These earrings were hand wrapped using only the finest Argentium Silver wire and 14 karat yellow gold filled wire. Intricately woven with time and care one piece at a time. Never mass produced. The ear hooks are fine Argentium Silver. Argentium silver is a finer quality than traditional sterling, yet is extremely resistant to tarnish. All of my Argentium silver is nickel free. They are light weight and are a unique, eye catching addition to any collection. Available in all silver, mixed gold/silver, or all gold. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
