Ancient goldsmiths were masters of the forge. Jewelry making from thousands of years ago echoes through the work of today's goldsmiths. These hammered 22 karat gold hoop are hand formed using the same techniques; forging and granulation. Granulation was used as embellishment in ancient times and is done today by a relatively small number of goldsmiths.
Granulation takes years of practice using the purest of metals. Each tiny granule is made by hand and making enough for one piece of jewelry can take weeks. Each granule is then placed one by one on the piece with a tiny brush. The piece is heated almost to the melting point. At that precise moment, the granules fuse and become one with the item being granulated.
A classic design with a modern twist, these earrings will be elegant and understated wherever you choose to wear them.
