Karen mentioned something strange that was happening in our store; a rush on a collection of gold ball earrings. I was mildly interested. She said they are solid, not hollow, solid. I said you’re kidding, gold ball earrings are hollow, always have been. She told me these are solid and have been flying out of the store. I asked what we are doing to advertise them. She said that we haven’t done anything. I asked to see them and she brought the tray out.
There were six pairs ranging in size from 3mm – 8mm in diameter. Karen said we have been selling them 2 or 3 pairs at a time. Women get a pair, and then two smaller ones for their daughters.
I took one earring off the tray I couldn’t believe it, solid all the way through. I had never seen anything like it. 200 years of jewelry history, never once have I seen a solid gold ball earring. They have always been made hollow. Here were six in a progression of sizes. It makes sense to make them solid. Hollow gold ball earrings, if dropped, dent, if stepped on, crush, even talking on the telephone, hollow gold can dimple and fold. Hollow gold was always a problem. I asked Karen if they were too heavy. I told her to put one pair on the diamond scale. Karen said no, they are not too heavy. I was surprised though, the 8mm pair weighed 16 carats. That seemed heavy. I asked Karen to weigh the turquoise and gold earrings she was wearing. She put them on the scale. 78 carats, proving that all of our new gold ball earrings are an ideal weight for all day wear.
Although we’ve never done this before, and because they are solid, we’ve decided these new solid gold earrings now come with a lifetime guarantee against crushability because they are simply indestructible.
I’ve never seen anyone ever make solid 14K gold ball earrings. It makes sense though, a brilliant idea the world was waiting for. I’m just surprised no one had ever thought of it before now. They are beautiful gold orbs that now come with a lifetime guarantee.
