I don't wear earrings-- no pierced ears.  But I want to make a few pairs as gifts.

The only problem is...  I have no idea where to buy the part that goes through your ear, or what to look for.  I searched on the internet, and they come in all price ranges--  $1 for 10 pairs, $10 for 1 pair.  What's the difference??  The material, I assume, but do I need a more expensive material?  Can I buy the cheap ones?

Also- as I don't wear earrings--  I'm not even sure what SHAPE most people prefer.  There are 'kidney-shaped' ones and 'french hook' ones, from what I can tell.

This is the link I found with many options:

I'm sorry if this has been asked elsewhere, I couldn't find it.

Any and all help would be GREATLY appreciated!

You got earring overload!  Grin

OK so fish hook/french hook  earring post's tend to be the most popular and best value.

If your friends have metal allergies you might need to pay that bit extra for sterling silver earwires, but for most people silver plated is fine (or gold plated), or if you want to be on the safe side choose surgical steel.

They should be quite inexpensive.  Smiley If you are going to buy them from eebeads the first ones on the page should be just fine!  Smiley
