At sophiescloset.com, not only do we stock a sensational selection of earrings for pierced ears, we have an abundance of delectable designs that are clip-ons. 

You’ll have noticed that large statement earrings are once again enjoying a major fashion moment, with celebrities, the style conscious and fashionista’s everywhere opting to adorn their earlobes with big, bold clip-on styles. 

Clip-ons are the only way to wear this statement-making oversized earring trend, as the weight would be too much for a pieced earring design, putting too much pressure on the ears. With clip-ons the designs sit perfectly on the ears, without drooping and without the risk of tearing or damaging your ears.

So why did clip-on earrings become so popular? Here’s a few fascinating facts:
During the 20th century pierced ears were considered uncivilized and so screw backs and clip-ons were invented to make it possible for women to wear earrings. 

Even though both pierced styles and clip-ons are desirable today, many of the top costume jewelry designers, such as Kenneth Jay Lane and Miriam Haskell, still prefer to create their beautiful designs with clips.

Costume jewelry is notoriously crafted from large bold stones of various colors, sizes and shapes. The more elaborate the design, the heavier the earrings may become; so clip-ons make the most comfortable and flattering choice. 

In addition to this, clip-on earrings will not drop down the ear, they’ll sit exactly where you want them to – essential for creating a striking impression, whatever the occasion!

Follow these easy steps to wear your clip-ons in ultimate comfort: 
• Alternate days between wearing heavy clip-ons and more lightweight earrings to give your ears time to recover.
• Always use clip-on pads to reduce the tension on your ear lobes.
• When wearing clip-ons, we recommend removing the earrings every few hours and massage the area that was under the clips to relieve any pressure.

Clip-on earrings have been long been a favorite amongst celebrities and on the catwalks, so why not take the time to give them a try and enjoy them too?
