George Reed Hoops are made with the edges of four antique silver quarters, two quarters per hoop. Each quarter is cut out and soldered together to form subtle coin hoops utilizing the reeds of quarters. The reeded edges of coins make coin design more intricate and counterfeiting more difficult.
The posts and earring clasp are oxidized sterling silver.
These beautiful and unique earrings are a real conversation starter! Two antique silver Mercury dimes are handcut, opened up, and hooked together to allow both heads to swing freely. The hoops measure 1.5 inches in diameter and are solid silver.
