Sorry, this item sold. Have MeshelDesigns make something just for you, or try these other items:
This pair is just over 2 inches long, including the ear wires.
The frames are hand formed and hammered from 14 karat gold filled wire. Then I wrapped onto each frame finer gauge gold-filled wire, along with the beautiful pearls that decorate each piece. The ear wires are also 14 karat gold filled.
A wonderful gift for you or someone you love!
About the components of this piece:
GOLD-FILLED WIRE: What Is Gold-Filled Wire?
Pure gold is 24 karat and is so soft that is it impossible to utilize it in wire wrap jewelry. 14 karat rolled gold wire is created by taking a sheet of 14 karat gold and bonding it through extreme heat and pressure to a core of semi-precious metal. This is a very sophisticated process and only a few mills in the world do it. You should not mistake this process for gold plating. There is a very big difference. The end result is a 14 karat tube which is strong, durable, and resistant to tarnish because of its 14 karat gold covering. Today there are very few jewelry items made with this metal commercially. Usually they are done in a very inferior gold plate to keep the costs down. There is 100 times more gold in 14 karat Gold filled (rolled gold) than in gold plate. A 14/20 Gold Filled piece is considered a lifetime piece of jewelry.
