Each earring is comprised of three separate Celtic hearts. Each heart was individually pierced and hand sawn from sterling silver. Then they were attached in a vertical row with sterling silver jump rings. Each top heart has a sterling silver post and ear nut on the back. After polishing, the hearts were given a brushed finish. These earrings measure 1 7/8 inches long and 3/8 inch wide (48mm by 8mm). Very lightweight!
