Salt & Pepper Diamond Stud Earrings. Dazzling Natural Diamonds measuring just 3mm are set in either solid 14k gold or 14k gold-filled settings. The stones are wonderfully sparkly, genuine Diamonds - they are neither synthetic nor lab-grown. The earrings have butterfly scrolls for backs which are also 14k gold or 14k gold-fill. What are Salt & Pepper Diamonds? Most Diamonds come with flaws, imperfections or inclusions though they are usually so small you cannot see them with the naked eye. The inclusions could come in different sizes, shapes and colours, though typically black and white. A Salt and Pepper Diamond is one that has a mix of many black (pepper) and white (salt) inclusions or flaws creating a silky grey and speckled appearance to the stone. In recent years, Salt & Pepper Diamonds have grown in popularity as a relatively inexpensive alternative to the traditional eye clean Diamond. The photos are deliberately magnified to show the details, however, in real life the speckles in the stones are not so visible and appear a silky, sparkly grey colour. ✨ Diamonds are the birthstone for April & the stone representing the 60th Wedding Anniversary✨ ‣ The Diamonds measure 3mm ‣ Choose between solid gold settings or 14k gold filled settings from the drop down menu above. ‣ The earrings are 13mm long approx including the posts ‣ Total carat weight is 0.18 cts approx (0.09 ct each stone) * Your earrings will arrive in a Saturnalia gift box. **Free Worldwide Tracked & Insured Shipping!** ✨ What is 14k Gold Fill?✨ Please do not confuse gold fill with gold plate! Gold filled has literally 100% more gold than gold plate. Gold filled (or rolled gold) comprises a solid layer of gold (14k) permanently bonded to a base metal. It is very hard wearing and under normal wear the gold will not peel or flake, unlike gold plate, and so it is a more economical alternative to pure gold. **Please note that photos are deliberately magnified to show the detail of each piece, so please be aware that items will look larger in the pictures than in real life. Please carefully read the description where accurate sizes will be listed!** ✨ Processing & Shipping Information * We post Monday to Friday and will send your jewellery securely packaged and in a beautiful gift box. * Our processing time is 1-3 business days. * Standard Tracked & Insured Shipping is Free on orders over £100! ** UK orders are sent via ‘Royal Mail - Signed For’ - 1-2 working days delivery ** International orders are sent with Royal Mail Tracked & Insured; A signature will be required upon delivery - 7-10 working days delivery - Please expect shipping delays due to the pandemic. ** Express Shipping upgrades are available at checkout - 2-3 working days delivery ✨ Our postal boxes are made from recyclable cardboard and we use biodegradable packing peanuts, composed of starch, that can be composted or dissolved in water!
