These visually seductive drop earrings feature vibrant 5.80 ct. t.w. green peridot ovals with .15 ct. t.w. diamonds. Works splendidly as an August birthstone pair. Hinged post, sterling silver earrings.
STERLING SILVER: Also known as "Standard Silver," sterling silver is silver alloyed with other metals to increase the hardness and durability. Generally, sterling is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. Some sterling silver jewelry is plated with 14kt-18kt gold and referred to as "vermeil," or "gold over sterling."
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
HINGED: A bale with a hinge. The hinge allows the pendant to be placed on and taken off a chain easily and without sliding. Ideal for putting pendants on chains that have large clasps.
HINGED POST: An earring with a straight post insert and a hinged backing to hold it in place.
Stones per Earring:
Diamond: The hardest and most brilliant of all gemstones, a diamond can make the heart race with its pure and fiery spark. An ancient symbol of love, a diamond is the preferred gemstone for tokens of affection, such as rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Diamond is the birthstone for April.

PERIDOT: the birthstone of the month of August, peridot is only found in one color: green. Historians are now convinced that some, if not all, of the emeralds that Cleopatra was famous for wearing were not actually emeralds but deep green peridot stones from Egypt.

I love this setting/mounting of this earring and have several other pairs of this earring set with different stones in the pear shape. Â I have to say it was the peridot stone that drew me to these earrings, the stones won't disappoint!Â
