These earrings are a gorgeous, modern take on the traditional hoop earring. I hammered and hand formed the 14k gold filled wires into a marquise shape and hung subtle smoky quartz gemstones at the ends, creating a sleek, lightweight pair of earrings that can be easily dressed up or down.
These earrings can also be made in sterling silver or yellow gold filled; you can choose from these options during checkout.
Please note: as these earrings are very lightweight, it is important that they be worn with the small acrylic stopper that they come with to prevent them from falling off. The stopper does not show when worn close to the ear piercing. You should roll the stopper on to the wire so as not to put any pressure on the wire.
What is Gold Filled?
Gold filled is a layer of solid gold that has been bonded to a base metal — usually brass — using heat and pressure. The result is that, unlike regular plated metals, gold filled will not tarnish, the gold doesn't flake or wear off, and it will not cause allergic reactions even for those who are sensitive to plated metals. There is up to 600% more real gold in gold filled than there is in standard plating. Gold filled looks and feels just like wearing solid gold, but at a fraction of the price.
