Looky what I've got!!!!!

I have several pairs of unmounted gemstones, and have forever wanted to find some kind of earring arrangement that I could mount them, and switch them around as my mood dictated.

Jackets would be the logical answer, but I've never liked them because they always 'looked' like jackets to me....the added element always appeared to sit behind the stud rather than under it, as it would if it were one piece. Does this make sense?

Anyhoo, when I saw DBL's fabulous detachable drop yellow diamonds, I had an "ah hah" moment.

First of all...here's the inspiration: DBL's incredible earrings (that's Webgal's ear), and a closeup of the 'gismo'....see how it takes a 90 degree turn forward to bring the dangle up under the stud? Maybe this is done all the time...but I'd never seen it before.

Also, here's a picture of my three pairs of small gemstones, (the pink sapphires are way enlarged)

Now, stay tuned, and see what's coming!!!

I know, I talk too much... ....but I must!

I sent David my emerald studs...and this is what came back:

A pair of "Sam Special" studs, .62tcw, G, SI-2. They are gorgeous and BLINDING!!!!! (I will NEVER spend $$$ on certed, fancy, high clarity diamonds for ears as long as "Sam" and David are around!)

David had his jeweler adapt the existing emerald mountings for the new "jackets". I got two extra pairs of "gismo/jackets" for my other orphan gemstone pairs to be mounted later, locally.

Here are pics. In the interest of science, I even included an earshot. (To my horror even my ears look old!! I hope it doesn't pop up too much in the thumbnails...

Aren't they neat?

Thanks David!!!

What a great idea...to suit any of your moods (I like that saying). I could not even tell they were jackets "persay" until that side shot! Those pink sapphire pears will also be amazing! Sam does know how to do it doesn't he?? Beautiful!~Ronda

Some emeralds! Those definitely need no wordy recommendation at all... it is plain to see how mice they are.

Colored drops are the perfect thing on the ear. Glad to see a happy trio like this

What a great idea! I know what you mean about earring jackets...DBL's is a perfect design for dangling add-ons.
Enjoy! :-)

About what size are your emerald studs you had remounted. I am wondering what a good ratio is from the smaller stud to the drop.

Hi...I just saw this...

Heidi: I'm not sure of the carat weight of the emeralds. for some reason 80pts each pops up in my head. I do think they're about 6mm, though...maybe a little less.

EMJ....nah, not yet. One of these days!
