Empress Studs (Screwback)
We are beyond thrilled to announce the combination of two of Hey June's greatest pieces. The power of the Empress meets the power of the Screwback stud. It's a match made in heaven, and a union we doubt will ever break.
WHAT DOES THE EMPRESS MEAN?
👑 The hard things you have done in your life are actually what is most beautiful about you. And when you are in the midst of a hard time, (even today!) Empress is a reminder that at one point this hard thing will be something that you look at and see how it has molded you, changed you, shaped you, and made you more beautiful. That the trials you go through will crown you with beauty, wisdom, compassion, and joy.
👑 The empress is a reminder that you are beautiful not in spite of, but because of. This is your piece that displays to you and to the world that you have TRIUMPHED in those hard times.
WHAT IS A SCREWBACK EARRING?
✨ The unique post of a screwback earring screws into a tiny bead in the back of the ear.
✨ This tiny screw means no poking, no messing with, no losing earring backs. The earring is completely secure and doesn't hurt your neck with its annoying pokes.
✨ Screw back earrings are comfortable to sleep in and just don't need to be messed with. Nap all you want in these beauties!
✨ Screw back earrings are great for multiple piercings that you want to leave in for weeks and months at a time. Second, third and cartilage piercings will love this one that you can keep in!
✨Screw back earrings are a no-brainer for little girls- get them in and then don't worry about messing with your babe's ears for months. Or years! We don't care what you do!
- 925 Sterling Silver
- 6 mm in height
- Diamond is cubic zirconia
- Available in gold or silver
- Freaking cute and freaking tiny!
NOTE: The post is a tad bit thicker than our regular stud line as it needs enough thickness to screw in. The majority of our customers have no problem with the post size. Skin is easy to stretch and lobes can definitely make room for a screw back. That being said, if you have very small piercings it may require some stretching to get the earring in. We recommend using a bit of coconut oil or even dish soap to slip these guys in. (Um, I mean, it's basically the same concept as lube... It might take a bit of fanagling, but you can get it in! And it'll be worth it! I promise!)
At Hey June, all of our necklaces, bracelets, huggies, and hoops are gold-filled or sterling silver pieces! Gold-filled jewelry means that there is a layer of real gold bonded over brass- it is tarnish-resistant and hypoallergenic. These are pieces you can put on and keep on. Gold-filled jewelry gives you the beauty, quality, and durability of solid gold without having to pay for it! Wahoo!
With proper care and handling, your gold-filled or sterling silver piece can give you a very long and happy life! Here are our recommendations for keeping your piece looking pristine!
- Store in an airtight bag when not wearing
- Wipe jewelry off after swimming or lots of exposure to water or other elements.
- Avoid contact with sunscreen, cleaning products with bleach, perfumes, scented lotions, hairsprays, etc. If your piece does have contact with these things, no biggie, just wipe it off as soon as possible.
- Gently clean your piece with water and mild dish soap if it starts to look worn.
- Use a soft anti-tarnishing cloth on your gold-filled or sterling silver piece to remove stubborn dirt.

These are perfect for everyday wear and so cute! I only take them out to switch to a different pair of earrings once or twice a week.
The back of the earring is difficult to put on. But they are beautiful.
Beautiful & Meaning piece of jewelry!!!
Love these earrings. More beautiful in person & they are so comfortable in my ears don't even realize I am wearing them. Never want to take them off & love the little sparkle they have. The meaning behind them is what drew me to them & so glad I bought them.
I love my Empress earrings. They are beautiful. Hey June does not disappoint! They are so great to work with! ♥️
The posts to the studs are very thick and felt like my ears were stretching when I tried to put them in. They are cute just too large for my ears and very uncomfortable to wear.
