Best Clip-On Earrings [May 2019]

Clip-on earrings are a great alternative to traditional ear jewelry. They’re great for kids and for those who are too squeamish for piercings.

And, they’re the perfect way to see what a new piercing would look like before you commit to it.

You can buy clip-on earrings at accessory stores like Claire’s and Francesca’s. These stores sell clip ons in a range of different styles.

Or, you can make your own. You can actually take any pair of traditional pierce earrings and turn them into clip ons.

You don’t need a PhD to figure out how to wear clip-on earrings.

But, they aren’t as easy to figure out as it might seem. If you handle your earrings improperly, you might break them.

So, it’s important to be careful with your rings and understand the right and wrong ways to wear them.

Here are some tips for wearing clip ons the right way:

  • Always open the lever from the top. Pull them down and out slowly. That way, you won’t bend the metal.
  • If your earrings have a paddle on the back, the lever may loosen from time to time. You can use pliers to tighten it so that they don’t fall off your ears.
  • If the paddle is too tight, slide a screwdriver tip underneath and gently pry it outwards. Be careful not to loosen it too much or you may lose one later on.
  • Clip-on earrings rely on tension to stay on your ears. If they’re not squeezing tightly enough, they’ll fall off your ears.

    We’ll be honest:

    Sometimes, clip-on earrings hurt. But, they only hurt if you wear them the wrong way.

    You can eliminate some of the pain by wearing earring cushions. Basically, these are small pieces of foam or plastic that pad your ears. That way, you won’t have to feel metal digging into the skin on your earlobes.

    Clip-on earrings, or “clip ons”, are a type of earring that requires no piercing. In other words, you can wear them without having to get holes in your ears.

    Typically, clip ons are associated with children. They’re a fun way for kids to play dress up and wear earrings without having to get a piercing.

    But, there are all higher-quality clip ons that look just like real jewelry. If you wear them properly, no one will be able to tell the difference!
