This is a single cartilage piercing in shape of a stem with engraved leaves growing on it.
It is made of solid sterling silver, nickel free.
There is a gemstone set close to the top to give a spark of color.
You can choose one of the following gemstones :
- Purple- Amethyst
- Red- garnet
- Black- onyx
- Light green- peridot
- Dark blue- cubic zirconia
- Light Blue- blue topaz
- Orange- carnelian
- Blue opal
- White opal
- Transparent- crystal
- Light yellow- citrine
- Light pink- rose quartz
It is held by a hole on the top of the ear and comes with a silver ear backing.
I have added a picture ( last one ) with the location of the piercing colored in black that fits the earring.
The length from the end of the stem to the end of the central leaf is 1.4 inch (3.5 cm)
The width is 0.4 inch (1.1 cm ).
The post that goes into the ear is made of 19 gauge ( 0.9 mm ) wire.
As it comes as a single ear piercing, and not a pair, when ordering please choose your option for the ear when you order- left or right.
This piercing is "made to order" and takes 2-4 weeks to make.
