All About Clip-On Earrings

When we talk about clip-on earrings, the first thing that comes to mind is the retro styles that used to be in our grandmother’s jewelry box. 


We all used to love trying on those fun and funky pieces that littered their vanities.


Clip-on earrings have been around since Victorian times. In those times it was considered unladylike to pierce ears.


Clip-on earrings are a great fashion accessory for those who don’t like to wear pierced earrings.
