Sterling Silver Earrings with Stamped Flower in Square Design Silver Hoops Original New Handcrafted Pierced Earrings

This pair of newly handcrafted pierced earrings consists of stamped 18-gauge Sterling silver rectangles (about 10 by 18 mm, or 0.5 by 0.7 inch ), drilled and hung on handmade one-piece hoops (20 mm, or 0.8 inch diameter) of 20-gauge Sterling silver wire. The rectangular plaques were given a hammered texture on the forward surface, then hand-stamped with flower-within-a-square design created with original hand-forged dies. Each piece is stamped on the back with “.925” for Sterling silver; the back of one of the pair also bears an “RD” maker’s mark.

The ear wires have small silver knobs on one end to keep the silver plaques on when wearing the earrings. To wear these hoops, the pointed ends are gently twisted sideways enough to place through the ear piercing. The hoops can then be rotated through the ear until the small knobs are at the bottom behind the plaques. The ends of the hoops can be gently realigned if needed. These earrings including the hoops weigh about 2 grams each, and have a lively movement. An occasional light hand-buffing with a jewelry (rouge) cloth will keep them shiny.

A note for Astra’s Shadow shoppers: you may have noticed a number of silver jewelry items (or perhaps even purchased one) in the Astra’s Shadow collection described as vintage 1970s, many with an “RD” (R over D) makers mark. Those were made way back then by the same silversmith who made these earrings and the other items in the “New Handmade Jewelry” section of this shop. He has resumed silver and lapidary work and is producing new handcrafted items as a part of Astra’s Shadow. A new maker’s stamp (small R within a larger D) was designed to distinguish the current pieces from the vintage ones.

Please see the Shipping and Refunds/Exchanges sections in my Shop Policies.

Please be aware that the 8.25% California state sales tax will be added to price for buyers with California addresses.
