Based on the zigzag petroglyphs found at archaeological sites such as Newgrange, Co Meath, Ireland, these beautifully simple ear climbers are light, comfortable to wear and eye catching. Made from 21 gauge(0.7mm) sterling silver wire, these simple geometric ear climbers make a subtle statement and can be worn everyday. The "bobby pin" shape holds the climber in place, along the ear lobe.
If you prefer gold to silver, 14kt yellow and 14kt red gold-filled options are now available.

What is Gold-Filled Wire?
Gold-filled wire is made up of a base metal core (in this case brass) which is bonded to a layer of gold. The outer layer of gold must make up at least 1/20th (5%) of the wire's overall weight. This means that the overlay is thicker and more durable than gold plating, which is typically between 0.5-1 micron thick. Gold-filled wire is usually described by the karatage of the gold alloy on the surface, which is usually 12k or 14k gold.

- To wear: insert earring into your piercing and rotate until the zigzag lies along the front of your ear lobe. Gently squeeze the ear climber until it is secure on your ear. The ear climber will mould to the shape of your ear, which may create a slight curve.
