From ancient times people desired to look more attractive and they thought that jewelry could provide the necessary assistance. Earrings have a very long history of usage. A very long time ago people first faced the problem of designing efficient posts of earrings. At the early stages of human civilization having pierced ears with earrings was a sign of noble origin. Later there appeared a solution for non pierced ears, namely clips, but the problem of creating earrings with posts that would be reliable and easy to use still remained.
At the early stages of human civilization people were certainly not spoilt for choice in terms of the selection of earrings, to say the least about the kinds of posts available. If look more closely at the process of manufacturing earrings, it becomes evident that clips are much more effort-consuming and more difficult to create. Nevertheless creating posts for earrings that are aimed for pierced ears also requires creating some kinds of mechanism that will secure earrings without causing discomfort to the wearer.
Lucky for jewelry fans, the jewelry industry is very highly developed nowadays and this fact creates grounds for manufacturing of a staggering diversity of earrings with different posts. The traditional types of earrings with the kinds of posts like wires and clutch, which have a firmly established reputation with the jewelry fans, have not lost their appeal, and still remain among the most popular. However, new types of posts for earrings and clips are gradually appearing and they are likely to supersede the leaders of the earrings' pop chart. Modern materials are used, and modified in order to be compatible with the most sophisticated processing methods and correspondingly to contribute to the production of the posts types that would meet the dictates of popular tastes.
Different earring posts are designed in order to correspond to a specific purpose or situation. However, there are certain qualities that all posts types are required to possess. One of the most major prerequisite of all posts is their comfort in terms of wear and security. It stands to reason that no one would want to lose the cherished piece of jewelry owing to the failure of the earring posts design.
Therefore it would not be an exaggeration to state that when determining the leaders among posts types of earrings, one of the top criteria should be the reliability. Besides, when designing posts types the professionals put considerable effort into ultimately eliminating the potential discomfort in use and during wear. It is essential that earrings with certain posts should be nice in wear and not cause discomfort to the wearer, let alone the risk of cuts or other kinds of damage.
The variety of earrings with posts of different types gives an opportunity to even the most demanding jewelry gourmets with pierced ears and extremely sophisticated tastes to select something to their liking out of the tremendous variety of earrings available today.
