How glorious is our Herkimer Diamond electroformed ring? The Herkimer diamond, April’s stone, is a gemstone that has meaning and properties of strengthening one’s mind. It is said to vitalize the owner’s energy and is famous for its superior purifying power. Choose our five-stone setting or select a single stone vertical or horizontal setting. It should be noted that the Herkimer diamonds that we work with are very tiny as you can see on the models.
Herkimer diamonds are double-terminated quartz crystals discovered within exposed outcrops of dolostone in and around Herkimer County, New York and the Mohawk River Valley. The “diamond” in their name is due to both their clarity and natural faceting – crystals possess double termination points and 18 total faces. Because the first discovery sites were in the village of Middleville and in the city of Little Falls, respectively, the crystal is also known as a Middleville diamond or a Little Falls diamond.
We love copper because of the positive, healing effects it has on the body! Our electroforming process is intricate, precise, exquisite, and handmade! We paint a conductive bezel on each raw stone, submerge it in a electrochemical solution that attracts or fuses the copper to it. To maintain the beautiful luster we hand seal each piece twice! Because of the precise and difficult nature of this process, our electroformed rings carry a longer production time but they are definitely worth it. We’ve built in quantity discounts into this listing, too … so the more you buy the more you save! They are delicious stacked up as you can see on the model. Lovingly handmade from scratch in our sweet little studio in Chico, CA.
