These fabulous oversized hoops are made by UnoAErre, circa 1980’s. They feature a twisted look that gives the earrings movement and creates an eye-catching spiral. They are thick-gauge hollow 18k gold, so they are sturdy and won’t dent, but are light enough not to pull on the ear. The hoops open and close with an earring back that threads through a needlelike closure. These are fun and flirty earrings that are great for a vintage look.
UnoAErre is the oldest gold factory in Arezzo, Italy—one of the gold making capitols of the world. They were given the trademark 1AR in 1934, and from then on were known as UnoAErre, “the first in Arezzo.” They have famously high standards for quality, design, and sustainability.
Combined, the earrings weigh 16.6 grams. They are 2 3/8” in diameter, and the gauge thickness is 5.6mm. The earring posts are marked with the UnoAErre maker’s mark, and the Italian marks for 18k gold and Arezzo.
