22k yellow gold round dangle earrings with solid 18k gold hooks
These round gold dangle earrings are handmade by me in the beautiful Pacific Northwest of North America.
SIZE: 18mm diameter
Solid, handmade, 18k gold ear hooks.
Light shimmers through the holes as they swing, wiggle and sparkle.
I strive to run an ecologically sustainable business.
Because my jewelry is made using hand fabrication processes, it has lightness, durability and detail unachievable via mass production.
I only work with solid silver and gold. The sheet I use in these earrings is manufactured by fusing a sheet of 22k gold and sterling silver together. This coin like sheet is called " bimetal".
Bimetal is a very durable, repairable, and recyclable material that avoids the use of the acidic cyanide solutions needed for gold plating.
For more about bimetal in 22k, see http://hausermiller.com/fab/bimetal.html- this is where I purchase it from. This company uses up to 90% post consumer recycled gold.
The back side is oxidized black.
- GUARANTEED forever against breakage due to normal use.
- RETURNS- Contact me ASAP if you are not happy with your order. Your happiness is my main goal!
I will accept returns for a full refund, minus shipping costs, if it is shipped back to me within 7 days of receipt by you. (longer for international orders, of course)
- SUSTAINABILITY: I use silver and gold with a 50- 90% post consumer content from Hauser and Miller, precious metals manufacturer since 1909. They purchase from fair labor practicing mines.
I believe that purchasing high quality jewelry with a post consumer content that is repairable and recyclable is very important.
I make jewelry in small batches, minimizing waste and minimizing resources wherever I can. My manufacturing processes strive to strengthen the metal by using hand forming techniques en lieu of casting processes.
