Leverbacks

Dating back as far as 300 BC, you can find that ancient Greeks were wearing earrings very similar in function to the current day leverback earring design. Historically popular in Europe, leverback earrings, sometimes referred to as earwires, made their grand entrance in the United States in the 1990s when they reached the mainstream jewelry market through major retailers and shopping TV channels such as QVC.

Orogem has offered an assortment of leverback earrings since the 1990s in 14kt. yellow and white gold each one providing you functional style with beautiful design elements. Dangling below each leverback earring is a design embellishment featuring gemstones, pearls, or classic gold beads which freely move and dangle below the ear. Very secure on the ear, leverback earrings "click" in place providing you a secure fit and are made of a curved ear wire which easily slips through your pierced ear. Another great benefit of the leverback earring style is no earring backs to mess with which can get lost or misplaced which makes this earring design easy to wear and convenient to own as part of your very own earring collection.

Browse the collection and you'll see the variety of options Orogem has made available including the Orogem Jose Jay stone leverback earring where the earwire is covered with beautiful stones hiding the hardware and adding elegance unlike prior leverback designs. This was the first time in the jewelry industry the earwire had been decorated with accent stones in such a delicate manner and the invention was acknowledged and recognized by the US Patent Office issuing Orogem with a Notice of Allowance for a Design Patent. The stone leverback is another design concept credited to Jose Jay of Orogem which reached world wide recognition and international distribution.
