This sterling silver ear post features a 5mm pad that supports a variety of settings, findings and unique designs—simply use jeweler's epoxy or soldering techniques to secure the elements to the pad to complete the earring. The friction post features a groove that helps secure the ear nut; post earrings require an ear nut to keep the post in place.
• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling findings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
