Lost earring post back - where to buy replacement?

  1. My mom lost the back post to one of her earrings-I believe they are a screw-back post (is that the correct term?) Where is the best place to find and buy a replacement or replacement pair?
     
  2. Your local jeweler will probably have them.
     
  3. Claire's sells packs of replacement backs.
     
  4. try eBay
     
  5. You didn't mention whether it is a nice pair of earrings (gold/diamonds) or a fashion pair.

    For earrings that are not terribly expensive, I have had great luck finding backs online by doing a google search. There are a lot of companies that supply products for people that make and sell jewelry. For example, those clear plastic "stops" that you can put on the back of fishhook earrings. I bought a pack at Claire's once and got maybe 20. For the same price at a online supplier I was able to get 150.
     
  6. ^ They are an expensive pair of earrings and I believe she is looking for white gold screw-back posts
     
  7. then she should go to a jeweler
     
  8. Nordstroms find jewlerty sells backs but I'm not sure if they sell the screw backs. You might want to call and ask. They are reasonable priced
