Earrings on stainless steel wire measure 1 3/4 inch or 4.4 cm. Earrings come with optional plastic earring backs for a more secure fit. Stainless steel sometimes works better for ears too sensitive for gold or silver plated wire. These earrings are also available in a shorter length 1 1/2 inch size or 3.8 cm. Choose size at checkout. If you want one of each size, order first pair then go back to home page and re-open this page which should be near the top of the listings and re-order other size.
