In its natural state Niobium looks like steel or when polished, like platinum. It resists corrosion, is a good shock absorber, and can withstand very high temperatures. Among its many industrial applications, niobium in small amounts is used in alloys. The presence of niobium makes hot-pressing dies and cutting tools resistant to shock and wear. Its conductivity makes it useful in electronic devices and superconductive magnets. If combined with nickel, it makes a high-temperature alloy; added with iron to stainless steel, it offers stability on welding or heating. Niobium is also used in high-strength structural steel. Nuclear reactor cores are constructed with niobium alloys because niobium does not react chemically with uranium and because it is resistant to corrosion. Niobium is a member of a small family of metals known as refractory metals. All the color you will see is purely refracted light; no dyes, colorings, or paints are used! The thickness of the oxide determines the color you see and allows us to express design in color and pattern. We use an electrochemical oxidation process (water and electricity) to control the oxide build-up and therefore control the color. Niobium is totally hypo-allergenic. This refractory element (along with Titanium) is frequently used in artificial joints, plates, pacemakers and dental implants.

  LOVE these!! I get so many compliments!!,
Posted By:

Love these earrings!! I get so many compliments when I wear them at work or out for a nice night out from random strangers. I had read other reviews that the earrings were difficult to put in...I don't have any issues. Turning the earring to the side & rotating it into the ear works so much easier than trying to keep it straight up & down next to your face.

Really pretty earrings. I was worried they'd be hard to put on but they really aren't. Really unique design.

Earrings look great on. They are a little tricky to put on because of the spiraling but they do stay on. Love the colors.

  Light weight and will not fall out!,

It did take a few moments to figure out how to get them in and out the first time; now it's a breeze. When I'm taking them out, I tip them upside down and simply twist then in the same direction I put them in.

  Good for sensitive ears,
Posted By:

I had no problem getting them in my ears. Since the backing is so long, I also don't worry about them falling out on their own. I'm also very sensitive to certain metals and earrings tend to make my ears bleed. These earrings didn't bother my ears at all. Theyre also really pretty and I have no complaints.

  Not as difficult as it appears,
Posted By:

I received these as a gift and I LOVE THEM! They look like they are going to be difficult to put in and take out, but they aren't. You literally just twist them in and out. You do not bend the earring... These are so cute and I get compliments on them every time I wear them.

  Easy to wear,
Posted By:

I don't agree with the reviews here that say these earrings are hard to put in/take out. I found them extremely easy to wear: you just stick the pointy end through the hole in your ear and twist (no mirror needed). They're very lightweight, so they're super comfy to wear all day. I found the dangle didn't work well with a thick cowl-neck sweater, or a woolly scarf, but for summer wear they're going to be fantastic. I wear a lot of purple and blue so they go with most of my wardrobe. I thought the shipping was expensive but overall the earrings are totally worth the cost, and they did ship fast.

  very pretty,
Posted By:

my daughter bought these for me for Christmas. very pretty and look as pictured. i put them in today and it was relatively easy--trick is to turn them sideways and line the wire up with ear hole--then just twist through. for some reason the left went in with absolutely no trouble, but i had to try 2 or 3 times on the right, but then it was in. these are the first ear spirals i've ever worn and no real troubles. they are very comfortable--i don't even feel them.

Not too large, with lovely color and interesting shape. They went on easily for me. I was having an awful time removing them, though, until I figured out that the trick was not to look in the mirror.

  and then it was easy. The earrings are not a showy as they ...,
Posted By:

Spiral design might make them hard to put in, but I figured it out quickly, and then it was easy. The earrings are not a showy as they look in the picture, but are very pretty and useful (they are the colors I wear a lot). I'm glad I bought them.

  Gorgeous, Comfortable and Unique Ear Spirals! Love "Em!,
Posted By:

There are MANY versions of ear spirals out there but NONE like these. I own several ear spirals and while they're all lovely these are completely unique in their design. They're my absolute favorite earrings and very comfortable to wear. Every time I wear them, I get compliments and numerous inquiries of: "where did you get those"?Beautiful and worth every dime!
