These earrings are clips from the 60's left over from a store that sold out. They are just under 1 inch and are marked Sterling. I did not clean as people are picky about their silver but I will send a Sunshine cloth to help you clean. Remind me. They are 2/3 of an inch wide. These can easily be converted to pierced by a jeweler or buying the kit at Hobby Lobby. For you from Kansas.
