These small niobium earrings are made from plain round 18 gauge wire and measure 1/2 inch (12mm) in diameter. These are not just for people who are gauging their piercings – the larger wire will comfortably go through an average piercing, but with a bit more presence. They are carefully shaped and filed so there are no rough spots. Then they are tumble polished and cleaned so they are a bright platinum colour that will not tarnish. They can be anodized to any of the colours in the colour chart at no extra charge. Singles are available - just ask.

These are inserted from the back of the ear so they look like very small solid hoops. My husband has worn his for quite some time – in the shower, to sleep, to do his regular work – and he loves them. I designed these because he had trouble inserting regular earrings from the front.

If you would like them coloured (free of charge!), just make your selection using the pull down menu. Niobium is notoriously difficult to photograph and your monitor's display may be very different from mine, so please, read the names of the colours in the colour chart. The anodized colours of niobium are rich, saturated and bright.

The KISS series (Keep It Simple Sue) is all about simple, comfortable, light and casual earrings. They are terrific for fairly new piercings or to 'rest' your piercings after wearing irritating or heavy earrings or just for every day wear. For multiple piercings, they can be mixed and matched – size, texture, colour. See the whole KISS series here:

*Niobium is as hypo-allergenic as pure gold so these earrings can be worn by anyone and everyone. It is about 20% lighter than sterling silver and less than half the weight of gold.
