We are going to show you some friction and screw earring backings. We have a few different ones here in
different sizes and with different holes. With friction push backs the most
important thing to check is that the hole is a little bit bigger than the
post. For example this post is about 0.6mm and this earring back
that we’re going to be using has a 0.95mm hole. We just know that from the product specifications. So we are just going to put that in there. Works just fine, it holds nice and strong. You won’t have to worry about it coming
off. And we’re going to use another stud earring with the same earring back. This one’s a lot thicker, about 0.85mm but it works just as well. These push-back earrings are basically interchangeable between those posts.
It is a lot easier to find push backs to work with the stud earring or post
but screw backings are not as easy. You have to make sure that the hole size
and the thread count match. The thread count is the number of threads per inch on the post. With screw backs you don’t have the same
flexibility with the different size post and the
thread count has to match exactly or it won’t screw in properly. It’s easiest to buy these as a set if possible but if you have any questions about which post and
backings are compatible, Just ask us!
