Earrings make the perfect gift because they are always the right fit. The most basic jewelry wardrobe piece, you may leave the house without a bracelet, but you’ll almost always wearing earrings.
The wide variety of earring types, sizes, and prices available makes it easy to find the perfect pair for a gift. Most earring styles go with anything, adding style to anything you wear.
Gold, silver, or platinum give great touch; these metals can go with anything. And to make them sparkle choose a pair with diamonds. A hoop earring is a continuous piece of metal that goes through the ear and is then held in place, typically by a latch back or friction back.
The most common type of earring back offered in the jewelry industry, requiring no screwing to put on or take off the earring.
Push on/screw off earrings are a little quicker to put on than screw on/screw off styles. The wearer can push on the earring back, and then unscrew it to take off the earring. Push on/screw off posts are typically used with studs and drop earrings.
Lever Backs also have a curved wire hook but are latched behind the ear with a lever that opens and closes. These are only used with drop earrings.
Only used with drop earrings, this style has no back to it. It is a curved wire hook that the earring itself can be attached to.
Used mainly for hoops, there are two styles of latch backs: one has the post on a hinge and clips into a notch on the back of the earring. The second has an immobile post and a lever-style back that has a hole for the post to slide in to.
