There is nothing more exciting than finding a piece of jewelry that completely melds with your sensibility. The jewelry of Melissa Joy Manning is just that kind of collection, you can trust her pieces are made by hand in her studio in California and NYC using sustainable and recycled materials, locally sourced stones and socially and environmentally responsible practices. These drop earrings are a mix of sterling silver and 14k yellow gold (drop and one hoop is sterling and then two additional hoops are 14k gold) these are very light weight, so very comfortable to wear and the drop is approx. 3cm. I have more photos of this piece if you would like to see more before your purchase feel free to email me.
