Tribal Antique Gold Hoops. Hand Forged Hypo-allergenic Niobium Ear-wires. Gypsy Earrings


HOOP (Dangle)- cast in Antiqued Gold plated "Tibetan Silver" (also known as Lead free Pewter)
EAR-WIRE (to go through the piercing)- in hand forged/hammered solid Niobium 0.8mm gauge wire (suitable for regular/normal size piercings).

Tribal statement Gypsy hoops in Gold plated Tibetan silver (Lead free Pewter) with handmade hypo-allergenic Niobium ear wires. For the Tribal/Gypsy/Fusion Bellydancer, BoHo Chic or Temple Goddess that loves the look of antique 24k gold. These delicately detailed hoops, they have the look of old Hill Tribe earrings but they are much lighter, being made from plated Tibetan Silver. They start life as very bright gold Tribal hoops, but I have used a black/ageing patina on them to give them an antique look, which also helps to make the intricate decoration stand out.

✩Size (all measurements are approximate)✩
48mm from top of ear-wire to bottom of hoop
width 38mm
weight around 5g each earring

*The cast pewter hoops have a raised & filigree design on the front, the reverse is plainer and flat, with a speckled texture design (as shown in 1 of the photos)*

The name comes from Greek mythology: Niobe, is the 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. The ear-wires are made from solid Niobium wire which In this instance is anodized to an antiqued bronze/gold colour.

*Hand made solid Niobium ear wires come as standard on these earrings.
*Earrings suitable for- regular/normal sized ear piercings 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 message me if you are interested, I would be happy to make a non-pierced/clip-on version for you.

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.
If you have any special requests, please ask.

✩The hand photo✩
Meet Mephisto the measuring hand, he will help show you the rough scale of the jewellery. The hand is exactly the same size as my own hand (I’m an average UK ladies size 7 glove).
