This sterling silver component features a filigree design within a teardrop-shaped frame. The open styling makes it lightweight and easy to wear, an ideal choice for a pendant or earring. Attach a bail to the fixed ring at the top of the teardrop then slide onto a chain or cord to create a necklace; attach to an ear wire to create an earring. This component is oxidized to accentuate the design.
• 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.
