These are classic studs with a pop of color reminiscent of lush green forests. We wanted to craft a pair of studs that were heavier and more secure than others so that you can enjoy these for a lifetime and pass them down as heirlooms. Unlike many mass-made styles, these tourmaline studs are made with heavy gold stock so they will never bend out of shape or feel flimsy. They have a threaded post in the back so that they won't come off unintentionally. Threaded earring posts are a bit thicker than the standard earring posts but we took comfort into consideration and made these with slightly thinner posts compared to the bulky, often painful posts we've seen around. We hand-pick our gems to match in color and then set them by hand to give the brightest sparkle. Each stone measures 5mm in diameter, a great size for stud earrings, and your pair will closely match the color of the studs in the photos but please note that some degree of variance is likely.
