Earring Frames, Ready for Embelishment

These are one of the most exciting items we've gotten all year! We've had some of these frames in stock for a couple of months now, but they've been so popular that we've had trouble keeping some of the shapes in. We just got the marquise shape (far left with tanzanite drops) back in and we just can't help ourselves around here, they're just all too tempting to decorate! These are made of sterling silver and gold vermeil (24kt over sterling silver) and have a great brushed texture.
[From left to right . . . first tanzanite and silver, second amethyst and gold vermeil, third chrysoprase, citrine and gold vermeil, fourth apatite, iolite, kyanite and gold vermeil, fifth grey sapphire and silver, sixth Swarovski crystal and gold vermeil]
The frames come plain, these are just examples done by our creative employees (like I mentioned above, we just can't control our creative impulses!). What I like most about these is that you don't need a ton of beads to dress them up, some just need one great bead to really set it off. You can, of course, go crazy and drench them in gem and crystal beads and really make some show stoppers. We won't stop you. :)
