Gemstone Stud Earrings

These gemstone stud earrings have become quite popular. An assortment of these gemstone stud earrings is available at the local designer clothing store, Salgado Fenwick.  They are made in various sizes from 8mm to 14mm and in various shapes such as round and square. I have also experimented with making them in bezel settings.  I source my gemstone cabochons from various locations from around the world.  One of my favourite sources is a supplier in the United States.  I am always on the lookout!   I generally use sterling silver backs and post clutches, but sometimes I also use surgical steel for the larger gemstones and bezels.

Gemstone and Color Vibrations

A discourse about vibration reminded me that everything has a vibration, including color.  Light colors have a higher vibration than the the darker colors, although indigo holds the highest vibration. Indigo is also connected to the 6th energy center or chakra.

Colour is the energy expression of light, and correlates to sound energy...Food also has an energy vibration and so do flower essences, essential oils and gemstones. In fact everything has an energy vibration. 

Amethyst and Quartz Crystals...
The rose has the highest vibration of the essential oils. This is not surprising since the rose is the sacred geometry of the soul.  Flower essences can resonate with your divine patterns and blueprint. 

Gemstones have an intelligence that we are only beginning to understand. They provide a bridge to humanity much like the flowers do. They are part of the kingdoms of nature that are here on earth to assist humanity in remembering and reconnecting to their divinity and all the qualities of divine love.  Crystals are precipitations of light.  Many healing modalities use crystals to assist the healing process.

 (Thank you to the Radiant Rose Academy for permission to cite these.)

As we become more conscious and increase the light vibration in our bodies, then we will desire to make higher vibrational choices to support this process.  My jewelry creations are made to support our awakening consciousness.  They are an extension of my interest in energy, healing, color, beauty and creativity.
