Screw back earrings are one of the most popular styles in earring styles. They are normally made with a post and a loop, which is the difference between a screw back and a twist back earring.
The post can be placed inside the lobe or outside. It does not matter which method is used due to being able to rotate the earring through its length. Either way, they are able to go deep into the bone as they are not come out of the ears when removed.
Rotating the earring through its length allows for easier insertion and removal as it moves through the ears. Being able to move it past its length also allows for changing out more pieces if need be.
Helps secure the piercing better than regular posts
When performing a post procedure, many jewelry artists will use regular posts to secure the piercing. These are usually thicker bars or posts that are connected to either a thin cross-bar or thinner ring post.
Screw back earrings are very popular because of how easy they are to put on and how beautiful they look. They can be either round or configuration, see below for difference.
Many times when screw back earrings are configured, it is considered more expensive due to the additional components required. Configuration requires taking two separate posts together and threading them together, then pulling out and using one of them.
Can be easier to put in and take out
Less expensive alternatives are screw back earrings. These can be easier to put in and take out. First, you press down on the screw back element and then you pull it out. You can also turn it clockwise to tighten the screw back element.
Second, you can also pull it out in either a clockwise or counterclockwise direction. This varies depending on which way the hair is coming from. It does not have to be one or the other, depending on what look you are going for.
Third, you just slide it into your lobed or rounder earrings and then you are good to go! You can also use these when we are cold winter earrings and I do not mind the cold steel against my ears.
May be better for people with sensitive skin
Screw back earrings can be very painful to remove. When the earring backs are removed, they are actually two pieces of metal connected by a hinge. When the earring backs are put back in, the new hinge opens the two pieces of metal and puts pressure on your ears.
This action can cause significant pain if it is not taken lightly. Many times, doctors will recommend a different method of removing screw back earrings, such as using a hairbrush or soft cloths to gently lift the screw back off of the ear.
If you have sensitive skin, then you should limit how much you handle your ears during follow-up appointments to avoid further pain.
May help keep your piercing from migrating
Screw back earrings are a fun way to keep your ears intact and secure. They are also a great way to learn how to choose screw backs.
Screw backs can be tricky at first. But, with a little practice, you will be able to create a good fit every time!
The best screw backs are tight and smooth, with very little give. If there is more of a chance for movement, then less durable jewelry will break more easily.
There are many brands and styles of screw back earrings, so look up some good ones to wear! Some examples include those with winged or wingless designates, ones with colored insert disks, and ones that have an attractive cover for the tip.
Comes in a variety of materials and colors
These are a popular mode of earring today. They can be paired with all sorts of looks, making them a always in-season item.
Screw back earrings are typically smaller and more circular in shape. These ears are larger than a screw top necklace or earring hole. You insert the screw back piece and then thread the end through the piercing and into the skin.
The other end is the removal ist, which is a pull-off type of de-spiriting. You take it out and enjoy your new look! These earrings can be paired with all kinds of styles, making them very versatile!
There are many types of screw back earrings, but the two main types are disc and ring accent styles.
Are easier to maintain
Screw back earrings are a trendy hairstyle that force you to maintain your earrings longer than the drop-and-keep scenario. Because the earrings are placed in the shape of your earring post, they must be kept on to maintain the shape.
Because they can be difficult to put on and take off due to this, they can be more exclusive than other hairstyles. People will always ask you to wear your screw back earrings because of this!
Additionally, screw backs can be more expensive if you do not want to purchase one with automatic shutoffs. They can also be difficult if someone takes out one piece first and then catches the others in their hand as they fall off.
Can be used for both piercings in each ear
They were first introduced in the late 1970s as a alternative to the more traditional pierced earring size. They are typically longer and thicker than today, but they are still plugged into one or both ears.
They are typically made of metal or plastic and held in place by a ring that is placed inside of aogumenta, which is an elastic material used to stretch out the ring. The ring is then passed through a delicate instrument called a clomidor, which is used to shape the earrings.
These can be very expensive but can take many years to perfect your craftsmanship. Once they are done, they must be sent off to be poled and shaped again, which can take more time depending on how fast you were taking care of them.
