Sterling Silver Medium-Weight Friction Ear Nuts



Description

This medium-weight sterling silver ear nut features a textured face that helps prevent earrings from turning when worn. The wings on the back of the ear nut are longer, helping to 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.
