These dramatic round hoops measures 1.5″. The front and inside of the back are set with 11 large 4mm wide X 6mm long baguettes in each earring. Separating each large baguette there are a pair of 1.5mm round stones, for 18 total on each hoop. This gives a grand total of approximately 11.5 carats in the pair. These make quite a statement at 4 mm thick.
These weigh 15 grams total. The base metal is sterling silver that has been sealed in rhodium-platinum to resist tarnishing when cared for properly. These have a trademarked locking mechanism, which helps prevent you from losing these hoops. The front ear post locks right into the back of the hoop, “huggie”-style, so that there are no tiny backs to slide on and fumble with. The back of the hoop open and closes easily, yet tightly because it is spring-loaded and the post clicks snuggly into the back of the hoop.
