Vin wears this simple earring throughout the Mistborn novels. The earring is the only memento Vin has from her mother. The nail stud is a silver plated bronze earring in the books, but our version is solid sterling silver for comfortable wear. The earrings are a hoop style, but the nails appear to go through your earlobes.

I gauged my ears specifically for this piece. I finally reached size 6G (4mm) and it fits loosely at the thickest point. It has a good weight to it and looks pretty dang awesome. Highly recommend!
I'm in the process of gauging up my ears so this is a present to future me, but I really like the quality of it. I like that it's pretty smooth, so when the time comes I don't feel like it will be a struggle to put it in. The sizing looks pretty accurate. I compared it to my stretching kit and at the widest it's about a 6, and the portion where I feel I'll be wearing it is closer to an 8, though maybe a tiny bit bigger. I'm excited to see how I'll look with it in!
