Italian Designs with Stefano 14K "Oro Vita" Electroform Florence Lily Earrings

A historic symbol meets modern style! Crafted in 14K yellow gold, these earrings feature a delicate Fleur-de-lis placed above a hammered finish hoop. A unique look for any occasion. The pair measures 1-5/16"L x 15/16"W x 1/4"H with butterfly backings.

The Oro Vita collection within Italian Jewelry Designs by Stefano features a technology that uses an advanced metal forming process called electroforming. In this process, 14K gold is formed into the shape of the jewelry. It is then injected with silicone, creating a piece that is both beautiful and durable.

About the Fleur-de-lis
The "Fleur de Lis" traces its origins to ancient times when the Scythians and Roman empires used the symbol on coins and weaponry. By the 14th century, the symbol gained popularity with the French monarchy and spread across Europe as the Holy Roman Empire established a new reign of Christianity and territories incorporated the symbol into their flags, crests, coats of arms, etc. Fleur de Lis translates from French to "Lily Flower." Today, the fleur de lis endures in the flag of Quebec and the logo of the New Orleans Saints football team.

Earring Back Types

The backing is an important part of an earring, providing a secure closure and comfortable fit. Keep in mind, some earring styles work better with certain back types. Experiment with the different types to find the best fit for you!

Butterfly Back: A double looped piece resembling a butterfly that fits over a post. Variations on this design are called push back clasps. The basic post and butterfly back are usually used for stud earrings and lighter weight drop earrings.

Hinged Snap Backs: This clasp features a hinged post that snaps into a groove on the back of the earring. It is commonly found on hoops. Sometimes the hinged post is curved to provide more room to fit around the ear, sometimes called a saddleback.

Hook Backs: This earring backing is simply a long, bent post that fits through the piercing. Hooks have several variations, most notably the shepherd's hook and the French hook. While thin wire hooks reduce the weight of long earrings, making them more comfortable, they aren't as secure as other clasp styles.

Lever Back: A hinged lever snaps shut against the curved post to form a closed loop around the ear lobe. This clasp is very secure and good for large or medium sized styles that drop just below the ear.

Omega: Also called French clips, this clasp has a straight post and a looped lever. The hinged lever closes around the post and is held against the ear with pressure. The omega clasp is the most secure clasp, especially for the larger, heavier earrings.

Screw back: This backing is a slight variation of the standard post and butterfly nut back. Instead of pushing on the back, the nut twists onto the threaded post. A screw back post design is often preferred for expensive diamond stud earrings that require increased security.
