LARGE gauge Gold Hoop Earrings 16g, hammered 1 3/8" in diameter!

Shimmery and sensual from the minute you put these hammered, textured gold earrings on! These beautiful earrings are made with 14k Gold Filled wire which is considered fine jewelry as they will give a lifetime of wear because of the thickness of the the gold. It is an affordable way to wear real gold jewelry without the high price.

NOTE: These are made with 16 gauge wire, which is much thicker than traditional earrings which are usually 20 to 21 gauge. They are unisex and will work for men or women.

These earrings have been tumbled to give a beautiful shine and to strengthen them as well. Just note that these are 16 gauge earrings. I've also made sure the ends are sanded smooth so there will be no tearing of the ear which is why most people get infections.

Everything I create comes carefully and uniquely gift wrapped out of my Gilded Owl Jewelry Studio.

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 hundreds of 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.
