Description

These reticulated Sterling silver (crinkled) post earrings are light weight, but not light on class. 


Reticulation of silver involves heating a sheet of silver up to 10 times to oxidize the copper at the surface, then pickling to remove the oxide and leave a thin layer of pure metal. This process-called depletion gilding-results in different melting temperatures between the surface and the interior of the sheet. Once the sheet is gilded, it is heated with a torch: The alloy in the interior flows before the surface metal does. The result is that the surface wrinkles.

Earring measures 1.75 inches from top to bottom.
