Sold as:  Single earring


4mm clear crystal in a surgical steel or sterling silver setting with 6mm dangling vintage stained glass style leaf on a 6mm or 8mm surgical steel bar with 3mm screw-on ball closure secured at the back of the ear. The thicker part at the top of the post/base of the crystal means it sits about 1.5mm away from the ear rather than against the skin giving the leaf more room to move around. You can see this in the second photo showing the side view of the earring.

Total length: 13mm

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.

quite a big piece but bonny.

I ordered this as a tragus piece but when it arrived it was too long even at 6mm and it's quite front heavy so it hangs forward out of the piercing. I was entitled a replacement because I thought it must be bigger than 6mm but the replacement was the same.
I've actually worn them as lobe earrings and love them! I've coordinated the colours in the leaf with jewelled balls in my tragus and forward helix.
I didn't find them too fiddly to fit either on my own.

We've now added another photo (the second along under the main photo) showing how the post length is measured on these earrings to hopefully avoid any further confusion. The earring is designed to sit slightly forward from the ear to allow the leaf to move but it can make the post look longer than the size ordered.

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