What Is a Post-Back Earring?

Post-back is one of the most popular ways to wear earrings. They’re sturdy, easy to put on and take off, and they don’t get lost as easily as other types of earring backs.

Know post-back earrings, the difference between post and stud earrings, plus other types of earrings in this article.

Post-Back Earring

Earrings are a perfect jewelry accessory for women of all ages. They are often considered an important part of a woman’s wardrobe due to their ability to enhance an outfit or simply add a touch of elegance and style.

Have Post Backs

Post-back earrings are a type of earrings with post-backs. The post goes through the hole in your ear and then is held in place by a small metal or plastic piece at the back of the post. This is called the “back” of an earring.

The post can be made of metal or plastic, but the most common material for posts is metal. Post-backs are used on many types of earrings, including studs, hoops, and drop earrings.

Many people prefer postbacks to other types of closures because they’re easy to use. They also allow you to wear your earrings with different types of clothing and hairstyles.

Different Types of Earrings with Post Backs

Different Types of Post Back Earrings

The type of earrings you wear is just as important as how you wear them.

The wrong earring can make you look older, or younger or even change your entire appearance. Fortunately, there are many different types of earrings available to suit any style and occasion.

Post-back earrings are available in many different types of earrings, including:


Studs are the most common type of earring in the world. They are small, simple, and very elegant. Studs are perfect for casual wear or to complement your work outfits. They come in all kinds of materials including gold, silver, and precious stones like diamonds and ruby, etc.


Hoops are another common style of earring that has a circular shape with either a single loop or multiple loops around the post. Hoops can be made from many different materials and come in a variety of sizes, including small and larger hoops that you can wear with your hair up or down.

Can be Worn by Both Women and Men

Hoop earrings can be worn by both men and women, although they were traditionally worn by women only up until recent years when they became more popular among men as well.

Dangle Earrings

 Dangle earrings are also very popular. They hang down from the earlobe and can be made from a variety of materials including gold and silver and can include precious stones like diamonds or pearls.

The length of dangle earrings can vary greatly depending on what style you choose but many have postbacks so they will stay securely in place when worn properly.

They are Versatile

They’re great because they’re so versatile; you can wear them with just about any outfit and style you like. The only issue is that dangles can sometimes be heavy, which can cause problems if you want lighter jewelry.

Chandelier Earrings

Chandelier earrings are a classic style of jewelry that has been in fashion for centuries. They are made up of multiple strands of beads that hang down from a central point, usually attached to a larger bead or other pieces. The length can vary greatly depending on the wearer’s preference and style.

Are Mostly Worn by Women

Chandelier earrings are often worn by women who want to add a little sparkle to their look without being too over the top. They can be worn with anything from jeans and a t-shirt or dressy evening wear. Because they come in so many different colors and styles, there is something out there for everyone no matter what your personal taste may be.

The best part about chandelier earrings is that they can be found in any price range from less than $10 all the way up to thousands of dollars (if you’re looking for something very special).

Screw Back Earrings

Screwback earrings have a tiny screw on one end with a notch on the other end. These pieces must be inserted into a hole in the earlobe before being twisted closed on themselves so that they are securely attached to your ears.

Screw Backs come in both plain metal and decorative designs that make your ears stand out even more than usual.

Clip-on Earring

Clip-on earrings are probably the easiest to use since they’re designed to go on without any help from you. Once you’ve got the right size, just slide them onto your earlobe and they’ll snap into place automatically.

The clip acts as both a back and a fastener, holding the earring securely in place. The only problem with clip-on is that they can’t be used if your ears aren’t pierced but if you have pierced ears and want something quick and easy, this is an excellent choice.
