Clip-Ons Redux

a-year-among-the-girlsFollowing-up on my earring transition post on Wednesday, some readers wrote that one reason they prefer pierced earrings to clip-on earrings was because of the pain that clip-ons inflicted on the ears.

I too have suffered the pain and agony of clip-on earrings, but I have found two solutions.

  1. Sometimes the clip-on earrings are too tight and need adjusting. Loosening the earrings’ grip on your ears differs depending on the style of the clip, but usually requires only a little bending of the offending clip.
  2. Even after loosening the clip, I have had earrings that persist in torturing my ears. In that case, I resort to slipping pads (like these) over the clips to soften their grip. That solves the problem in most cases.

Have a beautiful weekend!
