The diamond stud earring backs are a crucial, albeit often overlooked aspect of picking the right diamond stud earring for your own unique needs. However, there are two types of backs that really stand out – the screw backing vs. the push backing styles.
Screw backs are as the name literally implies are screwed together thanks to a threaded connection that, thanks to the ridges, creates a tight and slip-proof fit. These are the most secure type of backing for diamond stud earrings. The trade-off for the extra security is that they’re time-consuming to remove and can hurt due to rubbing over longer periods of use.
Push backs, also known as frictional backing earrings, are the most popular variant. The stud is quite simply pushed into the earring back and held together purely by friction. The push back design is incredibly easy to remove and makes it an easy and accessible variant of the diamond stud earring for utilitarian use. However, for more expensive diamond stud earrings the trade-off is the lack of security – any contact could dislodge the earring which could result in loss. The other trade-off is that heaver diamond stud earrings can create pressure on the reverse of the ear.
