Clip Earrings: A Pierce-Less Sense of Style
By Sam Serio
Pierced jewelry is all the rage among both the young and
old, celebrities and commoners alike. But for various reasons, a person may be against ear
piercings. It could be because ear piercings are a bit of a hassle, and then again it
could be because body piercings are prohibited to a person because of religion or other
constraints. Clip earrings are therefore very convenient and suitable for some people. Not
everybody wants to be pierced, but everybody wants to be fashionable and chic.
Clip earrings are seldom uncomfortable, and even if one is
not accustomed to wearing them, they are easy to get used to. These jewelry items are
clasped onto the earlobe, then worn like regular pierced earrings. The clips are often
strong, so they don't blow away with the wind or get knocked into the nearest sewer drain
while the wearer is casually walking down the street. They are also very convenient; easy
to slip on or off in a pinch.
Various materials are used to make this user-friendly and
fashionable item. From inexpensive plastic to costly gemstones, they also come in a great
variety of designs from which to choose. Clip earrings are an excellent alternative to
costume jewelry -- that is, stuff you're going to wear once, and then again only during
the next blue moon. Jewelry to wear onstage, and only at specific productions, is an
example of this. This might be especially attractive to people who seldom wear earrings,
but are drawn by the thought of wearing earrings during special occasions. There is then
no need for ear piercings, when such a stylish accessory is already at hand.
Children may also prefer clip earrings as these
accessories are enjoyable to wear and to collect. Clip earrings are good for mixing and
matching, for swapping and other fun activities. Even if ones ears are already
pierced, clip earrings should still be considered -- they may come with uses and
"looks" that will pleasantly surprise any person.
