Black and 14k Gold Edge Post Earrings - Large, Omega Clip

These 14k gold and black rhodium earrings are light and breezy. Bold enough to stand alone, these hoop earrings will quickly become your favorite escape from the ordinary and they also pair well with other designs from the Metal Elements collections.

  • Post earrings with omega backs, finely crafted in black rhodium over sterling silver and 14k gold.
  • Earrings measure approximately 1.375” (35mm) in diameter.
  • Omega clip backs provide a secure fit.
    Combining the vibrancy of 14k gold with the deep tones of Black Rhodium, these stunning Black and Gold Edge Earrings earrings deserve the perfect, secure earring back -- our "omega backs" are made by Italian craftsmen.
    Omega backs 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. The ends of the looped finding attach to the earring via a hinge. When closed over the post the rounded end of the omega back holds to the ear via pressure for a secure fit.
    Experiencing colors, textures and shapes in nature, and cities small and large, has always inspired my designs, as have philosophies like Wabi Sabi.
    What is Wabi Sabi?
    Wabi sabi, an ancient aesthetic philosophy rooted in Zen Buddhism, inspired the Edge Ring. Wabi Sabi is a ritual of purity and simplicity in which masters prized handmade bowls that were irregularly shaped, with uneven glaze and cracks, creating beauty in deliberate imperfection. Edge Rings embrace this philosophy of “beauty in imperfection” with purposeful alterations in symmetry and metal texture while achieving perfect balance, celebrating the uneven, asymmetrical and always curved lines of wabi sabi.
    Edge Earrings are also available in 14k gold, 18k vermeil over sterling silver, and sterling silver with white rhodium plating for anti-tarnish.
