Herkimer Diamond

I received one Grade AA+ Herkimer Diamond for review. This particular diamond in fact, pictured above.

I am a girl who loves sparkly things and this beautiful gem fits the bill perfectly! It is larger than I expected. When placed in the palm of my hand you can clearly see its' size.
With its' six sides and visible enhydro bubbles, this piece really has character and brilliance.
Imagine the wonderful things you can do... a necklace, a charm for a bracelet, a ring.... so many ideas swirling around.
Then I did a thorough browse of the website and learned about drilled Herkimer diamonds. This would be what you would normally attach to the image of a traditional diamond. So now it's a question of getting it drilled or not.
Oh, but it's beauty takes my breath away and I cannot harm it that way, no matter how beautiful it could become. There is something so much more special in its' natural beauty.
Guess it's true what they say about diamonds being a girls best friend.

To learn more about Herkimer Diamonds please visit the website.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. What a rock! Looks like it will be too big for a ring, for my little fingers at least.

  2. Wow, so pretty! I like the natural look of the gem! I've never heard of Herkimer diamonds before, but the site has a lot of information on its qualities, grade and other information! Very helpful and interesting for a complete novice like me! Anyway, I wouldn't want to get it drilled either. Thanks for sharing!

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
