Fashion Edits For Clip Earring Lovers

What Clip On Earrings Should We Use On Megan Fox?

Red lipstick. Shimmery dress. The scent of athletic bodies in the hot city. Yes, you guessed it, it’s the Armani Code advert with Megan Fox! You remember the one:

We’ve been asked to kit out a photoshoot inspired by this sexy, edgy look with our clip on earrings. Which of our clip on earrings would you use if you were going to play Megan Fox for the day? Please let us know before the end of the week when, Caroline, the photographer running this shoot, will pick a winner who’ll not only get to see her style guidance used a photoshoot but will get a special prize too!

What’s the Difference Between a Clip On Earring Cushion and a Clip On Earring Slipper?

Clip on earring cushions and clip on earring slippers superficially look very similar. They’re both designed to slip over the paddle fastening of paddle back clip on earrings:

Both can be reused but it’s here that the similarity stops. Clip on earring slippers and clip on earring cushions are actually intended for different purposes although some people get them confused.

  • Clip on earring cushionsclip on earring cushions are a small piece of foam padding that can help if you find your clip on earrings are pinching. This is especially true if you have a sensitivity on a certain part of your ear and want to spread the pressure.
  • Clip on earring slippers – clip on earring slippers probably should have been called clip on earring non-slippers because they’re designed to help with keeping the clip earring on your ear. It’s common knowledge that if you want to wear a really big earring, clip ons are the way to go. But once you’ve chosen your huge bling chandelier, they will be no more memorable a way to depart Strictly Come Dancing in shame than if your earring comes flying off with a fling of your head! Clip on earring slippers help give big clip on earrings extra traction as they have a gummy surface that keeps them in place. It’s true that clip on earrings do rarely come off unless knocked, but there are sometimes you just can’t have a wardrobe malfunction – a wedding or when entertaining.

Clip on earring slippers are also useful for those with torn or short ear lobes who otherwise find it hard to attach a clip on earring. They can give the extra staying power needed so you can get on with enjoying your day simply looking beautiful.

Out With The Old, In With The New at Rodney Holman

Having been in the business for almost as long as I’ve been alive, it’s easy to think that Rodney Holman’s classic clip on earring designs will be around forever. Whilst they are made to last with luxurious 18 carat gold or rhodium plated finishes, the truth is that Rodney Holman does add new lines often and perhaps more sadly, retires other designs once sold out. In the last couple of months three such stunning clip on earrings have been consigned to the collector’s editions as all supplies sold out. I’m sure you’ll agree, each clip on earring design was timeless:

We’re really sorry to all those of you who’ve contacted us requesting these clip ons; despite being Rodney Holman’s biggest reseller by volume we can’t get any more of these for love nor money since production has now shifted to newer lines.

There is of course some light at the end of the tunnel. There will be new lines coming including a new mini-clip backed solitaire clip on earring and a circular crystal rimmed clip on earring with a choice of either cream or grey pearl centre. But you’ll have to wait for them! I’ll be meeting Rodney Holman later this week and we’ll be receiving his new clip earring collection in advance of it being launched at the Harrogate Fair. Watch this space for exclusive news!

Upcoming Clip Earring Collections

As there’s been a lot of requests for “when is this coming?” and “when are you doing more of that?” I thought I’d give a quick heads up on the calendar of clip earring collections due to launch over the next few weeks.

  4. Fiorelli Clip On Earrings
  5. Zandra Rhodes Clip On Earrings
  6. Park Lane Clip On Earrings

Adele Marie Bling It On!

Storming into the store in a brilliant ray of blinding bling, it’s Adele Marie London‘s A/W11 collection of clip on earrings! Here’s the top 5 things you need to know about Adele Marie jewellery:

  1. Adele Marie London was founded by Adele Vanderkar in the 1970s and Adele is still at the wheel today!
  2. Previous to founding Adele Marie London, Adele Vanderkar was the buyer for luxury department store Harvey Nichols of Knightsbridge where she honed her eye for detail and her taste for quality
  3. Although some lines are now made in the Far East, there are still many Adele Marie clip on earring designs that are made in Europe with Italy being a prime source and the UK another
  4. Adele Marie’s clip on earrings use crystals bought from the Swarovskiâ„¢ company to give them the best finish
  5. Adele Marie‘s signature mix of quality, edginess and sophistication has made them a hit in many fashion mags including You, Ok, Grazia, Style, Asiana, New, Look, First and the Sunday Express

Within this collection there are three main themes:

  • Italian Bead Clip On Earring Artistry
  • Luxury Button Clip On Earrings
  • Edgy Bling Clip on Earrings

Italian Bead Clip On Earring Artistry

Florence has been known as a centre for the arts and crafts of Italy for hundreds of years. From Da Vinci and Michaelangelo to Donatello and Botticelli, the greats have dwelt there and left their influence on it’s artistic culture. Small wonder then that fine hand made jewellery still comes from this area, often with hand made glass beads too. Our latest collection from Adele Marie captures some of that stirring in soul that the great artists leave with a range of clip on earrings handmade in Florence.

Due to the handmade nature of the clip on earrings in the Italian Artistry range there’s only limited numbers of each available.

Luxury Button Clip On Earrings

The button clip on earring is back like you’ve never seen it before. Whether in simple geometrics for everyday wear or in swarovski swishing sophistication, there’s a dash of something special to each of these reinventions. For daywear, we’re loving the Italian handpainted button clip on earrings…

Edgy Bling Clip on Earrings

If you wanted a premium costume jewellery line that can instantly take you in a nice dress and immediately upgrade you to “girl in the Vogue ad” status, Adele Marie is the queen of the statement piece…

Adele Marie’s colloration with Zandra Rhodes launches in a few weeks and whilst the two share similarities – an eye for quality and statement – the Zandra Rhodes clip on earring collection is markedly different in artistic direction to Adele Marie’s. Zandra Rhodes’ is a celebration of her iconic style, especially with inspiration from early works in textiles. Adele Marie’s is a romping, rich and at times sexual explosion of gorgeous materials laid oud with contrasting textures and with a boldness that is infectous. Well worth exploring!
