These earrings are made of recycled sterling silver. Every piece of Sofia Maria jewellery is hand-crafted out of recycled metals where possible - with the exception of the Italian chains - and all leftover scrap metal is reused for new designs.
The Caroline Hoops by Sydney-based sustainable jewellery brand Sofia Maria are as unique as they are alluring. These ethically-made statement hoops have a beautiful jagged detail, are hand carved in wax before being cast in recycled sterling silver, and will take your sustainably-made jewellery game to a whole new level.
Please note: this product is a made-to-order item, so please allow up to four weeks for creation time and shipping to occur. Good things come to those who wait!

Behind the Brand
Sofia Maria is the namesake jewellery label by Sydney-based artist Sofia Maria Tomasella. The pieces Sofia Maria creates aren’t just stunning heirlooms that mark life’s sentimental moments, they’re also hand-crafted slowly, locally and consciously from recycled materials, and any leftover scraps are re-used for the new stunning designs.

Shipping and Returns
Please note: because Sofia Maria includes made-to-order pieces, there may be up to a 15 day wait for the jewellery to be made. All Sofia Maria purchases are final sale and cannot be returned unless damaged or faulty.
Standard items must be returned within 14 days of purchase. Sale items are final sale unless damaged or faulty. Faulty items must be returned within 5 days of purchase.
We do not cover the cost of return postage, so please try to choose the correct sizing. We’ve done our absolute best to provide as much sizing information as possible, though do feel free to send us an email if you need help.
All standard items will be sent within 48 hours of your order being received. To allow for creation time, made-to-order pieces will be posted within 10-14 business days, dependent on the respective brand.
Please note some brands operate out of Australia, while others from Aotearoa, New Zealand. This may mean that a little bit of patience would be required if the packages are coming from international waters, and also if you live rurally.
All shipping is free for orders over $75. If your order is under $75, there is a $12.50 flat rate.
To our friends outside of Australia and New Zealand, please note that we do not currently ship worldwide due to a range of factors, though mainly due to the package delays brought about by the COVID pandemic. We do, however, have a global ethical brand directory for both our local and international friends.
