These delicate 1.5" hoops are handmade by Natalie in her San Diego studio with 14K gold-filled wire and lightweight natural bead accents. The smaller white beads are made of recycled Ghanaian glass by a process unique to Africa that has been used for over 1000 years. The creamy, off-white beads are handmade in Kenya, Africa from ostrich egg shell. The uniqueness of the beads and the mixed textures is what really sets these hoops apart—a perfect accessory for all of your summer travels.
NOTE: Gold-filled jewelry has a much higher amount of gold in it than gold-plated, making it more valuable (almost 100% more gold than gold-plated jewelry), more durable (won't chip or tarnish), safe for those with metal allergies and longer-lasting (10-30 years).
