Lever-back earrings

French ear wires

These earrings called "sleepers" have a particular type of spring fastener in lever form that closes behind the earlobe once threaded. More secure, they find their probable origin in the mid-nineteenth century. They were created at the time for a very specific purpose: to be worn at night to prevent the newly pierced holes from closing. Thus the earrings got their surname. This timeless and classic format transcends all fashion trends as it is so versatile and easy to wear. The hardest part is choosing - as it is tempting to have all of them ! ❤
