Why Are Clip On Earrings In Fashion?

Even if you have pierced ears, vintage clip on earrings are still a fantastic option. While most earrings are created for pierced ears today, vintage and antique pearl earrings were more often created with clip on or screw on latched. Before the Victorian era, it wasn’t the custom to pierce your ears, so early pearl earring examples are likely to be clip on. This means that there’s a wealth of antique pearl clip on earrings to choose from, and now that pearl earrings are so in vogue, it’s the perfect time to add some unique antique pieces to your collection.

Which Metals Suit Pearl Clip On Earrings?

When choosing the perfect clip on pearl earrings for you, it’s important to consider which metal to go for. Like with any jewellery purchase, you should consider which metal matches best with your skin tone and, of course, which one you’re most drawn to. When it comes to pearls, both yellow gold and white gold can look fantastic, but they will have a slightly different effect. While clip on pearl earrings in gold will create a warm aesthetic, highlighting the cream and yellow tones within the pearls, white metals will create a more modern and clean-cut look – perfect for those with cooler skin tones.

Another option if you’re looking to create a particularly feminine and romantic style is pairing pearls with rose gold. Like yellow gold, rose gold brings out the warm hues of pearls.
