Falling leaf earrings float almost 4" from stainless steel wire 10 cm and come with plastic earring backs for secure fit. Stainless steel wire is a slightly darker, gray wire. Handwrapped wire means no two earrings are identical. Stainless steel sometimes works better for ears, too sensitive for gold or silver plated wire. Minimalist style earrings will ride above your shoulder and be so light you will forget you are wearing any.
