This half-hoop has an Italian flair to it. These are a half-round shape with a post and a spring-loaded Omega back closure that pops right over the post to lock the earring in place without having to slide on those super tiny butterfly backs that always seem to fall out of your fingers. These are the perfect small size, at 5/8″. Because these are a bit thicker than most hoops, at 1/2″ thick/wide, they make a nice statement and do appear a bit visually larger than their true size. These are a beautiful brushed silver with yellow gold accents along the scalloped edge design and along the center design of 3 marquis-shaped accents. Each section of the gold accent is set with a 2mm round sparkling stone.
These weigh 5 grams per earring, so they are fairly lightweight on the ear. The base metal is sterling silver that has been sealed in rhodium-platinum to resist tarnishing when cared for properly, and there are some hints of 18kt yellow gold accents as well.
