This sterling silver lever-back ear wire features a shield design with an eye-catching diamond-cut texture; the design gives the earring a more substantial look while adding only minimal weight to the earring. Use the open ring to easily attach drops or dangles. A hinged closure helps protect against loss and makes this earring a snap to put on. A short length of open channel perfectly sized to accommodate the wire. Simply insert the wire and close the lever over it to secure the earring in place.
