A sparkly embellishment and interesting shape take ho-hum hoops to a new level. Plump, purply blue rondelles of tanzanite capped by shiny sterling silver organic drops and wrapped on ball end head pins give the right amount of decoration to my hand-forged petal shaped sterling silver hoops. The tanzanite is sparkly and the faceting gives them extra shimmer, bouncing light back and forth. The hoops are hammered for strength, texture and shape retention. They are self closing for ease of wear. If desired, the gemstone charms can be slipped off and the hoops worn by themselves. This makes them a versatile travel pair of earrings, giving you two looks.
The hoops themselves measure about 1-1/2 inches in length, and about 1-1/4 inch wide. The tanzanite and silver charms then extend 1/2 inch below, the total length being about 2 inches overall. They are modeled on a mannequin for size reference. The pair will be packaged with care in a gift box and tied up with a colorful ribbon.
