain that needs improvement, we are also proud to support small local businesses and believe that our support will only help them achieve sustainable milestones as they grow.
