I adore the style and weight of these Hill Tribe ear wires! The loop and ball are perpendicular to the ear wire. When looking at each wire, the ball is either to the right or the left of the loop (opposites). This style makes the earring stand out from other wires. The perpendicular loop also makes the jump ring less visible (that connects the decoration or bead to the ear wire). This is my "go to" quality ear wire.
Nice Design & No Allergic Reaction
I just received a pair of these Hill Tribe ear wires and have worn them for 48 hours without any reaction whatsoever. I cannot wear sterling ear wires for more than 4-5 hours without inflammation, soreness or infection in my ear lobes. What a pleasant difference! If you have sensitivity to copper, nickel, etc, then Thai/Hill Tribe silver might work for you. It has more fine silver content than sterling. Copper or nickel are combined with fine silver to make sterling silver. The copper or nickel content can cause reactions in people sensitive to those metals.
Beautiful earwires! Delicate looking, but sturdy. Would purchase again.
kidney frames with a twist
These are nice simple ear wires. They are similar to kidney frames but with an added silver ball and an open frame design. I just love them. It's also nice they were purchased as a pair- some ear wires are sold individually which can get expensive! Great value here...
