Sterling Silver Leaf 7.5mm Pearl Cap Component Mounting



Description

This sterling silver component mounting features a pearl cup with a leaf and a twisted peg; it is ideal for creating a pearl pendant or pearl earring drops. Set the mounting with one half-drilled pearl or bead (7.5mm, max.). Use jeweler’s epoxy to secure the bead or pearl on the peg; the twisted peg provides more surface area for the epoxy, helping to create a stronger connection.

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.
