These lightweight teardrop hoop earrings are made of blackened steel and overlaid 23k gold leaf. Teardrop shapes are individually formed and forged, blackened with a heat patina and accented with 23k gold leaf. The drops hang on 14k gold filled earwires and they will shift from point up to point down as you wear them, so the design is always changing. Steel has been sealed to resist rust and protected the blackened color.
Measurement: Drops are around 7/8 inch (23 mm) long by 5/8 inch (15 mm) wide, total length of the earrings including the wire is about 1 1/2 inches.
Care: Steel has been sealed to resist rust and protected the blackened color. While it is fine to wear steel jewelry while washing hands, doing dishes or in the rain but it is not recommended to wear in the pool or other activities that will expose the metal to water for an extended period of time. Make sure steel is thoroughly dry before storing.
