The Gala Earrings are 14k gold plated.
They are composed of two parts. The first one is the simple earring that you wear on your lobe and the second one is the curved part that comes right under the lobe. There are two different sizes in which you can fix the second part in the first part, so it fits many types of earlobes.
Between the part of the earring that you wear on your ear and the part that is under the lobe there are 0.7 and 0.9 centimeter of space (for the two sizes). The part that is under the lobe is about 1.3 centimeter long.
I recommend not to wear plated earrings in the water. The platting is strong, but it’s not permanent.
Note that on the model pictures, the earrings are in sterling silver.
