Secure, Stylish, and Comfortable

At Steven Singer Jewelers, we know that choosing the perfect pair of earrings is a big decision. With so many styles, sizes, and materials to choose from, it can be overwhelming. Once you pick the perfect earrings, don't forget to consider the importance of earring backings. The right earring back can make all the difference in comfort, security, and style. How do you pick the right backings?

Silicone Safety Backs

Our silicone safety earring backs are Steven's top pick, and they come FREE with every pair of eligible Steven Singer Jeweler post-back style earrings! While metal earring backs are most commonly provided by other jewelers, traditional metal backings can be prone to bending or shifting when worn over time. This can result in a less secure fit, increasing the risk of losing an earring. On the other hand, our silicone earring backs have a metal type center surrounded by grippy silicone to provide a secure fit that is snug against the earlobe and to prevent the earring from slipping out. Unlike metal earring backs alone, our silicone backs are flexible and won't bend or become distorted with regular wear, ensuring a long-lasting, comfortable fit. 

Comfort is just as important as security when it comes to earrings and silicone safety backs also make a lovely alternative to metal friction or screw backs. The soft silicone provides a snug fit to prevent the earring from falling out and is comfortable behind the ear. They are also hypoallergenic, making them an ideal choice for those with sensitive skin.
