Pearls are another huge part of Vietnamese and Australian heirlooms, so it made sense for us to design an every day pair of hoops that can give a touch of pure elegance, that doesn't compromise comfort and quality. And so Trai was born.
Designer Notes: 'Trai' means 'Pearls' in Vietnamese. Combining the two places I call home makes this beautiful pair of earrings just that more special.
- Size: 15mm click hoops
- 3mm white topaz, highly polished
- Material: 9K Gold-Filled on top of Sterling Silver
- Tarnish resistant, hypoallergenic, safe for sensitive skin
- Made ethically in Mumbai, India
Australian Freshwater Pearls
Sourced from the deep depths of WA blue water, these Australian freshwater pearls are a symbol of femininity, class, and wisdom. Irregular pearls adorn our creations as beauty lies in imperfections.
Gold-filled is the closest alternative to solid gold. Gold filled jewelry has a thick layer of solid gold bonded onto the base layer, usually brass or sterling silver. Compared to gold plated which uses a process of electroplating that quickly dips your jewelry in gold, resulting in a miniscule layer of gold, gold-filled is much more durable and long lasting.
There are 3 basic levels of gold jewelry. Solid gold, gold-filled, and gold plated.
- Solid gold contains the most gold, with 24 karat gold containing 100% gold. Gold-filled jewelry typically contains 5% solid gold in weight, while gold plated contains about 0.001% solid gold in weight.
- The process of making gold filled jewelry is much different to gold plated jewelry. Gold plated uses an electroplating process that quickly dips your jewelry in gold. With gold-filled, the thick layer of gold is pressure bonded onto the base metal, resulting in a very strong and durable ‘plating’.
- Gold-filled lasts 10x more than gold plated, making it hypoallergenic for those who cannot wear gold plated. Longer life times mean you are also producing less waste and saving money over time from having to buy more cheap jewelry.

I got these because I am a fan of hoops, good, and pearls. They are such great quality, dainty, and comfortable. I like to pair them with the Blair textured hoops for a bold look, or the gold 'Ivy' huggie hoops for a more subtle classy look. Love these!
