These Economical Surgical Steel Ear Wires are perfect for many of your earring creations. These have a bright grey silver tone and are made from 20 gauge surgical steel wire. They measure 25mm X 15mm, which is slightly larger than many of our ear wires. They are economical because they may need their ends smoothed and loops closed, but they are a great value for the price.
These ear wires are made from 304 grade stainless steel. We make and use 316L, 317L as well as nickel free 430 to make supplies in our shop. Contact us with any questions. Copy and paste for more information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surgical_stainless_steel
Here is a quote from the above link: "Surgical stainless steel is a grade of stainless steel used in biomedical applications. The most common "surgical steels" are austenitic 316 stainless and martensitic 440 and 420 stainless steels. There is no formal definition on what constitutes a "surgical stainless steel", so product manufacturers and distributors apply the term to refer to any grade of corrosion resistant steel."
