Good thing you didn’t lose your earring! I would get both backs replaced. Also have the jeweler check the little notch near the ends of your posts to make sure they’re not worn down. You want your backs to catch on that notch.
My post broke at the notch. I had the posts and backings replaced in both earrings..It looks like you just need an inspection and new backings. You were lucky…No pun intended! Haha
Thanks for this bit of advice. I've worn these earrings through some very interesting times so I guess I don't think of the back ever failing.
There's a Jewelry Doctor very close to me so I'll go there. They've done great work on one of my rings so this should be piece of cake for them (that ring was not...lol).
