This is a single solid 14k gold helix earring in shape of a stem of wheat.
It is held by a hole on the top of the ear and comes with a gold ear backing.
It is stamped 14k on the backside.
The length from the end of the stem to the end of the central leaf is 1.2 inch (3 cm)
the width is 0.2 inch (0.5 cm )
The post is made of 19 gauge ( 0.9 mm ) wire.
You have to choose which color gold you want the earring to be- yellow, rose or white.
I plate the white gold in rhodium plating, as is common in white gold jewelry
You can also choose if it will be matte ( as shown in pictures ) or shiny.
As it comes as a single ear piercing, and not a pair when ordering please state which ear you want it for- the left or the right ear.
I have added the last picture with the location of the piercing colored in black that fits the earring.
If you have any doubts or questions about if it will fit you, you can convo me and attach a profile picture of your ear with the place of the piercing and I will advise.
***This is a "made to order" earring and takes 2 - 4 weeks to make
YOU MIGHT ASK YOURSELF- WHY DOES SHE MAKE THE BACK OF THE HELIX EARRING A BUTTERFLY BACK AND NOT A BALL BACK OR USE AN INTERNALLY THREADED POST TO MAKE IT MORE COMFORTABLE WHEN SLEEPING?
First of all, I don't advise to wear the earring when sleeping, since it can bend from the weight of the head on it, and can cause irritation to the ear when sleeping with it since it is big.
Second, to make the earring fit perfectly on the ear ( like it looks on the model ), the earring needs to be held firmly on the ear, so it won't move or lean over in a weird angle.
And since every person's ear has a different width, I need a solution that allows flexibility of where the back holds onto the post, and I've found that the butterfly back is the best solution for this.
Orders above 230$ will be shipped with DHL door to door service, which takes up to 6 business days to most destinations and is insured.
