Flat Back Earrings: Everything You Need To Know

Flat Back Earrings: Everything You Need To Know

When style meets comfort.

Are you tired of constantly changing your earrings or taking them off when you want to lay down? We have just the thing for you! In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of ordering and installing your new semi-permanent (and gorgeous) Flat Back earrings! Made to be worn comfortably, day and night.


Step 1: Adjust Tension as Needed
Before your earrings are shipped to you, we will slightly pre-bend the front pin for your convenience. Begin by aligning the Front (pin end) of the earring with the Titanium backing and gently sliding it about halfway into place. To ensure optimal fit, you may need to make slight additional adjustments for more tension. If so, very gently bend the pin end, taking care not to overdo it and risk damaging the pin.

Step 2: Insert Earring into Piercing
Once you've achieved the desired tension, carefully insert the earring's Back into your piercing hole.

Step 3: Secure with Front and Back
Complete the installation by sliding the pin end into the Back. This ensures a secure fit for your earring during daily activities. The tension created in the previous step will help keep the earring in place.

And there you have it! You have successfully installed semi-permanent and gorgeous earrings that you can comfortably wear day and night.

*Be Gentle! When adjusting the earring to fit snugly into the back post, always bend it gently. Excessive force or haste might damage the pin, affecting its functionality and aesthetic appeal. Please refrain from using pliers or any other tools to bend the wire of the earring.
**Hot tip: When installing or removing your earrings, it's advisable not to do so over a sink or any other open space. This reduces the risk of accidentally dropping or losing the earring components, ensuring you can enjoy them for years to come.
***If you find any issues, feel the earring becoming loose, or require adjustments, address it promptly. These earrings are designed to serve as semi-permanent pieces, offering both beauty and durability when cared for correctly.
****Need help installing? Make an appointment with your local piercer and they can help you install your new semi-permanent earrings.
Remember, it's important to take proper care of your earrings and clean them regularly. Enjoy your new, hassle-free earrings and embrace the beauty they bring to your everyday life!


Our Flat Back Earrings are hand-crafted in studio, so we can customize each Front to your liking! Order in either 14K Gold Fill, Rose Gold Fill, or Sterling Silver for a more budget-friendly option, OR try our Solid 14k Gold or Rose Gold if you're looking for even longer wear and if you have metal sensitivities. Each Back (otherwise known as the post) is crafted from Titanium, ensuring both durability and hypoallergenic properties for enhanced comfort and wearability.

14K Gold Fill & Rose Gold Fill

When it comes to choosing the perfect metal for your Flat Back earrings, 14K Gold Fill is a fantastic option. It is made by bonding a layer of 14K gold to a base metal, resulting in a durable and long-lasting piece of jewelry. With 14K Gold Fill, you get the look and feel of solid gold at a fraction of the price. It is also a great choice for those with metal sensitivities.

Sterling Silver

Sterling Silver is a classic and timeless choice for Flat Back earrings. It is a popular option due to its affordability and versatility. Sterling Silver is made up of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. This combination gives it strength and durability while maintaining its beautiful silver shine.

Solid 14k Gold or Rose Gold

If you're looking for the ultimate luxury and durability, Solid 14k Gold or Rose Gold is the way to go. These metals are made up of 58.3% pure gold and other alloys, making them highly valuable and long-lasting. Solid gold or rose gold Flat Back earrings are an investment piece that will stand the test of time. They are also a great choice for those with metal sensitivities, as they are hypoallergenic and nickel-free.

Customize your Flat Back earrings with the perfect metal that suits you best!


When it comes to selecting the perfect flat back earrings, choosing the right size can be a bit tricky. After all, you want earrings that not only look great but also fit comfortably in your ear. We are excited to announce the launch of our new collection featuring 8mm Titanium backings specifically designed for standard ear lobe piercings or second piercings.

We understand that everyone's ear-stacking needs and sizes are different. That's why we offer custom orders for smaller sizes. If you would like a shorter post for a helix or conch piercing, simply get in touch with our team at HN, and we will be happy to assist you.
