Dama Jewelry’s LuxLock Earring Back Takes Blogs by Storm

Rhode Island–based jewelry-component manufacturer Dama Jewelry caused blogs to buzz with the release of its 14k gold earring back, the LuxLock.

Composed of a stainless steel mechanism inside of a 14k gold clutch, the LuxLock firmly grips earrings for added security. It is adaptable to various earring posts ranging in size and design. Moreover, its high-quality gold provides extra weight to help balance the earring on the ear so customers won’t worry about their earrings slipping off.

According to a press release, bloggers are impressed with the LuxLock’s style, quality, and simplicity.

“The LuxLock is a dainty piece with so much luxury and comfort. I just love it,” wrote a blogger from Fashion Stir Fry. “Even better, I know my earrings are well secured while I enjoy my day. You even start to feel it lock as you push in the earrings, and it doesn’t jam the skin of your ears like so many others do.”
