What’s an ear jacket? This is an earring that involves an extra component that goes on your earring post, usually behind the ear lobe. It is held in place with a butterfly or clasp. This hangs down behind your ear lobe, as a part of your earring, giving that extra oomph to your look. Earring jackets are surprisingly subtle but can have a big impact on your overall look.
As multiple ear piercings have been moving into the mainstream, ear jackets offer those with a single ear piercing to have fun playing with styling options and multiple combinations. Even if you already have multiple piercings, you can wear an ear jacket in one of them.
What to keep in mind before buying them? If you’re not used to wearing heavy earrings or if you normally just wear studs then earring jackets will feel a little different. It’s best to buy the jacket and stud from the same place as these two components are designed to be worn together. The stud post will fit the jacket and the metal colors will also be a match.
