Types of Earring Backs


Whether you're looking to replace some lost earring backings, change out your current backs or complete your latest jewelry making project, there are a few things you may want to keep in mind as you shop for earring backs.

First things first, you'll want to try to match the material color. You can find earring backings in several different colors and materials. You don't need to worry about matching the material exactly to your earrings. For example, gold over sterling silver backings will work and look great with any pair of gold, gold over silver or gold plated earrings. Matching the color will keep your favorite pair of earrings looking sophisticated and stylish.

You'll also want to consider the backing type. There are a few different common styles of earring closures. While all these earring backs will keep your pieces safe and secure, you may find that some are more comfortable or easy for you to use. If you have arthritis or unsteady hands, you may find larger earring backs easier to use. Extra large or jumbo friction backs are a great option for those looking for something like that.

Bullet backs with pads can also be easier for those looking for a bit more to hold on to. For those looking to keep their posts covered, bubble over friction backs are a good choice. This style of back can prevent you from poking the pointy part of your earring or getting the post stuck in your hair or clothes. If you have difficulty with your hands, you may find this style a bit more difficult to use. The bubble is great at protecting your earring, but those with mobility concerns may find the shape harder to grasp.
