Rough Gem Half-hoops
At Erica Weiner
Garnets are at their best, I think, in their unrefined state. This is how they look straight out of the earth, without facets, polishing, or any other fussy treatments. We've taken special care to try to match gems by hue, but expect yours to have chips, cracks, inclusions, dark spots, remnants of neighboring rock: all fascinating "flaws" that make them more lovable. Each precious stone is set by hand and attached to a curved hoop which is meant to be threaded through your earlobe front-to-back.
