You'll need at least two piercings to wear this single earring in your ear. A one-inch length of gold-filled chain terminates in two specially designed posts. When the posts are inserted in two adjacent holes in your ear, the effect is of a chain swagging horizontally across your lobe. High-quality gold-filled earring posts and backs make this earring wearable day and night. Note that this earring is sold SINGLY, not in a pair.
