Ancient inspired fractured hoops designed to represent sumptuous shields worn for ceremonial purposes during the Renaissance by heroes of classical antiquity. Formed using the process of lost wax casting, these glossy earrings are fractured and irregular to represent armour that has been excavated and restored.
Handmade in Vancouver from 24K Gold Vermeil (which is 3 microns thick of 24K gold plated sterling silver). Butterfly and stud closures for pierced ears. Hoops measure 2cm in diameter. Hoops measure 1cm at the widest point.
