The Twist Gemstone Earrings are handmade in my workshop in Frederick, Colorado.  The earrings are made from two pieces of sterling silver (or 14K gold, depending on your preference) that have been twisted.  Two 3mm round gemstones (lab grown rubies are shown in the photo) are set in sterling silver bezel settings and attached to the twisted bar.  The gemstones move independently from the twisted silver bars.  Sterling Silver posts are welded to the backs of the earrings and held onto the ear with sterling silver push backs.  The back of one of the earrings is engraved with 925 (indicating sterling silver)  or 585 (indicating 14K gold) and my maker's mark, VAD.

You can choose what type of gemstone you would like set into these earrings.  I offer both natural gemstones and lab grown gemstones for diamond, ruby, sapphire, and emerald.  You can also choose whether to make them in sterling silver, 14K yellow gold, 14K white gold, or 14K rose gold.


The earrings will come in a box with a tarnish resistant bag (bag only if the sterling silver option is chosen).


These earrings are made to order. Please allow for up to three days before the earrings are shipped so that I can make them perfectly, just for you!

  • Sterling silver is made up of different metals, some of which will react to chemicals found in the air.  This reaction will produce a tarnish on the surface of the metal.  High moisture levels, exposure to sunlight, and contaminates such as salt water will increase this reaction.  To protect your sterling silver jewelry, please keep it in the complimentary tarnish resistant baggie when not being worn, or keep it in any airtight bag, and store your jewelry in a cool, dry place.  To clean any tarnish that does accumulate on the surface of the jewelry, use a soft polishing cloth or silver cleaner.

    To clean any dirt or grime, gently brush the jewelry with a soft bristled toothbrush and mild dish soap.  Enjoy the design and please contact me with any problems or concerns.
