If you are shopping for earrings, we can provide you with many closure methods.
Push back, sometimes called Post or Stud earrings - A smooth post extending through the pierce with a simple push on (compression) back, most often used for earrings with gemstones or smaller fixed shapes
Screw back - The earrings post is threaded and the back screws on.
Ladies patent (Also commonly known as a hinge back) - This style earring provides a hinged bottom arm that snaps open or closed.
Russian patent (similar to the hinge back) - This earring has a hidden closure on the back side.
African hook (sometimes known as a French hook) - These fish hook style earrings are inserted through the pierce in the ear and simply dangle.
Brizura or nursery clasp - The clasp latches in the front, where the hook is inserted into the eyelet.
Switching to circles - tapered side earrings pass through the pierce in the ear and snap into the opposite side of the circle, or engages in a fork-shaped clasp at the other end.
