These small Herkimer Diamonds with sterling silver hooks are simple yet elegant and unique. Each stone varies but on average they measure 10mm x 15mm.

Herkimer Diamonds are double terminated quartz that are only found in upstate New York. They are called "diamonds" because they are unusually hard and clear (about as hard as an emerald). Herkimer Diamonds are uncut stones; they come out of the ground with natural faceting. Each one, regardless of size, has 18 facets.
