Ear piercing can present problems for some women in the form of irritation or a dermatitis type of infection, while others just do not want their lobes pierced. Hence clip-ons are a very practical alternative. They can also be a good choice for young girls.
Another advantage is for heavy chandelier style earrings when wearing them frequently it can cause the ear piercing or even earlobe to stretch. For women with pierced ears who wear earrings infrequently there is a risk the hole in the lobe will heal.
Many women who have their ears pierced will still wear clip on earrings occasionally because they are so versatile.
Strong positive clips that do not hurt and are comfortable are the critical component of clip on earrings. They need to be firm enough to hold the weight of the earring without causing discomfort.

All clip-on earrings rely on some type of clasp or clip that attaches to the earlobe. Here are the most common clip-on earring types.
Traditional Paddle Back Clip — Paddle-shaped with a hinge at the bottom, most suitable for heavier earrings.
Simple Clip — Smaller curved paddle, works better for lighter or smaller earrings.
Pierced Look Clip — Narrow spring clip for small and thin earrings, simulates the look of pierced earrings.
Mini Clip — Small clip used for children’s earrings or smaller styles.
Simple Screwback Clip — Does not include a hinge, must be screwed and unscrewed to wear and remove, common in vintage earrings.

Magnet Back — Opposing magnets are set into the front and back of the earring to hold it onto the earlobe through magnetic force.
Clip on earrings are available in many different styles including Chandelier, Drop, Dangle and Hoop.

Clip On Earrings — Origin and Advanatages


The Origin of Clip-On Earrings

pearl clip on earrings

 Clip On Earrings for non-pierced ears were virtually unheard of until the early 20th century, when piercing of the ears was considered uncivilized. Affluent Victorian women wanted to wear earrings but considered the idea of putting holes in their earlobes to be a vulgar disgrace and a screw back type of fitting was invented so that ear piercing was no longer necessary. The popular style of clip-on crystal chandelier earrings is now an iconic symbol of Victorian era fashion. Clip-on earrings, in the form of screw back, enjoyed another popularity surge in the early 1900s; the popular short hairstyles worn by many women of the era allowed ear adornments to become a focal point. Typically Diamante clip earrings became popular in the 1920s for their simple, elegant styling. Around 1930’s clip-ons, spring clips as we know them today, were invented and both styles were widely used for earrings for the next 40 years until a resurgence of popularity of pierced earrings in the 80's.

Clip On Earrings with Abalone Shell and Sterling Silver

Simply gorgeous colours in these small elegant 925 Sterling Silver Clip On Earrings featuring Abalone Shell.

Sterling Silver Clip On Earrings and Abalone Shell

The Abalone Shell used in these clip on earrings is native to New Zealand and is called 'Paua' in Maori. As it is with many 'Natural Gemstone' earrings when photographed side by side the gemstones do not seem to match perfectly - and this is to be expected for many types of gems and is typical with Abalone Shell due to the nature of the swirls of varying shades of color in the shell - no two pieces of shell are the same.

Of course this is not really a problem because the earrings are worn on opposite sides of the face and are not lined up side by side as in the images depicting the products. So slight variations do not really matter.
Abalone Shell and Sterling Silver Clip On Earrings

The beauty of Abalone Shell(like Moonstone or Mystic Topaz and some other gems) is that the colors vary dependent on the angle and intensity of light hitting the earring - as you move so the colors shimmer and change.

This pair of Clip On Earrings measure 18mm x 12mm - (3/4" x 1/2").
