Earring Back Types

The backing is an important part of an earring, providing a secure closure and comfortable fit. Keep in mind, some earring styles work better with certain back types. Experiment with the different types to find the best fit for you!

Butterfly Back: A double looped piece resembling a butterfly that fits over a post. Variations on this design are called push back clasps. The basic post and butterfly back are usually used for stud earrings and lighter weight drop earrings.

Hinged Snap Backs: This clasp features a hinged post that snaps into a groove on the back of the earring. It is commonly found on hoops. Sometimes the hinged post is curved to provide more room to fit around the ear, sometimes called a saddleback.

Hook Backs: This earring backing is simply a long, bent post that fits through the piercing. Hooks have several variations, most notably the shepherd's hook and the French hook. While thin wire hooks reduce the weight of long earrings, making them more comfortable, they aren't as secure as other clasp styles.

Lever Back: A hinged lever snaps shut against the curved post to form a closed loop around the ear lobe. This clasp is very secure and good for large or medium sized styles that drop just below the ear.

Omega: Also called French clips, this clasp has a straight post and a looped lever. The hinged lever closes around the post and is held against the ear with pressure. The omega clasp is the most secure clasp, especially for the larger, heavier earrings.

Screw back: This backing is a slight variation of the standard post and butterfly nut back. Instead of pushing on the back, the nut twists onto the threaded post. A screw back post design is often preferred for expensive diamond stud earrings that require increased security.

About the Collection

Miriam Haskell opened her first boutique in New York's McAlphin Hotel in 1926. She created collections for the society women of her day, including Joan Crawford, Lucille Ball, and the Duchess of Windsor.

85 years later, the American jewelry house still continues to design collections for the contemporary woman, often collaborating with fashion tastemakers and top designers. Almost unheard of in today's marketplace, Miriam Haskell's creations are still made entirely by hand in the United States. Each bead, crystal and pearl is hand-selected and wired onto an intricate brass filigree to create a signature piece that may take as long as three days to assemble.

If history is any indication of the value of a Miriam Haskell piece, today's collections promises continued adoration for generations to come.
