Clip Earrings are the ones that have become quite popular for parties. No need to pierce the ear. All you need to do is to clip the earring in your ear and enjoy the elegance and grace. They are affordable, convenient and most important thing is that they are attractive. Faux jewelry was introduced long time back that replaced the traditional jewelry, designed to be worn only with pierced years. Clip on earrings are popular because mostly girls and boys like to have only one piercing on their ear and hence would like to wear multiple earrings without the pain of getting other part of the ear lobes pierced. So clip on earrings provide them with the facility to be away from the pain.
Throughout the centuries and across all cultures, adorning the body with jewellery has been integrated to express individuality, beliefs, or traditions. While earrings for pierced ears can be traced back thousands of years, clip on earrings are a relatively new phenomenon. However, like any good fashion, earrings have come in and out of style numerous times.
14k Gold clip earrings can be worn in any kind of party. Sometimes they are purely made of gold with small size and shape as that of letter C. Sometimes a pearl or diamond is attached to the base material of 14k Gold. Since 14k gold looks charming and is affordable, most ladies prefer to get these clip on earrings.
Some of the popular findings of clip earrings are hinged, gold-plated, screw backs, antiqued, cushion based, pierced like, etc. Teens often call clip on earrings as ?Chic earrings?. Its very interesting to know that some of the clip-on-earrings appear like screw gauge (something seen in physics laboratory).
Just to give a formal look to the earrings, dangle earrings were introduced in market. They come in all kinds like gold silver and other metallic material. Dangling earrings are party wear and have diamonds, zircon, gemstones and pearls stick on them.
Its very necessary that designers should choose such metal or material for the clipping part (that goes behind the ear) to be skin friendly.

Costume clip on earrings are sometimes too tight or become too loose through years of wear. Changing the tension of the clasp is not a difficult task. There is a paddle on the back of non-pierced earrings that can be removed gently with needle-nosed pliers. To adjust the tension, the owner can hold the paddle with the needle-nosed pliers and move the center prong away from the other prongs with a flat-faced pair of pliers to loosen the grip. The center prong can also be moved toward the other prongs to tighten the back of the earring. Small movements will still make a big difference in the feel of the accessory when worn.
