How Can You Prevent Losing Your Stud Earrings?

Tue, Apr 11, 2023

One of the most frustrating experiences when wearing stud earrings is losing them. If you've ever experienced this, you know how disheartening it can be to lose your precious and expensive diamond earrings. This post will discuss how a double safety ridge on earring posts can help prevent the butterfly fastenings from coming off, how large, high-quality butterflies can prevent your studs from drooping, and the importance of strong posts and prongs to prevent metal bending and loose diamonds. We'll also touch on other alternatives, such as screw backs and alpha fastenings, and how our stud earrings at Shiree Odiz ensure the highest level of security for your precious gems.


Double Safety

Double safety ridges on earring posts are a simple design feature, but absolutely a game-changer when it comes to securing your stud earrings. These ridges act as a barrier, preventing the butterfly fastenings from accidentally sliding off the post. This innovative feature is one of the key reasons our customers at Shiree Odiz trust our diamond stud earrings to stay in place, no matter what the day brings.

Prevent Drooping

Drooping earrings not only look unattractive but can also put unnecessary strain on your earlobes. Large, high-quality butterfly fastenings ensure that your stud earrings sit perfectly on your ears, without the risk of drooping. Look for only the highest quality, larger, butterfly fastenings to guarantee that your earrings maintain their perfect position and offer the utmost comfort. Ideally, you'll also want your studs to come with a pointed martini design to fit as closely as possible to your ears.

Added Security

A strong and sturdy post is essential to keep your diamond stud earrings in place. Weak or low-quality posts can bend easily, which can cause the diamonds to come loose or even fall out. At Shiree Odiz, we understand the importance of having strong posts and prongs, and we use only top-quality materials to ensure your earrings remain safe and secure.

Screw Backs: A Good Alternative, But Not Perfect

Screw back diamond earrings are another option for security, but they come with their own set of drawbacks. Over time, they can become loose or get lost, and finding a perfect replacement to match the screw on the post can be quite challenging. While screw backs may offer a good level of security, they often can't be fixed tightly on your ears and in the long run become looser. We offer screw backs as a free alternative if you prefer, but generally advise otherwise. They're also notoriously awkward to screw on and off your ears.


Alpha Fastenings: A Higher-Cost Alternative

Alpha fastenings are a higher-cost option that provides a similar level of security as high-quality butterfly fastenings. These fastenings are often used in luxury earrings, but they can be quite expensive compared to butterfly fastenings and usually require an even thicker post which can be uncomfortable for some. They’re also not the easiest to take off as both sides of the fastenings need to be pressed simultaneously when behind your ear lobes.

At Shiree Odiz, we focus on providing our customers with the perfect balance of quality and affordability, which is why we opt for high-quality butterfly fastenings with double safety ridges. If you're familiar with alpha fastenings and prefer to have these for your diamond studs, please contact us to upgrade.



Losing your diamond stud earrings can be a heart-wrenching experience. However, by choosing earrings with double safety ridges, large high-quality butterfly fastenings, and strong posts and prongs, you can significantly reduce the risk of losing your precious gems.

So, if you're looking for diamond stud earrings that combine elegance, security, and comfort, look no further than Shiree Odiz. Our commitment to quality and innovation ensures that you can wear your earrings with confidence, knowing they're safe, secure, and looking fabulous.
