Handmade modern large sterling silver round top hook earrings.
These 18-gauge large sterling silver hooks are the perfect answer when you want something bold and striking, yet simple.
- Solid Argentium sterling silver* wire.
- Fronts measure 2 1/8" (5.4 cm), backs 1 3/8" (3.5 cm), 18 gauge wire.
- Post ends are carefully rounded for comfort.
- Created and handformed by me. The front side is hammered flat for a bolder look, polished, then tumbled for hours to strengthen and shine the silver.
- Lightweight and great for daily wear.
18-gauge wire is a touch thicker than the average paperclip and works great for those who've had their ears pierced for awhile and wear earrings regularly.
If you have newly pierced ears or rarely wear earrings and prefer a smaller 19-gauge, please tell me in the "note to limegreenmodern" box at checkout. The 19-gauge will be a little thinner than the 18 in the flattened bold part of the earring too. I have both ready to go.
Love these earrings, but want them smaller?

*More on Argentium... just like traditional sterling silver (92.5% silver and 7.5% copper), Argentium simply replaces some of the copper (which causes silver tarnishing) with the element germanium. The result...the beautiful shine of silver without much maintenance. Just rinse with water and mild soap occasionally and use the polish pad I provide you to add a great shine!
