Sterling silver or hypoallergenic surgical steel butterfly design with three crystals on a 316L surgical steel 8mm bar with 3mm screw-on ball closure secured at the back of the ear. The butterfly is 9mm high.

Please note: The crystals in these earrings are glued in and should not be worn in swimming pools, baths, showers, saunas or in similar conditions. Please do not put the crystals into cleansers or germicides as it may also cause them to fall out.

Which ear?
The earring is designed to follow the curve of the ear so it comes in a left and right ear version. Please select the ear that the earring is for. So if you have your left ear pierced you'd need the left ear stud (the same way as you would think of your left or right hand). The one exception to this is front/forward helix piercings where you will need to select the opposite ear for the earring to follow the curve correctly.

Post length
Cartilage studs are not adjustable so you need to choose the length of the post.
How do I work out the length?

Gauge (post/bar thickness)
1.2mm/16 gauge is the most common size ears are initially pierced with using a needle. 0.8mm or 1mm gauge may be better for piercings which have shrunk or were originally pierced with a gun.

Screw-on accessories
Compatible with 1.2mm/16 gauge externally threaded screw-on accessories.

I love this earring it is so pretty and the little jem is so sparkly. I am wearing it in my earlobe until my cartilage heals and have had loads of compliments about how good it looks. I can't wait to wear it in my cartilage.
Excellent value for money and really fast delivery


Metal Allergies
316L surgical steel is hypoallergenic but does contain a small amount of nickel. The nickel release rate is only around 0.02μg/cm2/week but it may cause a problem if you are very sensitive to nickel.
