This sterling silver friction ear nut is medium-weight, ideal for most earring designs, and features a smooth oval face with a bright finish. 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.
Accommodates post sizes: .027"–.030"
• Friction ear nuts secure the post by the tension between the wings, not by the hole size, so that it will hold any post that fits through the hole.
• 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.
