I was on the fence whether or not to order these. I kept looking at them and thinking they wouldn't work for me. I was a young adult in the 80's and almost ruined my pierced ears wearing the heavy earrings of that time. My left ear is a bit stretched and could use a little plastic surgery. Anyway, when I noticed in the description that these were described as clip-on's - I finally ordered them. However they are NOT clip on's. They are for pierced ears, but they do have a clip as well. I don't know how to describe it other than...once you place the post through your pierced ear...there is a back up clip that you snap onto your ear like a regular clip on earring. I actually have never seen earrings designed like this and I quite like it. Especially for heavy earrings because I think the clip takes some of the weight off the earring so your pierced hole doesn't stretch out so much when wearing them. These are a bit heavy....but the clip really helps. They are pretty big - measuring 5 inches long including the top post part. The almost touch my collar bone but I can get away with these (I guess I have a short neck). Beautiful. I'm keeping them.
