I made these hammered spiral earring hooks using 20 gauge 14/20 gold filled wire. They have been hand formed and then slightly hammered flat.  The ends have also been rounded and smoothed for a nice comfortable fit.

Approximate Measurements:
Height: 3/4" (19mm)
Top Width: 1/2" (10mm)
Approx. bottom spiral width: slightly smaller than 1/4" (5mm)

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.
