This 18-karat yellow gold friction ear nut is medium-weight, ideal for midweight earring designs featuring short drops or dangles. It features a patterned face with decorative scalloped edges. The wings on the back are longer, helping to hold posts more securely. This ear nut secures any post that fits through the hole; simply push the nut onto the post. The friction between the wings holds the earring securely in place.
