We sought to create a fancier version of these Victorian gothic earrings, and we thought what enhanced way than adding some crystal sparkle to make them eye-catching and unique. We are delighted with how these earrings twisted out; they have the stylishness and glamour of ¡°Gothic Punk" type jewels with the alternative touch of the alloy and crystal. These Soft ear-clips are efficiently soldered using no lead solder into the back of these earrings for lifetime quality and high durability. They are very comfortable to use and not too tight when you put into your ears. These unique earrings are not glued like the ones you might find somewhere else. The clips are made of alloy and crystal and lead free.
