This sterling silver lever-back earring features a wave shape ending at a cup & peg mounting. The earring has a hinged side that securely clicks open and closed. Complete each earring by setting the cup and peg mounting with one half-drilled pearl or gemstone; use jeweler's epoxy to secure. Earrings are plated with rhodium to ensure a durable, tarnish-resistant finish.
• Pearls for cup settings should generally be at least 2mm larger than the cup size.
• 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.
