Lever back earrings are a popular choice for casual days since they can carry almost any kind of stone and are very convenient to put on and take off. This type of earring is also very secure, as the entire earring hangs on an enclosed hoop, reducing the chances of the earring slipping off. The design is perfect for those who like to wear earrings while staying active!
How to Wear a Leverback Pearl Earring
The leverback design works best with gemstone, diamond drop and pearl earrings. Pearl earrings are particularly popular because they can either be classy and formal or casual and easy. To wear these earrings with style, choose designs with the pearls dropping just below the earlobe. Drop earrings tend to be more fashionable and are suited for more formal occasions because they look more elegant and they sway with movement. Leverback earrings with a single pearl on each side are casual and perfect if you want to add a touch of elegance to your usual ensemble of white tees and a pair of jeans, or other such casual attires.
One of the more common problems with leverback earring is that a poor design often causes the pearls to hang too far forward, dropping them out of sight. This is especially heightened if the pearls are more firmly attached to the metal band that loops down to complete the back of the earring. Fortunately, earring stoppers are easy to acquire and stop the problem. Stoppers are made of clear plastic and inserted behind the pearls so they are not visible.
While you can wear leverback earrings with almost any kind of hairstyle, they are accentuated well with a short hairstyle, such as a pixie cut or a really short bob. If you are in love with your long hair, you can also pull the hair to the side in a side braid or a side ponytail to draw attention to the earrings instead of hiding them behind your hair. An updo will always be classy and will equally show off the pearls.
