Colored gemstones 4x4mm, princess cut, patent stainless steel

The Cube stud earrings are elegant but can be worn every day. They are delicate, comfortable to wear and cannot be overlooked thanks to the colored gemstones. They underline the personality of the wearer.

The outer surfaces are matt. The interior surfaces are polished and therefore reflect a lot of light. All edges are softened and feel soft. Humphrey uses a nickel-free stainless steel. The weight is minimal, also suitable for sensitive ears and is perfectly balanced by the patent ear stud. This means that the stones always point forward and don't tip over.

The ear stud patent – ​​which we call O-Pop – was developed and protected by Humphrey. It contains a spring inside, the secure fit of which does not change even after years. The size is optimal so that you can hold the item well, but not too big to be unpleasantly noticeable. A spherical recess ensures that the pin of the ear stud automatically finds its way into the hole.

The colored gemstones are held by the force (tension) of the earring bar. They seem to float in the earrings. To ensure this is safe, two notches in the shape of the colored gemstone are made in the rail using computer-controlled machines.

Humphrey has perfected this setting technique since the mid-1990s and offers a 2-year guarantee that the gemstone will be held securely if handled properly. However, the lifespan is unlimited. Most of the jewelry Humphrey ever produced is still worn.

Lolith Blue Violet:

According to an investigation, iolite, also known as cordierite, is said to have been used for navigation in the Viking Age, even when the sky was overcast, due to its ability to make polarized light visible. This so-called sun stone is known from legendary traditions.

Iolite is derived from the Greek “ion” and means violet.

The predominant color of iolite is deep blue to blue-violet.

With a Mohs hardness of 7 to 7.5, iolite is one of the hard minerals

Citrine Yellow::

The Greeks coined the name of the stone. They gave it the name Citrine, which means lemon stone. They got their name because citrine is light yellow like a lemon. Romans wore citrine on their chest to protect themselves from evil eyes. Citrine was given a special role in the Middle Ages. It was revered as a sunstone that was said to give the wearer eternal life.

Citrine is the yellow colored variety of quartz. The name is derived from the Latin 'citrus' for lemon and refers to the lemon-yellow color of this quartz variety. The most sought-after are either golden yellow or orange citrines, which then have specific names depending on the color classification, such as Madeira citrine (intense orange-brandy color) or Palmeira citrine (intense orange-amber color). In principle, the rule applies: the more intense the color, the more expensive, although the purity of citrine should definitely be in the best range. Citrine has a hardness of 7 on the Mohs hardness scale.

Amethyst Violet:

Amethyst is a stone that is particularly fascinating because of its dark purple color. The word violet means tremendous strength. Color occurs in nature wherever there is a special power and energy.

The name of amethyst comes from the ancient Greeks. They believed the stone protected against drunkenness. According to an ancient legend, amethyst was a nymph with whom Bacchus, the god of wine, fell in love. However, the nymph did not return this love and his advances were blocked. She asked the goddess Diana for help and she turned her into a gemstone. When Bacchus realized that he had lost his love, he poured his best wine over the stone, which then changed color. This gave the stone a protective effect against drunkenness.

Gem quality amethyst is a popular and widely used gemstone. The purple color of amethyst ranges from a very light, slightly pink to a very dark purple. Dark purple stones are considered particularly valuable. Amethyst has a hardness of 7 on the Mohs hardness scale.

Rhodolite Red:

Rhodolite is the name (trade name) for a mixed crystallization between pyrope and almandine. Its name comes from the Greek “rhodos” and means something like rose, rose stone. It was named so because of its purple color.

Rhodolite is a popular red variety of garnet. Its color ranges from pink to dark red with a subtle purple or raspberry undertone.

Thanks to its excellent hardness of 7 to 7.5 on the Mohs hardness scale, the stone is suitable for all types of jewelry.

Tourmaline pink and green:

The name tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese word “tura mali”. Translated it means something like “stone with mixed colors”.

An old legend from Egypt says that a tourmaline traveled over a rainbow on the long journey from the interior of the earth up to the sun. On the way he absorbed all the colors of the rainbow. That's why it is still called the "gem of the rainbow" today. Tourmaline is available in more than 50 shades from colorless to pink, red, yellow, brown, green and blue to black. A single crystal can often have multiple colors.

Humphrey only uses pink and green tourmalines.

Thanks to its excellent hardness of 7 to 7.5 on the Mohs hardness scale, the stone is suitable for all types of jewelry.

Topaz Blue and White:

Topaz takes its name from an island in the Red Sea, which was called Topazos in ancient times. In fact, another mineral, olivine, was mined there and was long confused with topaz. Another explanation of the name comes from the Sanskrit word tapas, which means "fire" or "light".

Topaz has been known for at least 2,000 years and is one of the gemstones that form the foundations of the twelve gates to the New Jerusalem, the city of God. These stones were intended to symbolize beauty, splendor and ward off enemies.

The color of topaz range from yellow, light blue, light green, tawny, reddish brown, red, purple and colorless. Humphrey only uses blue and white topazes. Many topazes change color through treatment. This also applies to our blue topazes, as they would otherwise attract enormous prices.

With a grade of 8 on the 10-part Mohs scale, topaz is one of the hardest of all gemstones - only diamond, sapphire and ruby ​​are harder.

A colored gemstone brings joy for many days and for a lifetime!
