If you are looking for a small hoop that does not get lost on the ear, this earring is the perfect choice. At just over 1/2" long, these earrings hug the ear beautifully and substantial gold weight really makes the sapphires pop! These earrings are dazzling. Not overly fussy, not covered in diamonds, just beautiful high quality cornflower blue, Ceylon sapphires are set in a shared prong setting on the front of each earring. The gold is textured on both the front and back, so these earrings are finished beautifully.
