[Source] Sterling Silver Threaded Earring Posts

Does anyone know where I can find sterling silver threaded earrings
posts and backings? I’ve been able to find an abundance of these in
gold, but need sterling. Thanks.

Hi Catherine;

I doubt you’ll find any. Sterling is really too soft for those, the
threads would strip away in no time. They do come in platinum, and
I’ve found the threads strip away pretty easily on those too. White
gold would be a solution, unless the price were problematic. And
there’s the issue of nickel sensitivity in some individuals. Maybe
someone here knows of a source for hypoallergenic stainless steel
threaded posts and backs. Those would certainly be cheaper than gold
and non allergenic if the grade of stainless were good.
