Embossed sterling silver flower earrings feature sparkly little garnet gemstones wrapped in gold wire for a eye-catching contrast to the bright silver.
The earrings are completely handcrafted from sterling silver wire and sheet and gold filled wire. I embossed the sterling silver tabs, cut them to shape, filed, drilled and and sanded them. My ear wires are also handmade and carefully finished for comfort.
What is goldfilled you might ask? "14/20" gold-filled material is made with 14-karat gold and the gold represents 1/20th (or 5%) of the total weight of the material. Goldfilled wire gold-filled has an actual layer of karat gold, not just a few microns like goldplated, so it will not rub off as gold plate does.
The silver tab with the gemstone dangle measure just a bit over 3/4 of an inch i(22mm). The total length including the earwire is 1 1/2 inches (3.8 cm).
