14K Gold Post Earrings - Large Omega Clip Earrings

Every woman should have at least one pair of terrific gold post earrings.

Fabricated with tendrils of 14k gold wire and a textured 14k gold center hoop, these intricate 14k gold post earrings feel light and breezy, like your own tropical paradise.

Bold enough to stand alone, these large statement earrings pair well with other designs from the Metal Elements Collection.

  • Post earrings with omega backs, finely crafted in 14k gold.
  • Earrings measure approximately 1.375” (35mm) in diameter.
  • Omega clip backs for a secure fit.
  • See black rhodium and 14k gold here earrings. (pictured on model)
  • Available in 18k vermeil over sterling silver, sterling silver with white rhodium plating for anti-tarnish, and black and gold.
  • Earrings sizes include small 5/8" diameter on post, medium 1" diameter on omega back and large 1.375" on omega back.

Omega earring backs, made by Italian craftsmen, are an evolution of the popular earclips of the 1940s and 50s and take their name from their uncanny resemblance to the Greek letter omega – Ω. When closed over the post the rounded end of the omega back holds to the ear via pressure for a secure fit.

The Edge Collection of rings, earrings and bracelets was inspired by Wabi sabi, an ancient aesthetic philosophy rooted in Zen Buddhism. On holiday in the Maldives, my hotel room had an interesting room divider made from woven twigs and branches. It was asymmetrical yet perfectly balanced with a structure that was both strong structure and free flowing. This was the goal for the Edge collection: to embrace the Wabi sabi philosophy of “beauty in imperfection” with purposeful alterations in symmetry and metal texture while achieving perfect balance.
