Sterling Silver (925/1000) & Hoop Vintage Bead Earrings

Index Price: $NZ 50

Earrings on long loops are a very early style, usually made from gold. Finds from the Mycenaean & Minoan cultures of the 14th and 13th centuries B.C.E. include an integral "boat" decoration, whilst finds from Phoenicia dating from the 7th-6th century B.C.E. have a decoration applied to the base of the loop. Plain loops - "hoop earrings" - remain popular in most cultures.

The hoops are hand-forged on the premises from Sterling Silver, and each hoop is decorated with seven vintage metalised-glass beads.
