The brightly colored rings are made from anodized aluminum, a process in which the rings are dipped into an electrically charged solution and then dyed.
Because aluminum is a lightweight metal, these Gay Pride earrings weigh much less than one might think by looking at them. They're great for those who can't tolerate heavy earrings!
These Gay Pride earrings measure about 2 3/4" long, including the stainless steel ear wires.
**Note: do not use jewelry polishing creams or cloths on this item, as it may remove color from the rings.**
