There are many reasons for choosing to wear clip-on earrings. Your body might reject piercings, you might want to be able to remove your jewelry quickly, or you might simply not want to get your ears pierced.
This doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to wear the latest trends or have a huge range of choice. Whilst in the past there may have been a small amount of clip-on earrings to choose from, these days with sites like Etsy, you'll find a lot of independent makers catering to these potential customers.
This gorgeous design is by Enna Jewellery, and personally one of my favourites from their collection. In my top 5 of Etsy stores, they have a large selection of trendy jewelry that ranges from retro to modern, and to suit practically any outfit.
Blush Bridal Earrings
These beautiful blush earrings from Iloniti are one of their most popular designs; perfect for formal occasions to really make a statement.
With matching necklaces and bracelets, many customers have used this set for their wedding or other black tie events.
Black Tassel Earrings
If you keep an eye on current trends, you definitely will have seen tassel earrings from designers such as Oscar de la Renta and Saint Laurent.
These earrings from MiniMice29 give you the design and feel without the price tag, and you don't need to get your ears pierced to wear them.

These handmade dangling earrings from Mashugana are made from Swarovski crystals and feature these pacific blue opals that will definitely stun on a night out.

Another one of my favourite picks from Olivia Divine, these feather gold earrings will definitely be the envy of everyone in the room. These gorgeous handmade earrings feature a strong turquoise colour, complimented by orange and gold details.
