This earwire adds a unique touch to one of a kind pieces when you don't want to make your own. Also, it's a good value for sterling silver.
I've ordered several pairs of these, and will order many more. They are not only gorgeous, they make it very easy to change out earrings without weakening the earwire, and the best part of all -- they don't irritate the area behind your ear. Flash of brilliance -- why don't ALL earwires point back toward your ear??
Larger gauge than expected
These are lovely round-shape ear wires (which I love since they don't lift out of my ears when someone hugs me), and have a unique beveled edge to them that catches the light, but are of a substantially thicker gauge than ordinary ear wires. So much so that they are difficult to push through the holes in my lobes, veering towards painful. [I have well-healed holes, pierced 30 years ago, but not torn or stretched.] These wires most closely match my 18 gauge wire, but are square, so they don't slip through very well. They'd catch my eye on a display stand, though.
