A sleek and simple everyday style, these delicate open hoop earrings are based on a pair of hoop earrings from ancient Persia which are over 2,000 years old. They originate from Susa, one of the oldest cities in the world. Artifacts discovered at the site with the earrings include carved cylinder seals, jewelry, clay balls and clay tablets with inscriptions recording business transactions, political history and mathematical calculations. Earrings like these were found amongst the relics and have been recreated and reimagined for modern times.

CARE: Most metals will naturally patina over time, however, there are measures you can take to prolong the life of your jewelry. We recommend removing all jewelry prior to showering, swimming, cleaning, or applying lotions or oils. If your jewelry begins to appear a dull or darkened, it can be gently polished with a soft jewelry cloth like Sunshine, with a non-abrasive jewelry cleaner, or a natural dish soap and a soft-bristled toothbrush. Storing in an air-tight container will prolong the life of your jewelry, and protect it from environmental tarnish.
