These delicate Hammered Gold Circle Earrings are handmade from gold-filled wire. They are light and comfortable, great for everyday wear and have a delicate hand-hammered textured finish.
'Gold-filled' is a layer of 14ct gold (usually about 5%) mechanically bonded to a base metal such as brass or copper. It is a thicker and more durable alternative to gold plating. When making these earrings I used 9ct yellow gold ear posts, 9ct yellow gold scroll backs and 9k yellow gold solder.
Approximate earring diameter 10mm. Wire thickness 1.3mm.
