These glamorous gold hoop earrings are 18k gold electroplate over brass and made in a matte finish and slight texture similar to gold pieces created in Venice and Florence. These earrings are a classic Italian style earring, but are light-weight so they do not feel heavy on your ear or drag your ear down.
These earrings are made by the Italian jewelry goldsmith company UnoAErre, also known as 1AR. Just like real 18k gold, these earrings, as well as the necklaces and bracelets by UnoAErre, start off slightly brighter and then develop the most beautiful patina over time.
DIMENSIONS: The Large size hoops (shown) are approximately 1⅞" (almost 2") in diameter and the tube is approximately ⅛" in diameter. From the hook, these loops hang down about 2".
For scale, we have shown these large hoops next to the Medium sized hoops (available here), which are about 1½" in diameter. Also, please note the other set of hoop earrings with the shiny finish, so you can compare the texture and appearance.
The metals used are allergy-proof and quality tested. Please avoid direct contact with alcohol and aggressive cleaning agents that may damage the shine and the chromatic characteristics of the jewelry.
WE ALSO CARRY NECKLACES AND BRACELETS IN THE SAME FINISH AS THESE EARRINGS, PLEASE SEE SIMILAR ITEMS AT THE BOTTOM OF PAGE.
UnoAErre Italia is an Italian goldsmith and jewelry company based in Arezzo, in the region of Tuscany.
It was founded in 1926 by Leopoldo Gori and Carlo Zucchi who were two men that started the first goldsmith company in Crezzo. The two men came up with the idea of creating gold jewelry using industrial methodologies to the goldsmith's art, to keep the cost of production down. UnoAErre gets is name from the 1AR identification mark affixed to it's jewelry, 1AR meaning that it is the fist goldsmith company of Arezzo (AR).
1AR's fashion collection of jewelry relies on the impeccable art of traditional Italian craftsmanship in jewelry. Each item is made from brass alloy that is electro-plated with 18K gold, and coated with an acrylic resin that protects the coloring and makes it resistant to scratching.
