  • one-of-a-kind post earrings 
  • 14K gold-fill handmade bezel settings (backed with sterling silver) with USA-made sterling silver posts and backs (marked .925 on the posts/backs) and are signed "NM" on the bezel backs (marked .925 as the backings are sterling silver)
  • coveted Number 8 turquoise (mined in Nevada, this mine has been closed a long time). These stones have pretty spiderwebbing. Upon macro inspection, one stone has a hairline fracture that is common for turquoise as the ground is often blasted to mine the turquoise out of the earth. The fracture doesn't go through the stone or all the way across and the stone is backed for extra protection. Turquoise often contains pits or small fractures as the stones are porous and not glassy minerals like diamonds or sapphires. As such, we hope you enjoy these stones for their beauty and rarity!
  • Gold-fill is very difficult to work with. All filed edges can gain a little bit of patina over time. A soft Sunshine cloth will remove any patina. Gold-fill will not wear off over time like plating as the thick layer is heat and pressured bonded to a brass core.
  • handmade in the USA by artist Nicole Jo Melton
  • You will receive the pictured earrings which will arrive in a gilded Knot & Splice gift box
  • Please see current processing times for all items on our FAQ/Policies page.

 

Please note: While every effort is made to photograph the items to be an accurate representation, photography and computer monitors have limitations and differences. Colors and brightness may vary on different devices. I believe these pieces look so much prettier in person when held in the hand and admired by the eye (I've also been told this many times by Knot & Splice customers). I hope you're delighted when you receive your special piece in the mail.
