The "Confetti" hoops are festive, bold earrings that were designed with hundreds of petite, multi tourmaline rondelles wire wrapped to textured, 14kt *gold filled hoops. The hoops are generous in size, at 35mm (get perspective on their size by the photo of them in my palm). The tourmaline ranges in color and features hot pink, pale pink, raspberry, olive green, mint green, forest green, yellow, peach, teal, and amber. All stones are wired onto 24kt gold *vermeil headpins. Fun and festive earrings for all occasions! Your "Confetti" hoops will ship USPS Priority Mail with tracking in the US, and will be packaged in a lovely gift box. Thank you for shopping with The Bijou Babe!
*What is gold-filled? Gold-filled is constructed in two or three layers. The core metal is jewelers’ brass. Single clad gold-filled has all the gold content in a single layer on one side. Double clad gold-filled splits the gold content into surface layers on both sides of the material. The gold alloy is then bonded to one or both surfaces of the brass core with heat and pressure. The bonded raw material is then sold as sheet or wire to jewelry manufacturers for use in designs. Gold-filled is legally required to contain 5% or 1/20 gold by weight. This 5% is then described by the karatage of the gold alloy. Most gold-filled is 12kt or 14kt gold-filled, all of my designs listed as gold filled are 14kt gold filled. Vermeil and gold filled metal are beautiful and affordable alternative to solid gold, but if solid gold is your preference, please contact me for a custom order and pricing.
