Great to see the clip on pearl earring becoming popular again and the neat no nonsense “close fit to the ear lobe” clip on design. There are many of us who don’t want to pierce their ears but find it quite difficult to get clip on earrings of any sort to say nothing of a pearl clip on earring. Enter Julleen Jewels with a wonderful array of bezel set pearls.
When a clip on on the back of an earring is required it needs a saucer base for the actual lever back clip to sit on. This requires more metal to make a flat spacious surface for a clip on to be soldered to, rather than say, a simple post being added to the back of a pearl for the stud style.
This is where expertise comes in handy. The dying art of setting pearls into bezel bases is not handled by many jewellers today as it’s a job that requires using hand made (hands on) skills, understandably it’s not high on the list of designs to make, as the percentage of people with pierced ears is quite high, therefore the lower percentage belongs to those who do not and so why bother catering to them. The person requiring a clip on sits around 30 percent. Therefore you can understand why jewellery makers tend to go for the easier design and cater largely to people with piercings. I saw a niche in the market here and as I fall into the category of non pierced ear women, well, you can see why I chose to make a good variety of clip on earrings in pearl and some, if not as many, gemstone clip ons. I don’t do hallmarked gold settings but I do make Hallmarked Sterling with pure gold microns (vermeil).
I am very proud to say at Julleen we have loads of lovely bezel set pearl clip on earrings. I lovely new selection of recently made earrings in gold vermeil are now available in my Etsy store. Take a look see, you may find just the most perfect earring that will last for decades right here.
