Opal-Lined Silver Huggie Earring
Qty
Sold as a PAIR
$ USD
Crafted from sterling silver and synthetic opal, these huggie earrings offer both style and comfort.

The below measurements are approximate:

  • The earring measures 14mm in diameter
  • The inner wearable area measures 10.6mm in diameter
  • The synthetic opal is on only one side of the earring
  • The silver post has a wearable area that measures 6mm
  • The earring opens via a hinge in the center of the ring

The synthetic opal inlay is not bezel set, it is set using adhesive to help hold it in place.  Wet and other harsh conditions may have an adverse affect on this design.

In our drop-down menus for adding to cart, we show the gauge of the item you are ordering, then the length/diameter, then the ball size if it has any:

Jewelry is measured through a gauge system (see chart below). The higher the gauge number the smaller the wire is. A standard "earring" is usually 20 gauge. Jewelry gauges/sizes can vary between manufacturers. There is no universal regulation on companies to make a standard size in body jewelry. A big part of this is that some jewelry is made overseas and measured in millimeters. And in the USA jewelry is measured in inches/gauges. So many times jewelry can be anywhere from .5mm to 1mm different.
