These Korean earrings are our newest in our Korean line., The earrings were hand cut from a 10 won coin that was minted in South Korea from 1959 – 1961. The design that was used on the coins was of the Rose of Sharon flower which is important in the Korean culture. These earrings are a great size measuring 5.8″ in diameter so are a nice touch and not over powering . Very light also! After we do all the hand cutting work the earrings are plated in our 14 karat gold and rhodium finish to bring out the best of the design. The earrings are mounted on 14 karat gold filled ear wires.
