Other common locations other than the earlobe for piercings include the tragus, rook, and across the helix. The term ear piercing refers to an earlobe piercing, whereas piercings in the upper part of the external ear are often referred to as cartilage piercings, which are more complex to perform than earlobe piercings and take much longer to heal.
Materials used as components for a pair of earrings include metal, plastic, glass, precious stones, and beads. The styles of earrings range in size from small hoops and studs to dangling items and larger hoops. The earrings size is limited by the physical capacity of the earlobe to hold the earring without tearing; however, heavy earrings worn over extended periods of time may lead to stretching of the earlobe and the piercing.
The unique characteristic of the stud earrings in the Silver Opal Earrings Collection is that the earrings appear to float on the earlobe without a visible front point connection. Although each pair of earrings has been inlaid with some type of Opal, including White Opal or Blue Opal, there are a variety of other gemstones, including Coral, Turquoise, Jet, Malachite, Lapis, Spiny Oyster, and Gaspiete that add to the unique design set in a Silver Earring setting. The Silver Opal Earrings come in a variety of styles which include dangles, French hooks, Chandelier, and posts. Every pair of Silver Opal Earrings is beautiful!
