Sapphire Electroformed Earring Hoops
These showstopping hoops are crafted with raw sapphires and ready to wear for any occasion. Hoop size: ~1.5 inches (length and width). This listing is for one pair of earrings per order. Each piece is handmade (by me!) from start to finish through a crafting and electroform process. Each piece takes a week or more to craft. All pieces posted are already made and are ready to ship. The process I use makes each piece totally unique and no two pieces will be exactly the same. The primary metal is copper which has been electroformed onto the piece and sealed to preserve the color. Electroforming is a process that uses electrical currents to “grow” the copper onto the piece. The metal has been sealed and to best maintain the color of the piece, keep your piece free of chemicals and avoid prolonged exposure to water and sweat. You can gently polish your piece and reseal but avoid sealing the stone. The back of the earring posts and hooks are stainless steel, hypoallergenic, and come with backing. Your piece is wearable art! To preserve the quality of your item, avoid exposing your piece to harsh chemicals or submerging in water. Remove your piece before showering and sleeping. Avoid dropping your piece to protect the stones. All pieces are shipped in a jewelry bag inside a cardboard jewelry box with a jewelry care card. This is all packed in a bubble mailer with tissue paper. The jewelry bag is stamped with my cat's face, Garcia. I hope you enjoy your piece as much as I enjoyed creating it for you.
