***These can easily be used as interchangeable ear wires. Leave me a note during check out that you would like the bottom loop to be left slightly open***

I made these unique french ear wires using 20 gauge 14/20 Gold Filled wire and Solid 14k Gold for the "nail" ends. On the front (made with 14k solid gold) is hammered flat to resemble a nail. The ends have also been hammered to give them a flared look then sanded and smoothed for a nice comfortable fit. Lastly, they are polished to a beautiful shine!

Approximate Measurements:
Front length: 7/8" (22mm)
Width of top: 3/8" (10mm)
Back Length: 1 1/8" (29mm)

These are sold by the pair.

If you need a larger quantity than what is available, please contact me so that arrangements can be made. Please note, I make these ear wires by hand, there may be some slight variations from pair to pair.

Why I choose to use 14/20 gold filled and what it means:
Gold filled is made by using heat and pressure to fuse a layer of solid Gold onto a base metal (usually brass). I use 14/20 gold filled wire to create my pieces. What that means is that 1/20 (5%) of the metal weight is 14 karat solid gold, the same applies to 12/20 gold filled, which would contain 1/20 (5%) of 12 karat gold and so on.. I choose to work with 14/20 gold filled because of it's beautiful rich color and the fact that is wears just like real gold. It has beauty, durability, and strength. It is a quality alternative to solid gold at an affordable price.
