I’ve done an exhaustive search on “baby teardrop”, which is how the
finished jewelry is named, to no avail. That is sort of a misnomer,
as the shape is actually an upside down teardrop of sorts. The only
response I’ve received anywhere was that they were possible
briolettes, but I don’t agree with that.
I would love to find some of these in any type stone or even metal.
They appear to be half drilled.
Although I don’t know the name of the stone it looks a lot like half
drilled stones I saw at Dirka in New York City, Manhattan, jewelry
district. Unfortunately I can’t put my hand right on their contact
so you’ll have to do the yellow page hunting. Good Luck
How beautiful they are! Most people, I think would call them “buds"
or “bud-like”, but if you want to sound more technical you could say
"gemmate”. That’s the adjectival form of “gemma” (bud) , the noun.
