The Different Earrings Clasps
This type of clasp has real hooks: you just have to slip them into the hole to put them on your ears. You just slide the small hooked part, and the earring is well in place. This system is undoubtedly the most practical and easiest way to put on your Korean earrings.
Nevertheless, it is not the most secure, because nothing comes to block the hook. Fortunately, most of the models with a hook clasp are relatively large or present, so you will feel them well when they are in place: no risk of losing them.
These clasps can be found on hoop earrings, studs or pendants: probably because it is the most secure and practical type of clasp to use. It is composed of a rod that is passed through the hole of the ear, and a pushrod that slides on this rod to maintain the earring in place.
This type of clasp is generally composed of a mobile part that goes through the ear hole, and then locks into a small fixed part. It allows you to wear earrings in a flexible and light way, while guaranteeing a maximum security.
Clips are those famous clasps that clip onto the earlobe, so they don't need pierced ears to fit. They are sort of like little clips, but they attach themselves painlessly to your ear.
