Despite their diamond misnomer, Herkimers are six-sided, double-terminated quartz crystals and are relatively valueless.  Unscrupulous jewelers during the Civil War often tried to pass them off as the more precious variety.  In our take on classic diamond solitaire studs, the Herkimers are gripped in hand-hewn silver settings.  Every unique stone is chosen and set by hand; expect yours to have irregularities like cracks, dark spots, and milky-colored mineral impurities.
