Earrings are one of the essential accessories that women have. There are many types available according to the size and design. Some of them include danglers, drop earrings, hoops, and studs. Most of these designs require a stopper for support, so they do not fall out. Let’s have a look at the types of earring stoppers or backs available.
Types of Earring Backs For Studs
There are three different types of earring backs used for studs:
Push backs are also known as friction backs. They are the most common type of backs for studs. It easily slides onto a straight earring back post to hold it in place with the help of friction. Back posts meant to work with push backs have a groove end, making them secure enough to stay on.
These are seemingly discreet earrings back, making them a great option for those who have smaller earlobes. One advantage screw backs have over push backs is that they are more secure.
Although it does need more time to put on compared to push back because of careful screwing on each side. You must be gentle while screwing so that you do not strip your earring posts.
Secure Back Locks
Secure lock backs have a huge plastic disc that is present on the earring. This makes wearing a bigger, heavier earring comfortable. The plastic disc makes this type of earring back difficult to lose.
But, with many plusses, there is one drawback, which is the plastic disc itself. They show up vividly of the earlobes of the wearer are small.
Types of Earring backs for hoops and danglers
Danglers and hoops are pretty different, so for them, we use:
Safety Lock Closures
These closures have a button that secures the closure into its place. This type is a beneficial option for earrings that are too heavy or long. One of the examples includes diamond hoop earrings. They are perfect for this because they can hold added weight and more pressure.
Lever backs are most commonly used on drop earrings or danglers type earrings. This kind of earring back has of a lever that locks into the place within a lever hinge back. These kinds are pretty secure and very easy to put on or take off. Moreover, lever backs also add an oomph, a bit of shimmer, and great style to diamond earrings, since they slightly sway with any kind of movement the wearer makes.
