Understanding earrings

 This page will guide you through the weights and measurements of earring comfort.

Earring weights :

When it comes to earrings, comfort in weight is key. To help you compare in understandable terms, we have comprised a list of U.S. coins and weights. This list provides a tangible item to hold in your hand for simple weight comparisons.

Penny & Nickel =5 grams
Dime = 2.27 grams
Quarter = 5.7 grams
Half dollar = 11.34 grams 

*Keep in mind that these weights are used as a rough estimate and personal weight preference will vary from person to person. 

Earring length :

We measure our earrings from the piercing hole, down. This means that the ear wire is included in the overall measurement of the product length description. If our listing denotes the earrings as 3" in length, this measurement includes the ear wire.

What are the most common earring closures?

There are many styles of earring closures and personal preference will vary. The most commonly used closures include traditional ear wires and push back closures. By design, ear wires tend to offer swing to the earring design, while push back earrings feel secure and snug against the lobe. Both styles are comfortable and great for everyday wear. Lever back closures provide extra security to the earring while still embracing a swinging style. Clip on and latch back earrings make an excellent choice for the unpierced ear.
