The design of these earrings is based around the concept of infinity. A circle has no beginning and no end, and through the joining of these two circles we represent the notion of strength, unity and everlasting love.
The larger circle is made from sterling silver wire and the smaller one from 14ct gold-fill. Gold filled wire is composed of a solid layer of gold which is bonded to a base metal - making it a much more affordable option than solid gold.
If you're looking for an extra special gift what could be better than a handmade piece of jewellery that was created just for her! No machines, no production line, just a skilled artisan sitting at a jewellery bench creating a fabulous keepsake that will stand the test of time.
As soon as we receive your order one of our trained silversmiths will begin work on your infinity stud earrings. They will start by measuring out and cutting two equal lengths of 1.5mm sterling silver wire and two equal lengths of 14ct gold-fill wire. Working with a series of hand tools they will then bend and shape the wire into circles and use a combination of solder and flux to join each piece together. Using a rawhide mallet they will then hammer the parts onto a mandrel to make sure they are perfectly round and conform to the correct sizing's for this particular product. The required rings/circles have now been individually handcrafted and now need to be interlinked to form the pendants. This process involves carefully cutting into each ring, connecting them together and once again soldering them closed. A sterling silver ear pin is then soldered onto the back of each handcrafted pendant.
Your item is now ready for the cleaning and polishing stage. The silversmith will use a combination of different sized files and sandpaper grits to make sure all soldered joins are invisible to the eye and smooth to the touch. A buffing wheel in combination with several polishing compounds are then skilfully applied to give your finished earrings their desired finish.
Finally it's off to packaging and dispatch where your item will be given a final polish before being placed in a Pretty Serendipity gift box. As a little added extra we'll also send you a 'thank you' card which includes the name of the jewellery maker who was responsible for the creation of your one of a kind earrings.
