Especially created in the true tradition of sweetheart pins ofthe past. Many solders would give their mons and girlfriends sweethearts pins, and other items of jewelry while they were gone. Here is an item that follows in that tradition but in a unique way. Paratrooper post earrings. Both the earrings, post and nut are sterling, no nickel at all, so no worry about wearing these. They are just under 1/2 inch wide so they will look great as a post.
