For our customers who may be considering purchasing some earrings we offer the following informative article.

The Origin of Clip-On Earrings

Earrings for non-pierced ears were virtually unheard of until the early 20th century, when piercing of the ears was considered uncivilized. Affluent Victorian women wanted to wear earrings but considered the idea of putting holes in their earlobes to be a vulgar disgrace and a screw back type of fitting was invented so that ear piercing was no longer necessary. The popular style of clip-on crystal chandelier earrings is now an iconic symbol of Victorian era fashion.

Clip-on earrings, in the form of screw back, enjoyed another popularity surge in the early 1900s; the popular short hairstyles worn by many women of the era allowed ear adornments to become a focal point. Typically Diamante clip earrings became popular in the 1920s for their simple, elegant styling.

Around 1930’s clip-ons, spring clips as we know them today, were invented and both styles were widely used for earrings for the next 40 years until a resurgence of popularity of pierced earrings in the 80's.

Advantages of Clip-On Earrings

Ear piercing can present problems for some women in the form of irritation or a dermatitis type of infection, while others just do not want their lobes pierced. Hence clip-ons are a very practical alternative. They can also be a good choice for young girls.

Another advantage is for heavy chandelier style earrings when wearing them frequently it can cause the ear piercing or even earlobe to stretch. For women with pierced ears who wear earrings infrequently there is a risk the hole in the lobe will heal.

Many women who have their ears pierced will still wear clip on earrings occasionally because they are so versatile.

Strong positive clips that do not hurt and are comfortable are the critical component of clip on earrings. They need to be firm enough to hold the weight of the earring without causing discomfort.

Types of Clip-On Earrings

All clip-on earrings rely on some type of clasp or clip that attaches to the earlobe. Here are the most common clip-on earring types.

Traditional Paddle Back Clip - Paddle-shaped with a hinge at the bottom, most suitable for heavier earrings.

Simple Clip - Smaller curved paddle, works better for lighter or smaller earrings.

Pierced Look Clip - Narrow spring clip for small and thin earrings, simulates the look of pierced earrings.

Mini Clip - Small clip used for children's earrings or smaller styles.

Simple Screwback Clip - Does not include a hinge, must be screwed and unscrewed to wear and remove, common in vintage earrings.

Hinged Screwback Clip - Includes hinge and screw, offers dual adjusting for comfort and security.

Magnet Back - Opposing magnets are set into the front and back of the earring to hold it onto the earlobe through magnetic force.

Clip on earrings are available in many different styles including Chandelier, Drop, Dangle and Hoop.

a History of Mother's Day Australia .

In Australia, Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May.

The tradition of giving gifts to mothers on Mother's Day in Australia was started by Mrs Janet Heyden, a resident of Leichhardt, Sydney, in 1924. She began the tradition during a visit to a patient at the Newington State Home for Women, where she met many lonely and forgotten mothers. To cheer them up, she rounded up support from local school children and businesses to donate and bring gifts to the women. Every year thereafter, Mrs Heyden raised increasing support for the project from local businesses and even the local Mayor. The day has since become commercialised. Traditionally, the chrysanthemum is given to mothers for Mother's Day as the flower is naturally in season during May (autumn in Australia) and ends in "mum", a common affectionate shortening of "mother" in Australia. Men will often wear a chrysanthemum in their lapels in honor of mothers.

As Australians, we love getting the chance to give back to our mothers, especially on Mothers Day. Mothers Day is regarded as the most meaningful special day by Australians, superseding the importance placed on Remembrance Day, Valentine’s Day, and even Father’s Day. In fact, almost half of Australians rank Mothers Day as their most significant special day of the year (excluding public holidays).

Interestingly, while 168 countries celebrate Mother’s Day as an established tradition, just over half of those countries (51%, Australia included) celebrate Mother’s Day do so on the second Sunday of May. Other countries have adapted an alternate date linked to women through historical significance or religious significance.

Choosing the right Mothers Day Gift isn’t always an easy task. Our bust lifestyles often act as a deterrent to activating the genuine, heartfelt generosity we feel towards the woman most dear to us!
