Hello ladies,

I have a question regarding Cartier love earring (huggies) backings. I am aware that the current models in the store has clip on type backings but I have also seen the traditional posts and even un-pierced versions. Are they all authentic from different time periods? Also, I realize the white gold huggies are no longer available without the diamonds. Did they ever make versions without diamonds? I’d appreciate it if anyone could enlighten me. I am most interested in purchasing love earrings in WG without diamonds with clip on/snap on backings but can’t seem to find it anywhere. Would I be able to find a used one somewhere that is authentic? Thanks in advance!

Could someone enlighten me? I’ve done some research and I know sometimes they have different backing/posts for earrings made in 1997 but I am unsure how often they changed the designs.
