  • $72.00


These earrings are a chain maille weave creating a cross design out of sterling silver and 14k gold filled* rings.  The ear wires are sterling silver.  The earrings are 2-1/4 inches from the top of the ear wire and 1/2 inch wide.

*”Gold-filled” is a U.S.A. industry standard that legally requires 1/20th or 5% pure gold by weight.  It is a strictly regulated process that involves pressure boding multiple layers of sold 14k gold with extreme heat over a core of high quality jeweler’s brass resulting in a durable, quality, real gold product.  Because the outer layer of gold is thick, unlike gold-plated, your piece will not tarnish, flake or fade.  If one is not allergic to gold, it is unlikely one would get a reaction to gold-filled.  While gold-filled remains a less expensive alternative to sold gold, it’s considerable gold content makes it about twice as expensive as sterling silver.
