This is our smallest pair of round studs, measuring 7.5mm (approximately 1/4″). All of our studs sit on the lobe with a back post for pierced ears. For such a small earring these really so show up, because the one-carat center is very faceted and sparkly. Then that main stone is surrounded by a halo border of tiny round stones as well. These sit up a little higher off the ear than most of our other studs (5mm tall / 0.2″), because the setting has a cross hatch cut-out design around it to add even more detail and beauty. The base is sterling silver sealed in rhodium-platinum so that they resist tarnishing with proper care.
These are seen in the top #2 spot on the strip display photo. This strip, showing all of the various studs right next to each other, should be used to gage the various sizes of the studs visually.
