Loop Button Earrings with Cut Clips are hand cast in sterling silver under 18KT gold vermeil. These snaky loops are cast in a "green" gold (rather then brassy) that looks good on all skin tones. The open design gives them a distinctly different, lighter look then most clip earrings. They are hollow so they will not weight your ears down and they are some of the most comfortable clip earrings we have come across. We have been carrying this artist for years and can say these timeless pieces hold up beautifully year after year. They are made n the USA.
