Eye catching hoops in flat, dark oxidised silver with a contrasting 23.5 carat gold front edge. The black and gold are a stunning combination, and in this slightly larger size they're perfect for standing out.
The gold is applied using a technique called keum boo, in which real gold 'foil' is bonded to the silver using heat; this fuses the two metals together. Each hoop measures 27mm diameter and 3mm width.
Your handmade earrings will come in a stylish grey box with gold stamped logo.
As with all my silver jewellery, these hoop earrings are handmade by me from recycled silver, with recycled gold foil, so if shopping ethically is important to you, you know your purchase will be both environmentally friendly supporting a small, creative British business. My postage and packaging materials are also recycled and recyclable - no unwanted plastic here!

Care of your Silver and Gold Jewellery
Oxidisation is a surface technique which colours the outer layer of the silver and so can wear away as it is touched/rubbed over time. The black finish can be refreshed as many times as needed, and I am happy to offer a touch up service free of charge (you would just need to post it to me) at any time.
However, caring for and storing your jewellery appropriately will stop the colour wearing away quickly/at all. Remove your jewellery before excercising or showering, and ideally before going to bed as well. Protect your jewellery from other items by storing them in the box they come in, or a soft bag would be fine. Do not to polish oxidised jewellery as this would remove the oxidisation. The gold can be gently polished with a soft cloth if needed.
If you are not happy with your purchase, or wish to return it for any reason, please get in touch and I will be happy to help.
I offer refunds within 14 days of delivery and exchanges up to 30 days (if it is a gift at Christmas for example, I will extend this to 14 and 30 days from receipt of the gift - so mid January for a refund and end of January for an exchange).
If your jewellery breaks (this is very rare!) do get in touch and I can either replace or fix it for you.
I am a small independant business so am flexible and will always work with you to ensure you are happy.
I make every effort to ship items as quickly as possible. If you need something in a rush or by a certain date please let me know and I will make your order a priority. You will receive an email with your tracking number once your order has been shipped.
I am a one woman business and mum working part time so typically:
~ If I have something in stock I aim to ship it within 1 day of receiving an order
~ If I don't have it in stock and need to make your item I aim to make and post it within 5 days, often much sooner.
~ If it is a custom piece such as a ring made to size it may need hallmarking which can take longer - I will contact you to advise on a delivery date, but I aim to complete these in around 2 weeks.
Thank you so much for shopping with my small handmade business, it is truly appreciated.
