Don’t believe the rumors. Contrary to what you might have heard, diamonds don’t have the market cornered on sparkle. Sure, they put on a great show, but we’ve seen and sold some incredible gems that rival — and even out-sparkle — diamonds for a fraction of the price. What’s more, if sparkle is what you’re after, your options aren’t limited to gemstones alone. Thanks to the ingenuity of some of the world’s best jewelry artisans, there’s a way to make simple silver and gold jewelry sparkle like diamonds in the sun.
Commonly found on some of the finest gold link chains, this technique, known as diamond-cutting, requires a skillful hand to cut or grind intricate facets or grooves into the surface of metal jewelry. Taken as a whole, these facets work like mirrors on a disco ball, causing the pieces to glisten radiantly when rotated in the light.
We’ve put this technique on full display in our Diamond-Cut Dancer Pendants. Here, .925 sterling silver has been drenched in yellow gold and carefully faceted for maximum sparkle. The result is a luxe two-tone look that’s the perfect foil for these playful filigree pendants. Gift the butterfly to the nature-lover in your life or show your love with a heart overflowing with flowers.
Crafted in Jordan, this necklace is a delight both for its charming design and glittering finish. The best part? You can claim it for the Stauer Impossible Price — because when you take a lesser-known path to sparkle, you’ll enjoy great savings along the way.
