Choose from a large selection of French hook ear wires (earring hooks) for making jewelry, including several options constructed of hypoallergenic and nickel-free metals. To quickly narrow down the options, use the MATERIAL filter. You'll find over 40 styles of sterling silver earring hooks, including classic ball-and-coil styles, streamlined modern shapes, and ear wires with jewelry bezels. To make precious metal earrings with a friendlier price tag, try silver filled and gold filled ear wires. All of our sterling silver, silver filled and gold filled ear wire are nickel free.
Stainless steel French hook ear wires make sturdy, long lasting jewelry. Most stainless steel contains 8-10% nickel, but our #430 stainless steel contains less than 0.75% nickel, and meets the EU Nickel directive! Naturally nickel-free niobium and titanium earring hooks are strong space-age metals, and great options for most people with metal allergies or sensitive skin.
