Two types of 14k yellow gold wire, twist rope and straight, come together in this vintage set of "Creole" hoop earrings. I love the way they twirl around and hug each other, thus creating an eye-catching, wide "ribbon" effect. Easy to wear with its snap closure, this is a pair that will hold its own whatever the occasion. The earrings are 1 1/4" long by approx. 1" wide (at their widest) and weigh 4.4 grams (for the set). They are marked "14k" and though it is difficult to date them with accuracy, I would suggest post-1990. The pair is in excellent vintage condition, with good size and weight and a pleasing to the eye combination of two different finishes in the gold wire, with no damage and no repairs noted.
