Our best selling hoop, and for good reason. The pico hoops is made up of a half round wire, not too thin and not too wide. The goldilocks of hoops.
What makes these hoops so special? We have soldered 8k solid gold onto the tip of the hoops. That way the base metal underneath doesn't show and tarnish over time. However, because they are made by hand some variation will occur. In this case, use the polishing cloth provided to shine it back up.

Everything comes packaged in our 100% cotton pouches. We try and minimize the amount of packaging as best we can, while also keeping your new items safe. If you'd like a box you can get one here.
All fine jewelry, engagement rings, and ceremony rings include a gift box.
All our jewelry is made at our studio on Salt Spring Island. Due to the handmade nature of our pieces there can be slight variation from one another.

Gold filled consists of a base metal (usually brass, which is a mixture of copper and zinc) bonded with a layer of karate gold over top. Gold filled is legally required to contain 5% or 1/20 gold by weight. All the gold filled jewelry that we carry is 14k yellow gold filled, with the exception of our 12k gold filled beaded bracelets. Meaning, all the gold that is bonded was 14k solid gold to begin with. This can be described as either 14/20 gold filled, or 14k gold filled.
Our sterling silver contains 92.5% pure silver, and 7.5% copper. Sometimes other compaines will have other metals besides just copper in that 7.5%, ours does not.
We use 10K or 14K gold throughout our collections. 10k gold contains 41.7% pure gold and 14k contains 58.3% pure gold. 10k gold is stronger than 14k gold. Other metals have been added to pure gold to strengthen it.
