Herkimer Diamond Stud Earrings | Peter James Jewelry
Designers Lynette and Erika are a mother/daughter team, their co-designing brings together their different histories and training, combining to create pieces that are both timeless and elegant while also pushing the envelope when it comes to dramatic flair and style. The hand forged pieces transform wire and sheet metals into wearable works of art.
Lynette is a California native who knew from the age of 14 that her life’s passion was jewelry design. Erika, her daughter, has a background in fine art with a BFA in sculpture and painting from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA.
Herkimer Diamonds are double terminated quartz crystals of exceptional clarity discovered within exposed outcrops of dolostone in and around Herkimer County, New York and the Mohawk River Valley.
Each diamond is unique in shape and cut. Can be worn in a casual setting or dressed up for a cocktail party. Lightweight and eye-catching.
