(You save )

These magnificent vivid red gemstones are sunstones, which were mined in Oregon. Oregon sunstones are gaining attention as a natural and untreated product of the United States. They come in a variety of colors, of which the deep reds and greens are the most in demand. These earrings feature truly unique matching crimson sunstones, and are surrounded by lavish diamonds. To add even more sparkle, the hoops feature brilliant round diamonds both inside and out.  The dangling stones move with the wearer; catching light and shimmering beautifully. These earrings are also available in 18 kt yellow gold.

GORDON'S DESIGN NOTES: "I like the look of large hoop earrings, particularly those with diamonds on both the outside and the inside, creating sparkle from many angles. The hold-up for me was finding the right colored stones to feature. Finally, I found these rare, vivid red sunstones mined in the state of Oregon. The color was exactly what I was looking for to finish these earrings. I was fortunate to be able to obtain four matching stones so I decided to make earring sets in both white and yellow gold."

As with all pierced earrings, keep the earring findings clean and free of dirt and oil build-up. Wash your hands before putting on or removing pierced earrings to minimize the potential for infection.
Care Continued:
When dressing, fine jewelry should always be the last item put on and the first item taken off to minimize the gemstones coming into contact with perfume, lotions, hair products, etc.
Care Continued:
Protect your jewelry from impact against hard surfaces and avoid contact with abrasives. All gemstones, including diamonds, can chip, scratch, or abrade under the right circumstances.
Care Specifics:
To minimize the potential for earring loss, regularly inspect the closure findings for damage and wear. If in doubt, ask a jewelry professional to inspect the earrings.
Care Specifics Continued:
Avoid ultrasonic and steam cleaning, particularly the Sunstones.
Care Specifics Continued:
With wear, rhodium plating can thin to the point where a yellowish tinge may show through. Periodic re-coating with rhodium will revive the original bright white color. Re-plating does not damage the gemstones.
The best method for cleaning all your jewelry is to soak each item in a mixture of lukewarm water and gentle dish washing liquid followed by a very light cleaning with a soft child’s toothbrush.
Additional Cleaning Instructions:
Place the item(s) in a fine mesh strainer and rinse to remove the soap. Gently place each item on a lintfree cloth and softly pat them dry. See the Care and Cleaning Section of the Website for a more detailed explanation.
