      Andrea, do you want the gold-plated backing or the 14k gold? The gold-plated is very affordable but they tend to tarnish over time but you can get a bunch. I think no more than USD3 for a pair or cheaper. The gold depends on how much the gold prices are when the dealers have it done and depends on the grams. Some make the backings thinner and some quite thick. I plan to go to Asia in May.

        I'd love to find a pair of ear nuts like that, too...is there any link you can give us to a seller of this product, perlas?

        I saw a similar-concept Jewelmer ear nut on a blog-- scroll down to see the photo: http://mrsmartinezravesandrants.blog...south-sea.html

          Pearl Dreams, I was surfing the net and surprised that I can hardly see these type of backings as it is so common in Asia! I don't know a supplier for them because it's just automatic in big SSPs to have such backing in Manila. Even in Greenhills, the gold-plated ones are thrown in for free if you but SSPs, but I think they get them from China. Your best bet is to have them copied by a silver/goldsmith but the next time I'm in Manila, I will ask from whom they get those.

            Thank you, perlas.

            I just did a bit of Googling myself and came up with these E'arrs T-Backs that are the same sort of thing:
            gold tone: http://www.earrs.com/jewelry-accesso...acks-gold.html
            silver tone: http://www.earrs.com/jewelry-accesso...ks-silver.html

            This website also sells the clear disk backs with and without the friction bullet: http://www.earrs.com/jewelry-accesso...ing-backs.html

              Bella sells a very large flower type backing that I've used. https://www.bellafindings.com/3784/1...on-earnut.html

              You can also use these, although they are sterling: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BF6EQ8U/...l_5wddmm4b7w_b

              Or these in 14k, but the price is a bit crazy! http://www.amazon.com/Honora-Happy-B.../dp/B00SVEKTYO

                  JerseyPearl, those look good, too.

                  Okay so I did more Googling and found these that look like the Honora ones, being sold by eBay seller sandydiy333 (item number 190904623983):

                  http://www.ebay.com/itm/2x-STERLING-...3D190904623983

                  They are (supposedly) sterling silver.

                        It is odd that they are hard to come by...when I asked my SS pearl guy about it last year..he said that he'd never seen them for sale anywhere in Australia. I thought that was so weird as they are so common in Asia. Well we at least have an assortment of potential solutions with all these links ... well done Pearly Girls.. well done!

                          Thank you for the link your sent. Obviously, that backing is so cute and will work just as good as the one Perlas suggested.
                          I'm so thankful for everyone help me here.
