These small earrings each have a single champagne citrine onion-shaped briolette dangling from a goldfill ear wire. These earrings measure just shy of 1 inch (2.5cm) long from the tops of the ear wires.
About goldfill: Goldfill is a wonderful inexpensive alternative to solid gold. Goldfill is not the same as gold plated. A gold plated metal has a very thin layer of gold that was electroplated onto a base metal. Goldfill, however, is made by heat fusing a layer of gold onto a layer of base metal (usually brass). Unlike gold plated metal, the gold on goldfill is unlikely to wear off, because it is more than 100 times thicker. The goldfill wire I used in making these earrings is 12/20. That means that 12kt gold makes up 20% of the volume of the metal.
Citrine is November's birthstone.
