Keum-boo (also Kum-Boo or Kum-bu, means Korean "attached gold") is an ancient Korean gilding technique used to apply thin sheets of gold to silver, to make silver-gilt. Traditionally, this technique is accomplished by first depleting the surface of sterling silver to bring up a thin layer of fine silver. Then 24 carat gold foil is applied with heat and pressure - mechanical gilding - to produce a permanent diffusion bond.

Each piece is handmade and finished to a high standard. These earrings are perfect choice for minimalists and everyday wear.

Material: Sterling Silver, 24K Gold

Dimensions: 14mm x 14mm plus 11mm pin
(Proportion of gold and size of piece may vary slightly due to the property of handmade)
