These beautiful earrings are lightweight and easy to wear for pierced ears. The French wire is also copper and holds the 1 3/4" rounds of copper. The design is hand stamped in a traditional design. (We do have two more pairs, slightly larger, so check out the other earrings!) The opening in the disc is 1/2". These Navajo earrings are handmade by a Native American artist and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
