The classic hoop earring never seems to go out of style, and this handmade version will last you for years to come. The earrings starts with a tube of 14-karat gold. A brass rod is inserted inside, and the two metals are soldered together to become one. This process ensures a long lasting piece of jewelry that won’t turn green or in any way discolor. A special “mirror polish hammer” is applied to create the final shape and texture—this unique tool actually polishes the piece to a shine as it hammers away at the metal.
Gold-filled jewelry requires no polishing, as it will stay bright over many years. Keep away from abrasives or items that may scratch the surface of the jewelry.
