Note: if you found this listing while looking for my working lighter cufflinks, I sell them on my ecommerce websiteonly because the cufflinks are not handmade. http://www.yougneek.com/you-light-my-fire-working-lighter-cufflinks/
These lighters were once rare prizes in gumball machines in the 1960's and 70's so they are pretty hard to find in good condition. I have been searching the world over for the mini lighters for my vintage lighter cufflinks and I happened upon these.
They are a pretty gold color and measure only 1 inch tall by 5/8 inch in diameter (25mm x 16mm). They are made of a lighter metal so they are the only lighters light enough to wear as earrings, weighing only 0.2 oz without lighter fluid (5.6g). They dangle from 14K gold filled earwires and look fantastic. You can keep the earring on as you pull the bottom off one of the containers and light up. They don't make these lighters anymore so get them while I have a bunch in stock. If this item is sold out, check my other listings or contact me through convo or at shirwoo [!at] yougneek.com.
Sorry postal regulations say I have to ship them without fluid. Please note that these little lighters don't hold much lighter fluid so you are not going to get lots of uses out of them before refilling, sorry chain smokers. They also don't have any rubber seals so the fluid may evaporate in a few days even if you haven't used them. If you love mini lighters please see my other listings.
These are in new condition and unused. I will test them by rolling the flint to make sure they spark though so if you prefer I didn't let me know.
CAUTION: Now of course care must be given that you don't burn yourself up trying to light a cigarette. TAKE THE BOTTOM PART OFF YOUR EAR BEFORE LIGHTING. I REPEAT, TAKE IT OFF! The lighter is metal so it gets hot when lit and I wont be responsible if you set yourself or your clothes on fire or burn your fingers. Do not fill the lighter while holding it over your blouse and don't overfill the lighter or the fluid might leak and TEST before you put it on over your silk shirt or expensive cashmere. Do not keep lit for more than 10 seconds at a time because it will be too hot to handle.
