The history of clip on earring traced back to the mid-19th century, when women started to abandon their bonnets for styling their hair up. Earrings once again became fashionable. However, Victorian had a strong belief in unblemished skin - which means piercing the flesh was disrespectful.

As the time flew, the 20th century began and brought the invention of clip on earrings. It served as a solution to this problem - it allowed people to put on earrings but without piercing their ear lobes.

When the time came to 1920s, Art Deco Bob Hairstyle - short and boyish haircut made the neck and ears a spotlight of embellishments. Clip on earrings, once again, became fashionable and popular.
