The name comes from Greek mythology: Niobe, daughter of Tantalus. Niobium is physiologically inert and thus hypo-allergenic. For this reason, niobium is found in many medical devices. Niobium can also be electrically heated and anodized, resulting in a wide array of colours using a process known as reactive metal anodizing which is useful in making jewellery, its natural colour is a silvery grey. Please note the ear-wires are not in the same bright gold as the hoops, being made from Niobium which In this instance is anodized to an antiqued gold colour.
✩Size (all measurements are approximate)✩
50mm from top of earwire to bottom of hoop
Hand made Niobium ear wires come as standard on these earrings.
Earrings suitable for- pierced ears and because of the gypsy hoop style findings these earrings are also suitable to wear through gauged flesh tunnels.
Due to the integral design of the ear findings a direct swap for non-pierced finding is not available. But if you like this design I could make you something very similar with a non-pierced finding. Please convo me if you are interested.
Your purchase will come gift wrapped in a lovely organza bag, acid free coloured/patterned tissue paper (colour+patterns may vary depending on season/item) and a sturdy outer packing mini corrugated cardboard box, ready to give as a loving gift to someone special or for a treat for yourself.
