Wire is measured using the Brown and Sharp standard to refer to thickness as gauge, in this case, 0.51 inches or 1.29 mm, for 16ga. Most hook earrings are usually 20 gauge that would be 0.03 inches or 0.081 mm. These hoops really are bold at almost twice the thickness of the 20 gauge earrings. Gem Bliss hammer textured Bronze wire has been forged into 2 inch, slightly elongated, balloon oval hoop earrings. You can get two looks from one pair of artisan earrings by adding the charms. Jewelers' Bronze is a Copper alloy with the look of high carat gold. Over human history it has been used by many cultures. Bronze develops a patina, but does not oxidize like pure copper.
