Super dainty and ultra light, this fresh take on the timeless hoop is sure to be your new staple! The hoops are hand-wrought in your choice of sterling silver or 14k gold-fill metal and have a lovely texture which compliments the delicate box chain on the earwires. Don't let the threaders intimidate you! The sensation of chain getting pulled through your piercings may feel odd initially, but compared to putting gummy plastic semi-orbs in our eyes (i'm talking about contact lenses), threader earrings are a piece of cake. And there's no backs to worry about losing—bonus! Hoops are individually made from 18 gauge twisted wire. Thickness is approximately 1mm, diameter approximately 18mm.
**CARE: Please do not use excessive force as this is a delicate, handmade item. Sterling silver may react based on individual skin chemistry; any tarnish or oxidation can be buffed away with a jewelry polishing cloth. Gold-filled isn't inclined to tarnish but you may notice darkening at the ends of the earrings where the metal's brass core is exposed to oxygen—this is normal and can either be left alone (it is't visible unless you look for it) or polished away. Depending on wear and exposure to sweat and the elements, the gold-fill surface may lose some luster. This can quickly be buffed back to its original sheen with a polishing cloth.
**Your order includes a complementary polishing cloth and will be packaged beautifully, ready to gift (or keep).
