90% Silver State Quarter Hoop Earrings. These earrings are handmade using actual United States 90% silver proof quarters. They are then soldered with sterling silver earwires and backings. Because of the high silver content of these coins these earrings will never irritate your skin. We offer these hoops in 2 sizes - 1" or 1 1/4". These earrings make great travel souvenirs, going away gifts or just a unique conversation starter. Carry a piece of your favorite state with you everywhere you go with these truly unique earrings!
To make these coin hoop earrings we use 2 silver quarters. To create them we punch the center out of the coins and then form the outer piece into hoops. We are left with the center punch outs of the coins which still contain details unique to that quarter design. These center punch outs measure 17mm and will always be the center 13mm of that State quarter. We love using the whole coin and have created add on items to accompany these earrings.
More information about the State quarters: State quarters were produced from 1999-2008, with 5 States produced per year. Each State features a unique design on the reverse (tails) of the quarters, while the obverse design features George Washington and the words “United States of America,” “Quarter Dollar,” “Liberty,” and “In God We Trust”.
NOTE: These are completely handmade, no two items are exactly alike nor are they perfect. Antique finish is on the surface of the coin and will wear away with time, when it is worn away you can polish your ring with a regular jewelry polishing cloth for a classic polished look. Punch out items are only included if you add them to your purchase.
