Shasta - Mixed Metal with dangle
A combination of Gold Filled and Sterling Silver, this is a pair of non-pierced earrings. In the version pictured here Sterling Silver is the dominant metal. All elements made by hand from scratch. A pair of detachable dangles (by way of a clasp as you might find on a necklace or bracelet) on the back of the earrings. This makes for a very unusual, 3 dimensional look. Distinctly left and right earrings. Fits very similar to ear cuffs with the difference that these drop down further along the earwell. Very comfortable to wear. A great alternative to clip-on earrings.
This design can come is several different combinations:
Sterling Silver with Gold Filled spiral (shown here)
All Sterling Silver
Gold Filled with Sterling Silver spiral
All Gold Filled
Listing for this design without the dangle can be found elsewhere on this site.
For those of you unfamiliar with gold filled: we use 14K gold filled. The substantial layer of 14K gold gets heat and pressure bonded onto the brass core. It is strong enough for us to hammer and bend (stretch) the metal without causing the layer to break up. We've been using it for the last 30 years and guarantee it to not wear off.
Every pair of Illuzio earrings comes in a box. The lid is clear for easy identification of its contents. The earrings are mounted on an instruction card with the left and right earrings marked. In case you purchase just a left or a right they'll be marked accordingly. You can reach the diagram by removing the card from the box. The step by step instructions should help you get the earrings on without much trouble. If you’d like a 3D explanation, please visit this video where we demonstrate these steps:
VERY IMPORTANT; if you feel the need to adjust the opening of the earrings please do so in very small increments. You’ll be surprised how little it takes to make a big difference.
