Sterling silver and argentium hoop with malachite
The intense green of malachite adds an unforgettable detail to the minimalist shape of this hoop. While very easy to both put on and take off, this earring will become a staple of your look and you will hardly ever take it off.
This hoop is available in recycled sterling silver and argentium.
Sterling silver (925) tends to oxidate over time and needs occasional polishing. The sterling silver used is recycled and these hoops are sustainable and eco-friendly.
Argentium (935) has higher silver content and is less likely to oxidate.
