Prong bails (also called pinch bails & ice-pick bails) are very easy to use for hanging a variety of pendants. Choose from a large variety of styles and finishes of prong bails, including front-to-back hole alignment and side-to-side hole alignment. Most prong bails just need to be gently manipulated to fit the prongs (or "ice picks") into your pendant's hole. Then, simply pinch the bail shut! Our #41-180 styles work great on a wide variety of crystal pendants, especially 14 - 25mm Swarovski crystal pendants.
Some styles of prong bails also have a small loop at the top, for attaching to an ear wire, or sliding onto cord or a thin chain. #41-223 and the Tiny Leaf Bail are great for earrings.
Briolette caps are similar, but for a specialty shape. Add the briolette cap to your briolette or tall, narrow teardrop, pinch the prongs inward, and then attach the briolette cap to an ear wire or stringing material. (You may need to use a jump ring.)
