While it's common knowledge that "all that glitters is not gold", you may be less familiar with the fact that all that is a colorless gemstone is not a diamond!
There are severals pieces in the current Original Eve Collection that feature dazzling colorless gems that glitter in the light with their beautiful facets, flashes of iridescence, and soothing watery appearance.
In addition to these collection pieces, I will share colorless gems that are in the Original Eve Collection, but have yet to make it into finish jewelry pieces! These gemstones are available for purchase and I would LOVE to work with you to transform them into a custom piece.
Be sure to reach out to email@example.com if something catches your eye!
The ethereal glow of the goddess stone, moonstone, is transformative.
When light falls on moonstone, thin layers of alternating minerals cause the light to billow across the face of the gemstone in the phenomenon called adularescence.
In Rainbow Moonstone, the glistening effect of adularescence is displayed in the spectral colors, revealing a magical, shimmering rainbow in every gem. This necklace is knotted on silk and finished with an 18k recycled yellow gold clasp. It falls to 16" and has a mesmerizing sparkle.

These stunning drop earrings capture light and shimmer thanks to their beautiful checkerboard faceting pattern and movement provided by the Trapeze component.

Colorless Gemstones in the Collection
There are several colorless gemstones filled with allure and beauty that I have purchased for Original Eve over the years, but not all of these beautiful colorless gems have made their way into finished jewelry... Yet!
See the Gems below and be sure to contact me if any of these gems have caught your eye. I would love to work with you to transform them into a custom piece. firstname.lastname@example.org
1. Rainbow Moonstone Heshi Cut Bead Strand
Rainbow hues radiate out of this Heshi Cut Bead Strand with movement. With facets on the sides of the beads, the Rainbow Moonstones have a subtle sparkle.
These beads could be strung into a Candy Necklace with knots between each bead.

The strand could be mixed and matched with another of our Heshi cut strands for added color and interest
2. Sulfur Tipped Rock Crystal Marquise
Exquisitely cut elongated Marquise of Rock Crystal Quartz appear as if they are dipped in white frosting, an effect caused by the presence of sulfur in the gemstones. The result is a completely unique gem that is calling to become the perfect pair of earrings.

Create a cap and suspend the marquise from their tops as a stunning pair of earrings
