Sterling Silver 7mm Friction Ear Nut



Description

This sterling silver friction ear nut features a large, round face that's ideal for supporting larger, heavier earring designs. The zig-zag edge helps keep the earring from rotating while worn and longer wings help 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.

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.
