    The set comes with either Goldtone or Sterling Silver hardware… and the set actually looks like this:

    For those new to this stone, Herkimer “Diamond” is not diamond; it is actually clear quartz mined in Herkimer County, New York.

    I wish they would not call it “Diamond” since it can be confusing for new shoppers :rolleyes2:

    Even though it’s not listed on HSN’s product page under What You Get, Host Colleen Lopez’s presentation did say the set comes with a small vile of stones found at the mind with some Herkimer material –

    Ooh baby. Let me tell you about Hermiker.

    First, Herkimer will sparkle when it dangles and is in the original form.

    Second, THIS will sparkle like crazy if those stones are clear. (And they appear to be clear in the presentations.) :stars2:

    The faceted versions of this necklace have been criticized as looking like plastic, and it is true that you can think of them that way when you first look at them. But trust me when I tell you they don’t behave like plastic. (I prefer mine interspersed with other stones; I have quartz and tanzanite.)

    These are not faceted stones but in their natural form. Those who like Herkimer for its healing properties should really enjoy this: there they are, in all their glory.

    I don’t think you will be sorry if you order this. The price is fantastic for both pieces, and I love that they have introduced gold tone hardware for this one too.

    The dangle is an “energy” charm dangle. (The one I have is a moon.) I like it!

    For those who like healing properties, here is a link for the Herkimer diamonds, which clear chakras, opening channels of energy to flow:

    They will be very bright, big stones. :clap:

    One note though: Several reviewers mention broken chains when shipped. Shipping safely has been a challenge for this brand, but they usually stand behind what they ship and will replace it if there is a problem.
