These 18ct. gold plated Swirl Hoop earrings are part of the Renaissance Rebel Collection, an award winning trilogy inspired by the life and style of the legendary 18th century French courtesan Madame de Pompadour. Designed and produced by Rosie Sanders, the UK Jewellery Awards 'New Designer of the Year' 2015, this hand carved rococo inspired hoop measures 37mm x 37mm and is crafted in sterling silver. They come beautifully presented in a powder blue gold embossed gift box and are UK hallmarked. The multi award winning Renaissance Rebel collection showcases a range of subversive statement pieces and tiny trinkets for contemporary style adventurers made to the highest possible standards. Keep plated items away from chemical substances including hairspray, deodorants, soaps, perfumes and chlorines. Use a polishing cloth for gold plated jewellery to lightly buff the metal and to restore shine to the surface and remove any discolouration.
