I have a pair of 1CTW. Diamond studs set in white gold .
I have lost one of the earring backs and need a replacement pair of backs. Any suggestions of what y'all think /feel the best out there would be ? TIA !:smile:

My favorite are very tight fitting plastic backs, not the disks.

I'd take the earrings to your jewellers and have them put screw-back posts on them personally.

Mine have very wide flat backs.
My earlobes are very thin and one is slightly torn so if I wear screw backs, they tilt forward too much.

I have the "elephant" backs in plat. They keep your studs upright and are secure.

I don't care for screwbacks unless you plan to leave them in long term.

What are elephant backs? My larger studs always droop.
They are oversized backs...quite substantial, almost as big as the plastic disks. I also had my studs set in a martini setting, 4 prong, and that seems to help as far as drooping.

Oh yes I know what they are! I need to find some. Thank you!
I have larger studs, too. These work like a charm. Mine drooped before I got these backings. You can get them in silver, 14k, 18k and plat.

I have always had screw backs, yes they do take a bit longer to put on and take off but I have always found them to be secure.

Agree. Mine are screw back from blue nile and sometimes I wish they weren't such a pain to get off so I could clean them more but I NEVER worry about them falling off!!
