As the incomparable Coco Chanel said, «There should be a lot of jewelry …». And the choice in the modern world is really impressive. In addition to the appearance, you should pay attention to the clasp of the products, it should be reliable and comfortable to wear. Jewelry is quite fragile, especially the castle suffers due to the frequency of use. Therefore, the fastener is an important detail of any product.
Pin — this is the part that goes through the earlobe.
Schwenza — This is the locking part of the lock.
What kind of earring clasps can you see?
English castle or shvenzovy. Classic. It is considered one of the most reliable locks, it can withstand even massive decorations. The disadvantages include a fixed size, so we recommend trying it on before buying to avoid hanging out or squeezing the earlobe.
French castle. Outwardly resembles a loop, but has a latch for reliability. Easy to manufacture, has a universal size, fits any earlobe. Often used in children’s models. It is not recommended to leave overnight, because. under strong pressure can bend.
Italian castle. Comfortable and versatile, fits any earlobe, works like a clip. It is better to shoot while sleeping to avoid loss. Over time, the latch wears out and the tension may weaken, in such cases it is better to take it to the master for correction.
Ring (congo). As a rule, they have a round shape, at one end a pin inserted into the ring. It is recommended to shoot at night.
Studs or carnations. Elegant and petite. There are pin and screw. The latter are considered more reliable due to the thread, but at the same time more difficult to operate. The pin version of the stud is fixed with a washer on a tight fit, stretches over time and begins to fall out. Do not choose a too long and sharp pin, there is a risk of skin damage.
The loop. The clasp is in the form of a loop, held only by its own weight. Earrings are easy to put on, suitable for any lobe, comfortable to wear. But choose well-balanced pieces so that the decorative part does not outweigh, otherwise the earrings will fall out and sag outward. Such locks are more often used in jewelry and inexpensive, because. high risk of loss.
cuff. Most often, cuffs have two attachments: the lower part is fastened like studs, and the upper part is attached to the cartilage of the ear. This look makes ear cuffs unusual, eye-catching, but this is also a minus. Mounting on the cartilage of the ear is unusual and causes discomfort to some.
Clamp. The choice of these models is approached carefully, individually. They should not put pressure on the earlobe, ideally, completely repeat the physiology and curves.
Broaches or chains. Light, thin and long chains pass through the puncture. Of the minuses, one can name their fragility and confusion in the hair. When putting on, you should be careful not to damage the ear, because the chain is pulled entirely through.
Staple. Ancient clasp, history goes back to the time of the pharaohs in Egypt. Today, such earrings are associated with gypsy ones. Outwardly, the product resembles a rocker, the decorative part is under the ear, it is recommended to remove it at night because of the size and the risk of deforming the product.
Pin. Variant of circular earrings, easy to use, the principle of the lock is similar to a pin. It’s better to shoot at night.
Clips. The only lock that does not require an ear piercing. It differs from Italian only in the absence of a pin. Practically not used in expensive products, tk. high risk of loss. Before buying, we recommend walking in them to understand the pressure on the earlobe.
