This earring revelation is blowing people's minds

Everybody is changing and I don’t feel the same.

CHELSEA SMITH POSTED this jewellery revelation over the weekend and we’re just about DONE.

The clear backs of your earrings? They’re supposed to come off.

People could NOT cope

The tweet has been retweeted over 38,000 times by flabbergasted human beings, questioning every second of their entire life.

Some began trying it out for themselves

Some offered a reason you should keep the plastic on

Of course, there’s always one

But is there any evidence around to support either theory?

Watchmakers and jewelers Esslinger.com sell the transparent backs which they call ‘earring clutches’ .

This type of ear clutch is perfect for those looking for extra comfort while wearing heavier earrings.  The plastic disc acts as a stabilizer dispersing the weight of the earring more evenly and prevents your earrings from falling forward and looking droopy.

While over on the Experience Project, a user asked what the clear backs were actually for, back in 2007.

Answers were similar to Esslinger’s guess, but many argued, saying they were made…

to keep earrings from coming off the packaging. I never actually wear them.
to hold them on the display or earring cards and some (especially ear studs) are to hold them in place on the ears . . . I use to do jewelry trade shows.

In conclusion, there’s a lot to be said for preference.
