Large Ethnic Copper Blue Rustic Hoops – Earrings | Tinklet Jewelry


These large, bold copper hoops have been aged to a rustic blue. They are definitely a statement pair of earrings that will get you noticed. Perfect for summertime fun, rock them with a floppy hat, jeans, and a tee.

Tribal in style, these lovelies are constructed from 14-gauge copper wire. The wire is hammered and each ring varies in size to create the overlap look.

The blue patina look is achieved through a chemical reaction created with salt and ammonia. Once the desired look is achieved, we seal the copper to protect the finish insuring the longevity of the item.

This pair will sway with movement and you are likely to feel them brushing your jawline. They measure 3 ¼ inches long and are just under 2 ½ inches wide at the widest point. They have a medium weight to them but are still comfortable on the ear.

Each pair is unique, please allow for slight differences.

These earrings arrive wrapped in tissue paper inside of a burlap bag, perfect for gift giving.

Thank you for visiting our little shop


IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling silver by
  • Keep sterling silver in airtight packages, (Ziplocs should work fine)
  • Use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals. We use the tabs below and now include (2 - 4) tabs with copper and sterling silver purchases.

 tarnish tabs
  • Store metals in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.

To maintain the shine or antiquing: 
• Keep your copper jewelry clean
• Store it in an airtight container or bag away from heat and moisture
• Wipe regularly with a polishing cloth to prevent dirt build-up

Additional Information:

PLEASE NOTE: When copper comes in contact with human skin and can interact with air, perspiration and other chemicals, such as bath soaps, body lotions, and makeup, and  sunscreen, the oxidation (patina) process can accelerate and that causes the copper to turn brownish, green or bluish-green, and stain the skin of some individuals

This reaction will vary according to an individual's body chemistry, both in how long it takes for the green discoloration to form and in how pronounced the color becomes.
Some people, such as myself, experience no discoloration at all, other people maybe not so much.
It is important to note that the discoloration is not harmful to your health, nor is it anywhere near permanent and is easily washed off with soap and water. If not washed off, it is normally absorbed by the body overnight.

Because this potential reaction is not to be unexpected by customers, we do not offer Refunds if the reason is "Because It turns my skin green."
