These earrings are made of a metal double hoop, with 2 added long oval AB Black Twisted Beads. One is stationary in the center of the top, the other moves around the bottom hoop. These earrings measure about 5″ long, but are not heavy considering their size. Because of the length, I don’t recommend them being worn by children under 13 years of age. They are great for any time of year, any occasion, and with any wardrobe.
