Earring closures types.

In general there are many different types of closures in earrings, depending on the style. Earrings have been popular jewelry for both men and women for many years. Today, the types and styles vary from simple to those heavily adorned with jewels. With so many different varieties of earrings on the market, it is understandable that there are an equal number of closures and hinges for these pieces. Some of the most popular types are the following

French back closure or French wire.

French wires closures are popular on dangle earrings. These are designed for pierced ears and feature a piece of wire that resembles a fish hook. The wire slides through the pierced hole and holds the earring in place.
“French clip” or Omega closure.

The French clip or Omega back is another variation of a hinged earring closure design. This type closure back features a hinge in the earring design that allows the earring to be opened. The wearer then inserts a straight post into the pierced hole in the ear. The earring back snaps closed using the hinge design and the post enters an “o” shaped closure to lock the earring in place.
Hinged post closure.

The hinged snap back operates in a similar fashion to the hinged clip. However it was designed for use in pierced ears. The earring design spreads open with a hinge in the design. A person inserts a curved post into the pierced hole in the ear. Then, the curved post locks into a latch on the earring back to secure it into place.

Lever back closure.

Lever back earrings are a kind of earrings with a hook that fits through a pierced ear and meets with a clasp on the back side of the earlobe. The clasp connects with the hook, partially covering the part of the hook that extends through the pierced hole in the ear and out behind the earlobe. Some people wear lever back earrings because they like the look of these kinds of earrings. Others wear them because they are a kind of hook earring that is well secured on the ear.

Push back closure.

The single wire that juts out the back of an earring is the post or stud.  The post goes through the pierced earlobe and is held in place by a separate push-on clip that slides onto the post. These clips are called push-backs, push-back clips, friction-backs or tension-backs.

Screw back closure.

This backing features a basic bolt-and-nut design and is a slight variation of the standard post-and-finding clasp. The nut twists onto the threaded post.

Snap post closure.

A curved or straight post on the back of the earring snaps into a “v” shaped latch to secure the earring to the earlobe.
