I had keloid scars for a major portion of my adult life, and once they were removed, I couldn’t pierce again. Regular clips wouldn’t work, so I couldn’t doll up and wear earrings period ;-( And then God blessed me to find these…game changer in my life. Whether you have keloids or issues with your ear lobes that make it difficult to wear pierced earrings, these are wonderful earrings for you. They make hoops out of Sterling silver, and handcraft the dangles to wear with them, so you can change up the look for every outfit.
