Pure 24K gold teeny, tiny, thin little hoops with a tiny hook and eye closure mechanism. Pure gold is soft and hypoallergenic, making these a good choice for baby earrings, or for little girls....or persons looking for a Minimalist look. Now offering 1 7/8" L and 1" XL diameters in the thicker 18 gauge. See below.
These earrings are pure 24K gold (not plated) so they are great for sensitive ears in adults, or to put in sore, inflamed ears for healing. Also a great choice if you just want to keep a piercing from closing.
The pair being worn in the photo are the 1.4 cm diameter, 20 gauge size but consider that I have relatively small ear lobes and pierced fairly low on the ears overall. For second holes I recommend the small size as the medium and large are going to stick out too much for most people. Please look closely at the photos trying to convey their actual size on a ruler. It is a bit challenging to convey a totally accurate description without being able to put them into your hands! :)
A head's up about the thicker 18 gauge sizes being offered... this is thicker than most earrings that you will find for sale. Be sure your ear piercing can handle the thicker wire. Mine cannot, they ache after a while. On the plus side, these are much sturdier than the minimalist 20 gauge hoops. If you know your ears won't mind then the 18 gauge is a great choice.
Excellent for second and third, etc..., holes along the edge of your ear. One client of mine collected several sets and wears them stacked along the edge of her lobes for a unique and gorgeous effect.
Perfect for those of us who like to leave their earrings in long term and not fuss with changing them.
Please note that I have 2 size diameters available in the thinner 20 gauge, Mini ~about 10 mm (7/16") across, and Medium~ about 14 mm (1/2") across in diameter, and larger diameters in the 18 ga..
Please see my other, separate listings for larger diameter, heavy hoops in other styles than this handy "hook & eye" closure.
I think it is important to mention that these are very thin, very minimal earrings in the 20 gauge. In all honesty I find them somewhat difficult to get in and out myself, especially the small size. I highly recommend thinking of them as place holders that you leave in long term as they will not hold up to repeated on and off wear the way heavier hoops, especially the hoop-post style earring I make, will. If you can handle the thicker 18 gauge then the larger sizes offered make a great pair pure gold hoops. Basic, minimalist, and very secure with the "hook and eye" closure!
Please contact me if you would like slightly larger, heavier, or graduated versions of these little hoops, or only want to purchase a single earring. Or, if you have any doubts as to whether they will work for you. I would be delighted to accommodate custom requests, and answer any questions!

On every piece of jewelry I make there is a stamp indicating the karat gold from which it is made. If I stamp 24K, then the whole piece is solid 24K....same with items labeled 18K gold.
If the piece is of mixed metals, I try to be very clear with the description, and it will be stamped with both 24K and 18K.
