After repiercing my ears to have them close a second time, I dreaded clip ones because the clamp is usually tight and my ears are sore before too long. Bought these because the spring clamp was one I had never tried. This spring clamp is much softer on the ear and I wear them all day long with no discomfort!! When wearing they look like pierced earring and I love it. Will be ordering more. Thank you for a comfortable and wearable earring.
