This item is hand carved from organic material and the gauge will vary +/- up to 0.5mm.
The star inlays are only on one side of the pincher. All sizes have diameter of approximately 5/8".

I love these! The stars are a little mismatched between the pair, one's pointy and the other's more rounded, but it's to be expected from hand carved items. I'm very happy with them!

I wasn't so happy with the diameter of these pinchers. The stars were more of a bright white, versus the almost milky hazy white as seen in the product photo.
If you have thicker lobes, these might be a good buy for you, but stay away if your lobes are thin. (About 5/16 or smaller)
Smaller sizes might look a bit more attractive on the ear.

I was disappointed in the quality of these pieces, as they were both flawed and poorly matched. One of the crescents has a big discolored flaw down the side of it, and the other crescent has very faint stars, hard to see when I am wearing them. Very inexpensive price , but I guess I got what I paid for.

The finish on these is very smooth, and the stars are well defined. You can feel a slight raise where the stars are, but it looks flat. My 0g is slightly larger than standard, by less than half a mm.
