These are great hand charms with the ring at the wrist. (Please note I have these charms with the ring at the fingertips, SKU#C158) I think they could make some fantastic steampunk earrings. They measure 24mm long x 11mm wide. These are 100% brass stampings, which means they are hollow backed, made of 100% nontoxic metal. They have been professionally silver plated with a dull oxidized finish that accentuates their vintage details. They are not shiny silver.
