My original design (seen on TV) used black diamonds and is sold out. But this almost identical design uses sparkling black spinels as the stone and is just as lovely! Slip the slim bar end of the threader earring through your ear and the earring rests on the "U" shape. Sophisticated, unique and perfectly PLC. Like the Little Black Dress, this is a wardrobe essential! Dangle just over 1 1/2" long. Your choice of sterling silver or 14k gold-filled ear threads.
