Cynthia loved fine jewelry. She especially liked pieces with exotic and unusual gemstones.
Over the years, she had accumulated a gorgeous collection of fine, not fake gold rings, bracelets, necklaces, and pendants.
The Non-Pierced Deserve Good Jewelry Too!
What Cynthia didn’t have, though, was pierced ears. Years ago, she had given up trying to find clip-on earrings in real gold to compliment her other jewelry.
She ended up buying costume earrings from department stores. What!? As an opinionated Santa Barbara Jeweler, I told Cynthia she deserved better. She deserved the real thing!
“Oh, Joy! Hallelujah, I Get the Good Stuff!”
Cynthia was elated. Thus began a long and fun jewelry relationship.
We started by determining which kind of clips worked best for her ear lobes, to keep her fine earrings secure.
Then using a few of her favorite costume pieces as models, we duplicated them in real gold with real gemstones.
Gemstone Fun Begins
We began looking for unusual gemstones, next. We made earrings with tourmalines, exotic opals, and weird and colorful agates to name a few. Cynthia was over the moon. In no time, we were designing necklaces, as well, to go with all her new earrings.
Do You Wear Clip-On’s?
If you love fine jewelry you deserve earrings in real gold.
Don’t give up if one style of clip-on earrings has proven unreliable and uncomfortable in the past. Earrings come in lots of different shapes, sizes, and weights.
Often times too, the position of the clip—or the post—can be re positioned to accommodate your unique earlobes.
What’s the Takeaway Message Here?
Just like the old adage says, “If at first you don’t succeed…try, try again.” Don’t give up if you haven’t had success with clip-on earrings in the past. Talk to a good jeweler!
