This sterling silver earring post features a 5 x 3mm oval bezel mounting with a decorative, serrated edge. Set with one cabochon using traditional bezel setting techniques. For additional security, add jeweler's epoxy to the bottom of the cup before placing your stone. The friction post features a single groove to help secure the ear nut (not included).
• After setting your stone(s) in this mounting, finish or polish as necessary to complete your earring.
• 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.
