Vintage Sterling Silver Etched Hoop Pierced Earrings - Hollow Hoops - #c839
These wonderful hoop earrings are comprised of fine sterling silver. They feature raised ear wires with large hoops at the bottoms. The hoops are hollow, three-dimensional and have been decorated with lovely etched designs. The finish is a mix of smooth and textured silver. The ear wires open on one side and swivel to the side to assist with putting the earrings on and taking them off. They are large, but since they are hollow, they are quite lightweight and comfortable to wear. They are so pretty!

The hoops measure about 1 1/4 inches in diameter, have a 1 11/16 inches drop including the ear wires and are 1/8 inch wide. They weigh 7.0 grams. They are not hallmarked but acid tested as sterling silver. 

These superb silver hoops would be right at home with jeans and tee or with a nice suit, making them quite versatile! The wonderful etched designs are so beautiful and really set these earrings apart from plain silver hoops. The earrings are in good vintage condition. One hoop does have a very small hole in the center of the back (photo #8). I believe the hoops consisted of two sides that were joined together and soldered and this small hole appears to be an area that was skipped during the soldering process. Since it's in the back, it really isn't seen and doesn't detract, but the earrings have been discounted for this issue. They are truly lovely!
