The Basic Wear

For the non-piercer, clip on earrings are in style. They are one of the oldest clip ons and are still at it. This simple style is a two-part piece attached on the back of the earring. Mechanical pressure is used to hold the earring in place. Just a slight pressure. I’m sure anyone can handle it. It beats the real deal, having four to six weeks healing, anytime.
