Apparently I’ve Been Wearing Earrings Wrong My Entire Life. I Had No Idea!

Those of us who have pierced ears, have all bought earrings with posts, that have backs which have a plastic piece surrounding the metal.  I don’t know about you but I am shocked to find out that this piece is not part of the design of the back of the earring.

Personally, I thought it was added to balance the earring in the ear…didn’t everyone believe this to be the purpose?  Evidently I was wrong, as were all the people I know, whom I asked about this.

It’s purpose, in fact, was created to keep the back of the earring from being lost in the packaging before being sold!  Once you have bought the earring the plastic circular piece is intended to be removed before wearing the earring.

Thanks to a photo posted on twitter by a woman named Chelsea Smith, the truth has been revealed!  Ok, I’m laughing…but I am really glad to know this, as the plastic always felt bulky and uncomfortable.  Watch the video below to see how to properly remove it.
