Made from 14k gold fill, these hoops measure approximately 1" in diameter (size small). Each earring is individually made by hand and gently hammered, so there will be slight variances from pair to pair.
Gold filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors. As a matter of fact, anyone who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry.
