~ Welcome to my shop, Toba Brighton ~ an independent, gemstone Jewellery boutique based in Brighton, UK.
~ Every piece is made with love, using the highest quality, long lasting materials and delicate Jewellery making techniques.
~ Toba jewellery is always sent gift wrapped in responsibly sourced, recyclable packaging. I'm also very happy to add personalised, handwritten notes in your order. I believe it's these little touches that set etsy shops apart and I love to do everything I can to make your order as special as possible.

~ Lapis lazuli 'infinity hoops'
~ A stone that inspires confidence, creativity, encourages self-expression and reveals inner truth. It enhances qualities of honesty, compassion and morality to the personality.

~ These hoops are lightweight and extremely durable, made in your choice of sterling silver, 14k gold filled. *(Filled actually means the same as 'plated', however the quality and longevity is far superior to regular plating. The core of anything referred to as 'filled' is always sterling silver and coated with a thick real 14k gold or rose gold plating).
~ To put them in, they open at the hinge. Take care to hold the detachable charm as you do this. Place the fine sterling silver post comfortably through the ear, pull the hoop gently open and position the fine post into the hollow tube. Once in, feel free to squeeze the hoops for a furthermore secure fit. I find these to be the most comfortable and secure style of hoop earrings that I have tried (and i've tried lots!) I hope you love them too!
~ Each pair of Lapis Lazuli beads is carefully selected to match beautifully. These stunning, natural gemstones are a stunning navy/royal blue tone with beautiful flecks of gold.
~ I then use your choice of 0.6mm sterling silver or gold plated tarnish resistant copper wire to encase the beads in their characteristic 'infinity' wire wrapping style to create a charm.
~ These charms are detachable, resulting in a wonderfully versatile pair of hoop earrings. You can also purchase other gemstone charms from my shop, allowing you to interchange your charm (or add more than one).

~ 15mm hoops (2mm thickness)
~ 6mm gemstones
~ 0.6mm wire
C A R E A D V I C E
~ These hoops are extremely comfortable and care be worn every day (and night).
~ To preserve the quality of the gold filled hoops and wire, I recommend that these not be worn in water as this can weaken the wire wrapping over a long period of time. Sterling silver is actually fine to wear in water, but since these hoops have delicate charm attachments, I would advise not.
~ These materials may naturally oxidise (darken) over a long period of time. To polish, use a glass or silver polish cloth to gently buff the surface. Natural soap may also be used, but try not to add chemicals to the surface wherever possible.
