All gemstones are AAA rated and are exquisite in color, cut, and faceting. The name of the earrings, L'heure Bleu" comes from the French expression, which refers to the period of twilight each morning and evening where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. The time is considered special because of the quality of the light at this time of day. (From Wikipedia) Long and luxurious chandeliers, using all 14kt *gold filled wire and delicate cable chain.

*About Gold Filled Metal Gold-filled is constructed in two or three layers. The core metal is jewelers’ brass. Single clad gold-filled has all the gold content in a single layer on one side. Double clad gold-filled splits the gold content into surface layers on both sides of the material. The gold alloy is then bonded to one or both surfaces of the brass core with heat and pressure. The bonded raw material is then sold as sheet or wire to jewelry manufacturers for use in designs. Gold-filled is legally required to contain 5% or 1/20 gold by weight. This 5% is then described by the karatage of the gold alloy. Most gold-filled is 12kt or 14kt gold-filled, all of my designs that use gold filled are 14kt. Vermeil and gold filled are beautiful and affordable alternatives to solid gold, and will retain its beauty, if cared for properly.
