9CT GOLD 2MM WIDE SLEEPERS
Ah nostalgia... Hoping these will be popular given the current revival of everything 90s - I saw a teenager beatboxing in a bucket hat earlier and wanted to ruffle his acne - he had no idea how retro he was!
I digress; these are 9ct Gold Sleeper hoops, constructed of a hollow Gold tube 2mm wide. Various diameters are available from a diminutive 10mm up to a shoulder-grazing (and new this month) 70mm. Probably wouldn't attempt to sleep in those.

Your earrings are presented in a Christine Alexander branded recycled gift box.
In medieval times gold was considered good for your health, following the belief that something so beautiful and rare had to be good for you. I read recently that over 98% of all of the gold ever mined on our planet is believed to still be in circulation today. As gold effectively acts as a currency and can easily be melted down and converted to cash, this is the main reason why there is so little heritage jewellery that has survived the centuries. It’s not that gold is not durable; it is just the case that very few pieces have survived the various depressions and recessions. Once gold pieces are converted to cash, they are normally melted, sold as bullion and then eventually resold to jewellers to manufacture back into jewellery. There is every chance that somebody reading this is wearing an item of gold jewellery, from which a portion of the metal in the piece was once worn by royalty.
