If you have never heard of snap jewelry before you may have some questions. Here are some frequently asked questions about this cool new jewelry style:
What are the snaps used in this type of jewelry?
Snaps are small pieces which are similar to the snap buttons which are used on clothes and just pop open and shut. They have a front piece which is normally decorative and a back piece which is normally used to hold the front piece in place. This can be plain or slightly decorative as well. It is possible to get lots of different styles of front piece and there are lots of different styles of Snaps to suit every occasion. Snaps are also available in different sizes meaning that you can find Snaps for delicate jewelry items and snap for bigger, chunkier jewelry items.
What makes snap jewelry so special?
One of the things that make Snaps so special is that you can change Snap pieces really easily and without needing to use any specialist equipment. Simply use your fingers or a small coin to prize the front piece and the back piece apart. Once the pieces are separated, you can swap another front piece back in into its former place. This means that you can adapt jewelry very easily depending on what occasion it is. For example, if you change your clothes you can also change the snap pieces on your bracelet, earrings or necklace to match the new outfit that you are wearing. This also means that you can completely change the look of the jewelry so that you only have to take one piece with you on holiday instead of a whole range of items. Therefore lots of people like to take snap jewelry away with them when they go travelling.
Are snap pieces expensive?
Like all types of jewelry the cost of snap pieces can depend on what design and material you choose to buy. Some snap pieces are more expensive than others. For example, it is possible to buy snaps which use semi precious gemstones or snap which are made out of precious metals like silver or gold. These types of Snaps cost more than the simplest items. However, it is worth remembering that snap jewelry is great value because it can be used in lots of different ways and changed in and out jewelry items with ease. This means that in effect you have hundreds of pieces of jewelry rather than just one.
Is this type of jewelry safe?
Yes! Although some people worry about getting their fingers caught in the snaps this fear is unfounded. Snaps are just as safe to use as clothes buttons. The sections that press together have been smoothed out so that you won’t catch your fingers between them.
