Highest-quality, lush green onyx gemstones sparkle and shine in this pair of Iris earrings. The stones are micro-faceted, so their sparkle is truly dazzling! They are suspended from handmade horseshoe-shaped components, which have been textured so they sparkle as well. These earrings are 14kt gold-fill and they measure 1 7/16" long including the handmade ear wires.

What does gold-filled mean?
Gold-filled components start with a base metal core and have a (usually 14kt) real gold coating, bonded to the core with heat and pressure. The component must be at least 5% gold by weight. This is NOT the same as gold plating. Unlike plated gold, gold-filled items are likely to last a lifetime and the gold will not wear off.
