Chrysoprase is a prized Australian gemstone which looks a great deal like high end jade. Demand has been outstripping supply since the Asian market discovered its similarity to jade, and prices have skyrocketed because of the premium those buyers are willing to pay. We're offering four grades as affordably as we can. Grade C is our most affordable chrysoprase option; they are a mintier green, less saturated, and less translucent than the higher grades.
Our gems are ethically sourced with care and knowledge. They are real, come from small businesses, and support small miners and families around the globe.
Gems are individual pieces of nature's art and have minor variation in pattern, color, size, and shape. Unlike synthetic gems, few are exactly alike.

Reclaimed Precious Metal Settings
Sterling silver serrated or gold crown settings (14k white, yellow, or rose gold). Solid (not plated) and made in the USA. See crown setting examples in the product image gallery. Sterling silver serrated settings have the post in the center; gold crown settings have the post near the top of the earring. Silver settings have a closed back, while gold settings have an open back. Transparent gems may perform better in closed-back silver settings.
Rather than support destructive mining practices, we use reclaimed precious metals. They are melted down and refined to produce settings identical in quality and purity to newly mined metals without the environmental and human impact.
These are handmade to order in my small US studio, and on occasion we need to special order gems and/or metals to complete your order. Depending on stock on hand and current work load, it may take 1-4 weeks to ship your order. The average is 1-2 weeks.
