A lovely, larger but lightweight, silver hoop earring made of sterling silver in the shape of a half moon, just like all arracadas, but the inside is very lightly filled with filagree. The sterling silver is shiny. The shape is the traditional crescent and it is decorated with three "gotes" or silver drops. These are a little more simple than most filagree arracadas but elegant. Lovely.
Arracada earrings naturally sit slightly angled in the earlobe. It's not the hole in your ear! They are supposed to be slightly angled and not exactly perpendicular to your head. For that reason, you may be able to see the back side of the earring when you are looking in the mirror.
