Gold Hoop Earrings: An Endless Tradition
December 29, 2008 by Tierra Wilson
Somewhere between 2,500 and 3,000 BC in Iraq someone was buried in a royal grave with hoop earrings on, leading us to the oldest earrings ever unearthed by archeologists. It is rather fascinating that hoop earrings for women continue to be a fashion staple in wardrobes around the world. Maybe we will never discern why the world is spellbound with hoop earrings; maybe it’s the endlessness and versatility of the circle, or the elegant arches of made possible by gold jewelry? Whatever the reason, Apples of Gold Jewelry has a number of ways to tastefully and elegantly incorporate design gold hoop earrings into your wardrobe.
A grand statement can be made with Apples of Gold Hammered Hoop Earrings. These elegant 14K gold hoop earrings gets its name from the intricate hammer like design lovingly applied to the 22.5 mm diameter hoop. Each hammer-like imprint reflects light at different angles creating a sparkling motif.
Another choice is the Flat Italian Hoop Earrings which make a gallant statement using sheer size and elegance. Created entirely of 14K yellow gold, these Flat Italian Hoop Earrings measure at 1 3/4 inches wide and 3mm thick creating a great and stunning silhouette.
Lastly, for the boldness of the Hammered Hoop Earrings and the size of the Flat Italian Hoop Earrings, another superb choice would be Apple of Gold’s Beaded Hoop Earrings. These hoop earrings are made of 14K gold beads that complete the hoop which measures 1 1/4 inches in diameter and 2mm thick. Weighing approximately 2.6 grams, these Beaded Hoop Earrings close with a secure latch and provide a lovely and slender side view.
It’s a pleasure to consider that each piece of jewelry we wear today was influenced by the struggles and lifestyles of our ancestors; and each piece of jewelry worn tomorrow will be influenced by us.
