The Clip-Ons

Ever wondered why sssooooo many earrings of the past are the clip-on/screw-back kind???

Have a guess!

Give up?

Well, pierced ears were considered uncouth and uncivilised in the early 20th century! Thus, a screw-back type of earring was invented, followed by clip-ons and screw-ons in the 1930s. Ear piercing only became a fad again in the 1970s!
