I have been using the #11 earwire for several years. At my wife's suggestion I went with #01 because it was sturdier. They are much better at keeping their shape. A little more expensive but I think they are definitely worth it.
These are my go-to earwires. Inexpensive and very easy to use. The cost is the overriding factor in purchasing these. No sense of spending a lot of money on earwires when it is what is hanging from it that matters!
I have been using these for 3+ years! They are the perfect size and length, so they do not fall out (although, you can use the rubber clutches with these, for extra security - which are great too). These hang really nice and comfortably. Simple, so you can embellish them with anything. Bright silver....they really shine. Perfect! Great quality! I highly recommend these! :)
I was a bit worried ordering these thinking they would be too long at the back and might poke but they are great. They are very versatile and are suited to most designs. The backs are a bit longer and this helps to stop them from accidentally popping out. Mine only measured 24mm long at the back and about 16mm long at the front. The only thing that keeps these from being a 5 is that some (not all) come a bit crooked due to shipping/handling and all you have to do is re-shape slightly. Not a bit deal.
I purchased 150 of these earwires and received a mess of bent, misshapened, mismatched earwires. I have to dump the whole package and sift through them to find 2 earwires that match in size and shape! Ridiculous! Also I have had them break when trying to open the loop. A total waste of money not recommended for anyone. Not worth the cost of shipping to send them back.Kat,
Thanks for letting us know about this. We really appreciate your feedback. Sterling silver earwires like these can be somewhat soft and have slight variances in shape. These differences however generally occur on the back side of the earwire and will not be noticeable when worn. Of course, we want you to be 100% satisfied with every purchase and will gladly provide a full refund for any earwires you wish to return.
