Medium Faceted Gold Hoops


Medium Faceted Gold Hoops - Such a classic style earring!  I made so many of this style earring in sterling silver - I thought I would introduce some Gold to my shop.  This particular pair of earrings features a nice strong 12 gauge 14/20 Yellow Gold Filled (GF) wire which I have forged into a hoop style earring. Using 14 karat Gold Solder, I have added GF Posts, and the earrings fasten securely with a GF Earnut.

I have applied a faceted texture to three sides of the metal - really catches the light. The earrings measure just under 1 1/4" in length. The Gold Hoops earrings have been polished by hand and tumbled for hours to achieve incredible strength and a beautiful shine.

This listing is for one pair of earrings. The last photo illustrates the size difference between Large, Medium, and Small size hoop earrings that I typically offer for sale.

A Note About Gold Filled (GF) Jewelry:  Gold-filled is a quality, layered gold product that is easy to care for and will usually maintain its golden shine for a lifetime. Gold-filled metal is constructed layers. The core metal is jewelers’ brass. A gold alloy is then bonded to the surface of the brass core wire with heat and pressure. Unlike plated (aka electroplated or "dipped") metals, Gold-filled is legally required to contain 5% or 1/20 gold by weight. This 5% is then described by the karatage of the gold alloy. This necklace and earrings set is comprised of 14kt gold-filled. 14k Gold-filled products are identified as 14/20 Gold-filled; alternatively, 14kt Gold-Filled is also acceptable. 

Unlike Gold Filled,  Gold Plating is a miniscule layer of solid gold applied to a brass base. The plating does not compose any measurable proportion of the products total weight. It is estimated to be 0.05% or less of the metal product. Gold plating will generally wear off rather quickly and expose the brass base product. It does not stand up to heat, water or wear over time.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
