Gold Hoop Earrings, Swirly with Gold Bead (posts or ear wires)

Gold Artisan Earrings are a fabulous accessory with whimsical swirls and a gold bead accent. They are of the highest quality 14/20 gold filled wire and posts. If you would prefer gold filled french hooks instead of posts, please email me with the request.

Size: 1 3/8" long (almost 35mm) from the top of the post bead to the bottom bead, and the circle is 20mm 3/4" in diameter.

Gold Filled is considered fine jewelry that will last a lifetime. It's an affordable alternative to pure gold. Detail about gold below.

Everything I send out comes carefully and uniquely wrapped. All items are made by me in my Milford, CT studio.

Thank you for looking at my unique, handmade jewelry!

Here are the differences in gold materials:

Fine Gold isn't pure gold when you buy fine jewelry. It usually has other alloys (metals) in it. Only gold marked 24 Kt. is 100% gold. Also called pure gold. 12Kt. would have half as much gold content as 24Kt. gold. 10/12/14/18 Kt. Gold are alloys of gold.

Gold Filled has 50-100,000 times more gold in than in gold plate. A 14/20 Gold Filled pendant is usually considered a lifetime piece of jewelry. Some high quality gold-filled pieces have the look, luster, and beauty of 14 karat (58%) gold. GF is considered fine jewelry and is the next best thing to solid gold. GF must equal at least 1/20 the weight of the total item. Rolled Gold is 1/2 as thick as gold layer. 1/40

Gold-plated metal has a very thin layer of gold on the surface of a base metal, usually applied by the process of electroplating. Plating makes the layer of gold a much thinner layer than Gold Filled, and it is most commonly plated with 10K gold.
