I apologize that there are so few measurements available for earrings on this site. Here's what you need to know:
The default finding on all earrings is a nickel-free sterling silver or 14ct gold-filled lever back which measures 1.4cm from end to end. That means that the decorative part of earring itself falls 1.4cm (or 9/16" ) from the earhole.
If you prefer the earring to be higher up on the ear, I can replace the lever-back with a small round post. $3 charge). I also carry fancier posts which work particularly well with pearl earrings. Let me know if you want to see them.
If you have trouble with lever-backs, and prefer a French wire (which is open in the back), I can do that too (no charge).
No holes in your ears? Not a problem. All of my earrings can be converted to clip-ons. Please keep in mind that they still dangle. (Charge depends upon which clip you choose.)
If you see something you like, but it isn't quite right, please be in touch by emailing me Julie@carnelianknoll.com or try calling 212-662-4634. I'm happy to schedule a Facetime session or a Zoom session to discuss further.
