I keep finding that earrings come with backs in the wrong metal so I react to them, with tiny backs that I struggle to pick up and put on, or with big ugly plastic backs. I've never had a problem with surgical steel so I was pleased to find these, to replace all the ones I can't use.

Ever since my daughter had her ears pierced she’s always loosing the backs of the earrings. Bought these so we always have some spare.

All the earrings come with solid backs
But it's essential to have spares for inevitable moments
