FLAT BACK EARRINGS

Everything you need to know when it comes to styling, sizing + installing your nap earrings.

FAQ'S

WHAT ARE FLAT BACK EARRINGS?

Flat back earrings are stud-like earrings that have a flat backing, specifically crafted to provide enhanced comfort and stability during prolonged wear. Take a look at our nap earring styles!

WHAT METALS ARE THEY MADE OF?

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.

WHAT IS GOLD FILL?

Gold fill provides the look of solid gold jewelry without compromising on durability or affordability. Because every piece of jewelry is handmade by Team HN, we are able to offer this more affordable alternative. Learn more about our metals here.

WHY IS THE BACKING A DIFFERENT COLOR?

Our Backs are made with Solid Titanium. Titanium is known for its strength, durability, and excellent hypoallergenic properties. Given the backing's placement on the back of the ear, this color variation is hardly noticeable whilst being worn.

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY FLAT BACK EARRINGS?

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.

WHAT SIZE EARRING SHOULD I BUY?

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 backings specifically designed for standard ear lobe 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. 

HOW DO I PUT ON MY FLAT BACK EARRINGS? - INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS

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.

THE EARRING ISN'T FITTING INTO THE BACK?

There's a bit more to it than simply sliding the pin into the backing. By following the steps in the install instructions in the previous question, you will adjust the pin end of your earring to have a slight bend. This bent pin is what creates tension when inserted into the backing, and therefore, keeps the earring secure! If the post is not bent, the earring may fall out.

For more help, reach out to a local piercer and request their help with installing the earring.

WHY IS THE EARRING BENT?

We pre-bend each pin to make your install day just a bit easier! All you need to do is slightly adjust the pin to your liking and put on your new studs. See our install instructions above for more info! :)

HOW DO I MAKE SURE IT STAYS IN?

Ensure that the earrings are securely fastened. If you're uncertain about the installation process, consider seeking professional assistance or guidance from a trusted piercing expert to guarantee a snug fit.

Avoid excessive tugging, pulling, or twisting, as these actions can compromise the integrity of the backing or the earring itself. Additionally, be mindful of activities or situations that may subject your earrings to undue stress or potential displacement. For instance, during rigorous physical activities or while changing clothing, exercise caution to prevent accidental dislodging.

Periodically inspect your earrings to ensure that the backing remains secure and tight. If you notice any signs of loosening or instability, promptly address the issue by adjusting the backing.
