This sterling silver hoop earring is crafted from 1.5mm tubing with a light-catching diamond-cut finish, creating a pattern that catches the light with the slightest movement. The hoops have a continuous look with almost no visible closure point. The ear wire is soldered into one end of the tubing and curved to follow the contour of the hoop; the wire simply slides into the tubing at the opposite end of the hoop. Gently pull the hoop open to open or close the earring. This earring is attractive sold as-is; if desired, add your own beads, drops, dangle or findings designs to create unique earrings. Hoop earrings circle the ear from front to back and offer a wide variety of design options. This earring is plated with rhodium to ensure a durable, tarnish-resistant finish.
