our ''sheath'' post style earring came about as a custom design for a client with ''draggy lobes'' (the victim of oversized earrings in the 80's)
the solution was to disguise the problem area, so we designed a straight post that was seated lower on back of the sheath, it covered up her holes and no one was the wiser - (of course they look good on anyone)
post is 1/8 below the top, total length of entire earring is 1''
hammered finish sterling silver - comes with both micro rubber bumpers and sterling butterfly backs so you can decide what works best for you....
LOTS of gemstone options....drop us a line if you don't see your favorite & let us know what you want!
