We've never seen an earring mechanism like this before and it's quite unique, created to give the effect of a pierced hoop earring though it clasps onto an ear that doesn't have to be pierced.
Made of solid 14K yellow gold, these hoop earrings are truly a Modernist twist on this elegant style. The earring has two halves that pivot on a spring loaded connection. One earring side goes one way, the other earring side goes the other way...your ear lobe in the middle is hugged at each side, creating the look of a true pierced-through hoop. They're very comfortable to wear.
The hoop measures 1 1/8 inches across. Together, these weigh 8.5 grams (5.4 dwt.). The inside of the clasp cup is marked 14K with a maker's hallmark and PAT. 2611251. These earrings show minimal wear under magnification...nothing notable. They're in excellent vintage condition. Circa 1970.
