Candy Drop Earrings

Here at Potato and Stones, we are huge fans of the Duchess of Cambridge’s style. We love how she mixes and matches high fashion with high street brands. Most importantly, we love that she’s not afraid to re-wear her clothes or jewelry.

We can’t pinpoint which exact piece of the Duchess’ jewelry that we love, but her gold hoops with interchangeable gemstone earrings come in amongst our top picks.

With that in mind, we decided to create our Candy Drop Earrings. You can wear just the earrings alone or pair them with the detachable Candy Drops to create a two in one look.

We offer 2 earring styles for this look:

  • Hooks
  • Hoops

Please note that the eyelet attachment for the Candy Drops will be crafted specifically for each earring style, hence a Candy Drop crafted for the Hoop style will not fit the Hook style and vice versa.

Rhodolite Garnet

The Garnet family comprises of differently coloured minerals with similar crystal structure and chemical composition. Some of the representatives of the Garnet family are Pyrope, Almandite, Spessartite and Grossularite.

The name Garnet is derived from the Latin word for grain due to its rounded crystals and similarity to the red seed covers of a pomegranate.

Garnets come in a variety of colours including yellow, orange and green. The most widely known colour of Garnet would be dark red. When the term “Garnet” is used, it is usually connotative of the dark red form. Other colour Garnets are usually given more descriptive gemstone terms such as the Tsavorite Garnet.

While we appreciate all types of Garnets, including the fiery looking Spessartite Garnet, we personally have a soft spot for the rose-red Garnet known as Rhodolite Garnet.

Rhodolite Garnets have a lighter tone and more purplish colour than typical Garnet gemstones. It is often regarded as a variety of the mineral Pyrope.

Kyanite

When we first stumbled upon Kyanite, we were in awe of its extraordinary blue colour, which made it very similar to Blue Sapphire.

Until the discovery of Kyanite in Nepal over 20 years ago, Kyanite had traditionally been mined in countries such as Brazil, Cambodia, Myanmar, Switzerland, Russia, Kenya, and certain parts of the United States. However, Kyanite from these sources tend to have grayish tones and little transparency.

Kyanite recently mined from Nepal have however, been of high quality and have produced exceptional blue colour and transparency.

Each Nepalese Kyanite that we have has been specially selected, ensuring we bring to you the same exceptional blue colours that Nepalese Kyanite has become known for.
