Sterling Silver 4mm Round Snap-Set™ Buttercup Post Earring Mounting



Description

This sterling silver post earring features a delicate buttercup design and a Snap-Set™ mounting that holds one 4mm round faceted gemstone. Snap-Set mounts are perfect for inexpensive gemstones and are quick and easy to set; lay the stone facedown and position the mounting over the stone. Press gently on the mounting and the prongs snap into place, securing the stone. Some adjustments may need to be made, especially on hand-cut stones. The friction post features a groove that helps provide the most secure and comfortable fit; post earrings require an ear nut to keep the post in place.

Please Note: 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.
