These beautiful earrings are made with sterling silver hoops. The larger is about 1" (2 cm) across and the smaller is about 1/2" (1 cm) across. A gorgeous pair! All earrings come in your choice of hooks. Due to allergies some cannot wear sterling hooks so we offer sterling silver, stainless steel, or sterling clip on for those without pierced ears. Please Note: If you purchase stainless hooks the rest of the earring will still come in sterling so the color may not match perfectly.
