HOW THEY’RE MADE: Each gemstone is wrapped by hand with 14K gold filled wire which is then formed into the ear wire and hammered for strength. Gold filled wire is a hollow tube of 14 karat gold that is filled with brass for durability, so all the metal outside is 14K gold; gold filled wire will not wear off like gold plating and will last a lifetime.
CARE: Malachite has a Mohs hardness of 3.5-4. Do not use harsh chemicals or clean in ultrasonic cleaners. Always remove earrings before swimming or showering.
