We all know that there is a world of different types of earrings, which ones are more comfortable, which ones look better, and so on. However, we never take into account how important the choice of the right clasp can be for an earring.
Therefore, today, we would like to talk to you about a very important thing in earrings for women's ears: the most important types of earring clasps nowadays. We consider ourselves experts in this subject since we take care of choosing the most suitable type of clasp depending on the design of our LAVANI earrings, so, dare to discover different types of earring clasps.
We know that there are not only these closures, but there can be many types. For these, we will tell you the solution later; for now we want you to learn their names.
1. Butterfly or snap closure of earrings
The butterfly clasp for earrings, also known as pressure clasp is the most common and we are sure that we all have some lost at home. It is the one we use the most in LAVANI earrings. The butterfly earrings clasp allows a medium-high fastening, besides being comfortable and easy to adjust. Take a look at some of LAVANI's earrings with butterfly or snap closures:
Many times, we fall into the idea that a press-fit nut has a super short use, because many times they end up not fitting well, or simply do not give us the fastening we need.
So pay attention, because if you use butterfly clasps or snap closures, we are going to show you a very simple trick to make it fit perfectly with your women's earrings:
This way, you can have your fasteners like new and end up spending money buying a lot of nuts. We leave you a drawing below so you know exactly how to do it.
The Catalan lock, originally known as catalan tancaCatalan clasp, is a very comfortable and sophisticated type of clasp with a very secure locking system. It is one of the most comfortable clasps due to the zero pressure that the Catalan clasp exerts on the earlobe. It is true that it tends to lose strength easily but it is very easy to adjust it with small pliers.
This type of clasp is not very used in costume jewelry, as it is usually used more in jewelry with materials such as gold, silver and pearls, in very traditional designs. In our case, you can find this very comfortable ring clasp in our Earrings With Catalan Clasp Mystere.
Although it is also often used in hoop earrings, at LAVANI it is the way we always use it. Like these LAVANI Jewels hoop earrings:
3. Omega or pinch fastener
The Omega type of clasp, more commonly known as pinch clasp, is used especially for large and heavy earrings, as its structure allows it to support much higher, without sacrificing comfort. It consists of two parts: the stud that goes through the earlobe, and a second part, in the shape of the Greek letter omega, which is superimposed with the stud, helping to hold it and adjusting the earring against the lobe.
It is also one of the favorite fasteners among the elderly, for its convenience when removing and putting on, and also to avoid losing the fastener at some point.
4. Screw lock earring
This is one of the safest, designed especially for sleeping with it and for babies. In LAVANI Jewels, we also use it a lot in those earrings designed not to be removed, such as the typical earrings or piercings for the second and third hole.
For example, like these piercings available at LAVANI:
5. Bar-type fastener
The bar type clasp is specifically designed for climbing earrings, because they run along the entire lobe and adjust correctly to our ear, being moldable. At LAVANI, we find them super comfortable and they are also very cool for girls who are looking for earrings without a nut. Many of our best sellers have them and you are delighted with how well they fit in the ear.
6. Hook fastener or hippie fastener
The hook fastener is known by various names: hook fastener, hippie fastener or hook fastener.
It is one of the most commonly used fasteners in earrings, but also the most dangerous, as it depends on its shape, it is very easy to lose.
It is normally used in dangling or long earrings. They are very easy to put on and take off and stylize the ears, so it is the typical closure that fits all types of ears as well as being an earring without a nut.
In LAVANI, as we know how easy it is to lose this type of earrings and wanting to offer the highest quality we only have a type of earrings with this type of super secure hook closure because it almost forms a form of hoop earring without joining. We show it here:
