Regular price $11.70

Shipping calculated at checkout.

I made these 2" leaf ear wires using 14/20 gold filled wire. The ends have been rounded and smoothed for a nice comfortable fit.  These are made using 20g or 18g wire.  If you tend to be hard on your jewelry and don't mind a thicker gauge, I would recommend the heavier 18g wire.

Approximate Measurements:
Length: 2" (50mm)
Width: 15/16" (24mm)

Wire Gauges:
20g wire: 0.8mm thick
18g wire: 1mm thick

These are sold by the pair.

If you need a larger quantity than what is available, please contact me so that arrangements can be made. Please note, I make these earring hooks by hand, there may be some slight variations from pair to pair.

Why I choose to use 14/20 gold filled and what it means:
Gold filled is made by using heat and pressure to fuse a layer of solid Gold onto a base metal (usually brass). I use 14/20 gold filled wire to create my pieces. What that means is that 1/20 (5%) of the metal weight is 14 karat solid gold, the same applies to 12/20 gold filled, which would contain 1/20 (5%) of 12 karat gold and so on.. I choose to work with 14/20 gold filled because of it's beautiful rich color and the fact that is wears just like real gold. It has beauty, durability, and strength. It is a quality alternative to solid gold at an affordable price.
