This sterling silver earring mounting features an open heart design set with a 1.5mm CZ at the tip of the heart. A pearl peg holds one half-drilled pearl or gemstone bead. Trim the peg if needed and use jeweler’s epoxy to secure the bead or pearl on the peg to complete the pendant. The twisted peg increases the surface area for the epoxy and provide a more secure hold. The friction post features a groove that helps provide maximum hold when inserted into ear nut (included). This earring is plated with rhodium to ensure a durable, tarnish-resistant finish.
