All our hook earrings and pins come with rubber sleeves. These are made to help keep your earrings or pin in place when being worn. The ones used on the earrings can be hidden behind the ear and are especially helpful in preventing loss when we wear turtlenecks, sweaters, jackets and scarves during the colder months. I have replaced the small white ones with larger, easier to handle clear ones.
When you purchase a brooch from us your piece will come with a white rubber sleeve on the pin stem. To wear your pin, remove the rubber sleeve, slide the pin stem into the fabric, slip on the sleeve and close the catch. If the pin should accidentally come open, your pin will stay in place!
