Spare Earring Backs - per pair (2)
All Hello Joy dangle and larger stud style earrings come with a pair of these backs to help your earring tops sit nice and flat against your earlobe. This listing is for an extra/spare pair - great for changing out your other earrings with butterfly style backs or to have on hand as backup should you lose one.
12mm diameter earring backs - aluminium with plastic surround. The aluminium is nickel-free and lead-free.
As each centrepiece is cut from a larger original painted artwork, each is unique in pattern placement and colouring. The pair you receive may feature different markings to those pictured - your own piece of unique, wearable art.
Hello Joys are painted and sealed with a protective coating that allows them to withstand the occasional scuff, bump and water contact. However the coating is not infallible. Leaving your earrings submerged in water, in excessive heat (hot cars in summer), or repetitive rigid scratching at the coating (rattling around in the bottom of handbags, ouch!) will inevitably penetrate the membrane, leaving the painted layers vulnerable to further chips, scratches or bubbling.
Store them flat (or even better, an earring holder), away from water, repetitive harsh sunlight and excessive heat.
Tassels and fringing are made using genuine leather. Leather is porous and the oils and chemicals in perfume, makeup and sunscreen may affect it. So for this reason, it's best you put your earrings on after you've finished your beauty routine.
For bent or curled leather, use a little water on your fingertips to dampen the leather (just damp, not soaking), then straighten and leave to dry on a flat surface overnight. And Voila!
Should your earrings need a little freshen up, please use a soft, clean microfibre cloth to give them a little wipe them down.
SHINY, SHINY JUMP RINGS
We use quality, tarnish resistant jump rings (the little metal rings that hold the earrings together) and hoops which are treated with a magical, hard wearing, clear finish designed to repel moisture and skin acids that can cause oxidisation and tarnish. What does this mean for you? The metal components remain shiny for much longer than regular jump rings, which is surely music to your ears, yes?
