Hoop earrings have been worn throughout history, with the first hoops originating around 2500 B.C.E. near present day Sudan, Africa. They signify unity and wholeness, and of course, nothing says “fashion” like a gorgeous pair of hoops!
These handmade hoops are a bit of a variation on the classic: I’ve attached sunburst half-circles to a circle that dangles from the ear. The half discs represent the sun and its rays and are sure to brighten your day! These sunburst hoop earrings are bold and beautiful, and best of all, they are lightweight to avoid uncomfortably pulling on your ears. Grab a pair in either hypoallergenic gold filled or sterling silver (or both!).

What is gold filled?
14K gold-filled means that multiple layers of solid, 14k gold have been securely pressure bonded to a core of high quality jeweler’s brass.
The US strictly regulates this industry standard, requiring 1/20th, or 5%, gold by weight in all pieces that are considered “gold fill” or “gold filled.”
Gold filled is NOT the same as gold plate or gold-plated. Plated metal is made by dipping any kind of metal in a very thin coating of gold. This is what you will find at the mall and it flakes and wears off quickly.
But normal wear and tear won’t impact your gold filled jewelry. With gold filled, you don’t have to worry about flaking, tarnishing, allergies, or turning your skin green!
