This sterling silver lever-back ear wire features an angular profile with a tapered, knife's-edge contour and a pinch bail designed to hold a front-drilled briolette, bead or finding, up to 5mm in dia. The pinch bail has a rounded teardrop shape and flares slightly outward, presenting an eye-catching contrast to the ear wire design. 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.
• 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.
