Tiny silver earstuds These little studs are just 2 millimeters wide, perfect as placeholders or just elegant points of silver for your lobes. The earstuds come packaged in a matt white environmentally friendly presentation box, ready to be given and received with love. All my metal is from a company which is a member of the Responsible Jewelry Council. They deal only in recycled silver and gold. They smelt their metals to the highest environmental standards, to cause the least impact on the environment. They do not deal with newly mined metals, as these metals cause much greater destruction to the environment. There is no visible difference between recycled metals and newly-mined metals.
