These tiny thin gold hoops are the perfect pair of hoop earrings for your collection. Made from 14 Karat gold filled wire, and flattened, these delicate gold-filled hoops are timeless! My gold fill hoops are simple, distinctive, elegant, and they have no clasp! These beautiful earrings measure 1.0 inches in diameter. Each of my gold fill hoop earrings are made from 14 KT gold filled wire, making these hoops elegant and economical. Gold filled wire is created by bonding a layer of 14 Karat gold onto a jeweler's brass core. The gold will not flake or peel off as happens with gold plating. Reverse hoops are a little different than most hoops. The gold hoops are designed to be clasp-less. They are worn by inserting the hoop earrings into the back of your earlobe and gently tugging it forward. Each gold hoop has a catch on the back of the hoop to stop the hoop from going all the way through your piercing. These elegant thin hoops are lightweight and designed for a standard piercing. This means they will not tear or stretch your earring holes.
