Clip on Earrings

Why We Love Clip On Earrings

Here at Heirloom Finds, we strive to cater to a variety of fashionistas with unique style requirements. One such type that often goes overlooked and under-celebrated elsewhere is the clip on earring wearer. Some people prefer to avoid needles and piercings for a number of reasons, and so must replace post backs and French hooks with clips and cuffs for styling their ear candy.

These crystalline baubles are anything but lackluster!

What we find particularly fabulous about clip on earrings is that they don’t stretch out the holes in pierced earlobes. They can decorate both pierced and unpierced ears equally, without leaving any trendsetter excluded. And if you want to further accessorize your wardrobe and establish yourself as a fashion maverick, clip ons make amazing additions to sweater necklines, shoes and more! Because they’re so versatile and lovely for any occasion, we’re thrilled to offer a range of both new and vintage clip on earrings for your perusing pleasure.

Clip on earrings are lovely for lobes and fabulous for sweater necklines!

Although ear piercing is one of the earliest recognized forms of body modification, it did not become a mainstream practice in the United States until the 1970’s. A glance at vintage earrings dating from before this decade reveals gorgeous arrangements of colorful crystals that are so easy to love. The boldly metallic mod artifacts of the 1980’s have their own appeal, while today’s clip on collections are artfully curated to accommodate the diva who would hate to miss out on an opportunity to accessorize just because she’s never gotten her ears pierced.

Glam up your denim with clustered vintage brooches and clip ons to match.

Are you interested in finding alternative ways to style these versatile baubles? Arrange your hair into an up-do and add one or a few clip ons for a wholly original coif when you need to make a memorable statement. Glam up your outerwear by fastening some earrings into your jacket’s buttonholes as an outrageous take on traditional brooches. These methods are particularly excellent for giving new life to old earrings that have perhaps lost their partners but still deserve some time to shine.

There’s no need to be intimidated by clip on earrings. They come in extraordinarily chic modern designs and fantastically retro compositions, and are oh-so appealing for their ease of use that makes accessorizing refreshingly simple. So don’t be afraid to rock these beauties!  You could be missing out on something truly, fashionably wonderful.

      So glad it was helpful Karen! Clip Ons are fun to play with and really great for larger styles, as they don’t drag your lobes down.

      Aw, thanks Christina! We came up with the “button hole makeover” because we are always looking for more ways to sparkle!

      If you find a comfortable pair like the ones we carry, you will quickly become a convert, Katey! We all love them for larger statement earrings.

    Wow, I would have never thought to do these things with clip ons! I have some old ones that I am now going to get out and look at totally differently. I love them on the jean jacket, so fab!
