3 Ways To Assess Clip-On Earrings

Posted on

If you don't have your ears pierced and don't have any plans on doing so, you don't have to give up on the idea of wearing earrings. Instead, a good solution to consider is to buy clip-on earrings. You'll find these earrings for sale at many different online and in-person jewelry stores, so you'll be able to have fun checking out the different designs and finding one or more pairs that will look good on your ears. Here are some things that you'll want to assess as you shop for clip-on earrings.


Clip-on earrings are designed to attach to your ears in several different ways. Clip mechanisms are common, as are designs that use magnets. You want to ensure that any pair of clip-on earrings you buy is comfortable on your ears, particularly if you expect to wear the earrings for prolonged periods each day. Talk to a salesperson (or carefully read the product description if you're shopping online) to learn about which earrings are most comfortable. Some clip-on earrings advertise that they're more comfortable than others, and you'll want to ensure that you choose a pair that doesn't put too much pressure on your ears.


While some people don't mind wearing earrings that are obviously of the clip-on variety, others like the idea of choosing clip-on earrings that look like conventional earrings. If you're of the latter mindset, you'll want to assess the realism of each pair that catches your attention. For example, a pair that has large clips as part of the design may not appeal to you. Instead, you'll want earrings with tiny clips that make it look as though you're wearing them with pierced ears.

Removal Ease

It's common to remove clip-on earrings before bed as a way of giving your ears a break from wearing the jewelry. As you shop, you'll want to learn about how easy certain pairs of clip-on earrings are to remove from your ears. Some earrings are very simple; you'll just pull a tab on the clip to release it, allowing the earring to slide off your ear. Other designs are more involved, requiring you to turn a screw-like piece several revolutions until the earring is loose enough to come off. If you want to be able to remove the earrings quickly and easily, you'll likely favor the former design. Learn more about clip-on earrings by browsing at a jewelry store in your city or online.
