the gold rush earrings have been featured on and

An ode to California history! These petite cluster earrings mix genuine gold (in the form of 14K gold fill) with fool’s gold (or iron pyrite). I hand wire wrap teeny faceted iron pyrite rondelles on sterling wire and then oxidize the silver to a rich black to set off the glimmers of gold in the pyrite. I suspend the cluster from 14K gold fill ear wires that I hand form, hammer and polish. So now you can own your history nerdiness AND look smashing.

Dimensions and materials:

Cluster: oxidized sterling silver and iron pyrite
Cluster Dimensions: approximately ¾ inch long
Ear wire: gold fill
Total length from top of ear wire: approximately 1 ½ inches

Your purchase will arrive beautifully wrapped in a kraft jewelry box tied with ribbon and a gift tag- ready for gift giving!
