“Sun Circle” 14k Yellow Gold Filled Quartz Crystal Dangle Earrings
Inspired by the 1920’s Art Deco “Pools Of Light” jewelry designs, are the “Sun Circle” earrings. Luminous genuine quartz crystal orbs dangle and catch light beautifully beneath golden circles. 14k yellow gold filled ear wires complete the design. A nod to the golden age with a modern minimalist aesthetic, they make an elegant and timeless statement.

ABOUT GOLD FILLED JEWELRY
Gold-filled jewelry is composed of a solid layer of gold, which must constitute at least 5% (1/20) of the item’s total weight, mechanically bonded to sterling silver or a base metal (such as jeweler’s brass). Gold-filled items are 5 to 10 times thicker than regular gold plating, and 15 to 25 times thicker than gold electroplate, making it much more valuable and longer lasting because gold-filled has an actual layer of karat gold, not just a microscopic film as on plated jewelry which is estimated to be 0.05% or less of the metal product. Most gold-filled is 12kt or 14kt gold-filled (I use 14kt for my pieces). Gold-filled does not de-laminate or peel like plated or “dipped” products. It is tarnish resistant and does not tarnish as readily as silver. Many find that they never have to clean gold-filled items at all. However, from time to time your jewelry may become dirty from everyday wear. To clean gold-filled it is best to use mild soap and water.
