Clip on earrings are so versatile and shouldn’t be relegated to only ear jewelry. While pierced earrings are secure and can be more comfortable to wear, they are limited to your ears. But the places you can wear clip on earrings are limited only by your imagination! Try clipping them on your lapel or a hat for a little burst of color or sparkle. My absolute favorite place to wear clip ons is on the cuffs of my jacket or long sleeved blouse. I use a needle and thread to tack them in place. It’s incredible how many people comment on my cuffs!
I’ve also worn them on a t-shirt pocket, jeans pocket, cloth belt, in my hair and sewn/tacked to a ribbon tied around my wrist. Use them as scarf clips, dress clips, etc. Geez, I’ve used them to hide a small stain on my favorite blouse that I just couldn’t let go…think of the places you could wear them. I scatter clip ons all over my clothes. Because they are generally smaller you can group them together or place them side by side for unique, delicious designs.
Picture sparkling clear rhinestones on each cuff or stunning ruby red rhinestones clipped on your shoes or sandals. Many of the vintage clip on earrings contain colorful beads, vintage plastic or luscious faux pearls. It’s easy to find places to clip!
It’s the small subtle accessories that tend to draw the most remarks. Check your favorite vintage jewelry shops for rhinestone clip on earrings. Many times you can find gorgeous pairs at yard sales and thrift shops. You’ll see how reasonably priced they are and you may just pick up an idea or two of your own. I say: If you have them, get them out of your jewelry box and enjoy. And, if you don’t have any, go get some of these small works of art and start your own trend!
