Sterling Silver 3mm Pearl Component Mounting
Alternate Text Sterling Silver 3mm Pearl Component Mounting



Description

This sterling silver component mounting features a pearl cap & peg mounting with an attach ring. Attach an ear wire for an earring drop, or add a bail and string it onto a chain, cord or strung necklace for a charm or pendant. Use jeweler’s epoxy to secure the bead or pearl on the peg; the textured peg provides more surface area for the epoxy, helping to create a stronger connection.

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.
