Sterling silver and 12 Karat Gold Filled.
Post hoop earrings measure approximately 3/4" long and 3/8" wide.
This pair of earrings is a Navajo classic! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo overlay hand crafted, out of genuine sterling silver and 12 karat gold filled. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver or gold. One layer forms the foundation, while the second is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this pair of earrings the second layer creates lovely traditional patterns for a fablous finish. The earrings are stamped sterling, 12KGF, and hallmarked.
12KGF is as good as gold. The color will never fade, change, or wear off. It is 12K gold on top of brass and other metals, which create a gold tone with a finish all the way through. 12KGF behaves the same way as gold.
