Premium Argentium Sterling Silver Square-wire Ear Wires / Earrings - 5 pairs Hypoallergenic & nickel & lead free. 21 gauge. 14x18mm or 9/16 x 12/16".
Looking for something a little more special or allergy-safe? These are classy, simple, shiny and reflect light gorgeously (as also captured by the little mirrors they become when I try to take photos of them :) the dark areas are reflections). These are a comfortable thickness for the typical earring-wearer or those that cannot tolerate a thicker wired earring. My ears are sensitive to size and I wear these easily with no slippage.
These are artisan-crafted, made to order, and will be created within the standard processing/shipping time already in place (no added wait time). Please inquire for pricing for other quantities or sizes; I also make a size slightly larger than these (pictured on left in the photos containing 4); 16x20mm or 5/8 x 6/8".

ARGENTIUM® SILVER is a premium hypoallergenic and antibacterial (a perfect choice for those who are unable to wear traditional sterling) sterling silver. More Versatile: tarnish resistant, low maintenance, and will maintain its silver shine longer than standard sterling. Argentium silver is the natural color of pure silver, yet brighter and whiter than platinum, white gold and traditional sterling.
FILLED: has a 5-10% durable layer of fine silver or gold (much thicker than plating) bonded to a brass or copper alloy base metal. The silver/gold layer will not wear off and if allergic to plated metals but are able to wear sterling, you should also be able to wear silver filled. SF tarnishes and cleans the same way as sterling. The SF wire I use has a 10%+ fine silver content.
PLATED: Plated wire is comprised of a base metal (mine is copper, which is antimicrobial) with a thin layer of authentic silver or gold electroplated to its surface and sometimes another thin coating of enamel, to make it tarnish-resistant. The top layer(s) will wear over time and can be nicked or scratched easier.

Each case will be handled on an individual basis and honored if possible, however I reserve the right to refuse service to customer if an error is not on the seller’s end, policies are not being honored, or customer does not treat a situation fairly with respect to the sale.

General care instructions: Do not expose jewelry to water or excessive moisture. Every piece is made with delicate materials and should be treated gently. Some metals will patina with age/oxidation. Most metals used in my items are lead and nickel free.
Colors may vary slightly from monitor to monitor. Many pieces/stones may have slight imperfections to them and items made-to-order will vary slightly due to their handmade nature. These imperfections and variations are what add to the charm and uniqueness of your one-of-a-kind item :)
