These are classic studs with a pop of color reminiscent of lush green forests. I 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 I've seen around. I hand-picked these gems to match in color and then set them by hand to give the brightest sparkle. Each stone measures 5mm in diameter.
