This half-hoop earring measures 3/4″ from top to bottom and is just over 5mm wide. These sparkle like crazy as the light bounces off the 7 man-made, synthetic “diamonds”. The design alternates between rectangle stones that are just under 1/3 of a carat each, set on their longer, side edge and smaller rectangles that measure 0.13 points each. This gives you a total of approximately 3.25 carats in the pair, all in 4-prong settings just like genuine diamonds are set. They lock with an Omega-style spring lock, so you just put the post in your ear and pop the spring-loaded lever up over the post. Easy-breezy!
The setting is nickel-free sterling silver sealed in a rhodium-platinum seal to resist tarnishing when cared for properly.
