One of our most popular items, these are a new take on the hoop earring. Designed by Sikara in all Sterling Silver, these earrings are made to be worn thru the back of the ear so the swirly curl is facing forward. This allows for an earring that does not need a backing to stay on. Some ladies like to wear them the conventional way, front to back, in which case a backing on the earring is necessary to insure they don't come out. Approximately 1-3/4" in diameter.
