This sterling silver post earring features a round bezel cup mounting. Set with one 4mm round cabochon or flat-back stone; place your stone in the bezel and push the walls inward over the stone, holding it in place. For added security, place a drop or two of jeweler's epoxy in the cup before placing the stone. The friction ear post has a groove to help seat the clutch (or earring back) . Post earrings require an ear nut to keep the post in place (available separately).
• 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.
