Pearl earrings are one of the most classic and timeless jewelry.
Those made of great quality and fine workmanship can even be passed on to the next generation as a family heirloom, provided that it’s being kept in excellent condition.
We think that every woman should own at least a pair of quality pearl earrings. Even if you don’t have ear holes, there are plenty of clip on gorgeous pearl earrings to choose from that will help you look classy.
Pearl clip on earrings are also great for people with sensitive ear lobes and are a favourite choice for some people for sanitary reasons.
Before you head out to buy, there are 3 types of clip-ons you should know:
1) Clip On Pearl Earrings with rubber padding
These type of clip-ons are more comfortable to wear because of the rubber padding at the back ear lobe, which will help your ears to ease some pressure off from direct hard metal clamp.
This will also be suitable for people who are sensitive to metal, but not those who are sensitive to rubber.
2) Pearl Clip On Earrings Without Padding
This type of clip-on material is the same above, just that its without padding. Go for this only if you are sensitive to metal.
Clip-ons earrings without padding generally sit more more tightly on the ear lobes, so they don’t fall off as easily. Padding adds extra weight and exerts lesser force on the ear lobes, so they might slip down your ears when it starts to get loose.
3) Pearl Clip On Earrings With Screws
Screw-on clip earrings are probably the most secured earrings. Unlike metal clamps , where the lever might get loose over time with frequent opening and closing, screw-on earrings don’t get loose that easily.
You can also adjust the tightness of the earrings according to your preference.
With the metal clamps, there’s no way to adjust and there might be instances where the clamp is too tight for your comfort or even painful.
There is no way to tell which type is suitable for you until you start wearing them.
Fortunately, there are many quality clip on pearl earrings in the market that come with affordable prices, so you can easily buy a few pieces to try.
Buying from a reputable online store can also help lessen the risk as you can always return it if its not suitable for you.
