Leverback Earrings came to prominence in the 1880’s as a more secure, style of earring fitting vs the traditional post or hook fittings which had been used since antiquity.Lever Back Pearl Earrings

The initial popularity of Leverback Earring fittings for Fine Jewellery, in Silver or Gold, was due to the fact that they decreased accidental loss of an earring due to their secure hinged clip fittings.

Gold Leverback Pearl Earrings

Leverback Earrings are also called ‘snap back’, ‘key’ also ‘European Fitting’ or ‘German Wire’ earrings, being initially more popular in Europe than the US, and can be used to create both a stud or drop and dangle effect.

At Scintilla Fine Jewellery we stock a wide range of Pearl Earrings with Leverback fittings, including Button Stud, Coin Pearl & Drop & Dangle Styles.

Coin Pearl Leverback Earrings

Prices range from just £19.95 for our 6mm Leverback Drop Earrings through to £99.95 for our 7mm Round Akoya Pearls on 14ct Gold Lever Backs

Leverback Drop Earrings

The key feature of all Leverback Earrings is a clasp that snaps shut, and regular users of Leverbacks cite three main reasons for their choice of fitting:

  1. Comfort – They rounded both front and back, so are comfortable even when you are lying down.
  2. Security – As Jewellers we’ve been contacted by people who’ve lost a Hook Earring or even a Stud Earring, however we’ve never been contacted by someone who’s lost a Leverback Earring. These fittings snap closed and aren’t going to fall off even if you are playing sport! They are a great choice for high value items in gold with precious jewels such as pearls.
  3. Style – Leverbacks make no style compromise and look beautiful both with Drops hanging below the ear, and even can be used, as with our Button Pearl Earrings, to create a snug fit on the front of the ear.
