16g 6mm Stainless Steel Straight Barbell with Crystal Tear Drops Gold Plated Brass Cast Ear Charm — External 1.2mm

The Crystal Tear Drops Cartilage Earring has a gold-and-crystal combination that makes for a dignified and versatile piece. This cartilage jewelry comes as a set of one 16g straight barbell and one jeweled ear charm.

The 16g externally threaded straight barbell is manufactured from implant grade steel and measures 1/4” long with a 4mm end ball. The other end features a fixed charm with a 4mm prong-set clear cubic zirconia jewel.

The ear charm is brass-cast and gold plated for a polished finish. The design features a teardrop pattern of larger cubic zirconia jewels interlaced with smaller 2mm cubic zirconia jewels, all in gold prong settings. Three vertical holes are on the back of the charm, allowing for an adjustable fit with the included 16g barbell to hug the edge of the ear. Please note that any jewelry larger than a 16g is not compatible with this charm.
