How Its Made: These stud earrings are made well. We actually drill the stones partially, and then glue the sterling silver posts into them.
Cheap versions of this, made by other "jewelers", just have a post glued onto the back of a polished stone and they break the first time they are worn because they are not made to last. Ive had one of these in my ear for 5 years, with my dreadlocks catching on it and everything... its still in there.
We set these the same way pearls are set.
The stone chips will never match identically, as they are all pulled from our tumble processing when assessed to be good fit for ear studs. i.e. they are random tumble stones that we pair up later.
