These lightweight 2.3/4" hoops are in gold color finish with AB crystals wrapped around all the way around the ring. Crystal (often known as Crystal Clear) is completely colorless. A Crystal (clear) bead is completely transparent. Crystal AB, on the other hand, uses the same base stone or bead, but has an added coating which reflects many different colors, primarily gold, blue and pink. The leaver backing, are easy peazy to put on and take off.
