Victorian style earrings made of sterling oxidized silver and 14k gold closures set with 16 little sapphires. (0.16c) and 2 labradorites. *I'm using 14k gold for the closures because it's healthier to the earlobe and stronger than silver. The size of the earrings is about: Full Length 2.2cm , 0.86 in. Diameter of the earrings is about: 1.5cm, 0.60 in. * Oxidized silver is a process that many jewelers use to design sterling silver to a black patina. It gives the jewelry a character or antique look. The process consists of taking clean sterling silver and using a chemical solution named sulphur to treat it to speed up the tarnishing effect. It doesn't make any damage to the sterling silver and it always can be revised to classic white silver look. this is the reason why I love making jewelry of sterling silver it can be in many variations of designs, structure and colors.
