Mandarin Drops!

Vibrant orange Mandarin Garnets set with sparkling diamonds in hand crafted earrings.  The pear-shape Garnets are set in 18kt yellow gold bezels.  Above, the small brilliant diamonds are bezel-set in platinum.  We call these earrings "Mandarin Drops"  because they look like a drop of sunshine hanging from a sparkling drop of water.

The bezels settings holding the Mandarin Garnets and diamonds are beautifully hand crafted and polished.  The thick walls of the settings highlight the shape of the gemstones and provide a sturdy framework for the earrings.  Each earring has a straight post and is secured to the ear with a friction back.
