Question, putting a post onto a silver clip earring?

Just wondering, has anyone taken clip sterling silver earrings to a jeweler and had a post added to convert them to pierced?

Is it easy enough to have done?

Thank you! Smiley Happy

You would have to find a jeweler who works with silver.  Call around to independent jewelers to see if any work with silver.  Avoid the chain store jewelers.

 

I have a local jeweler who puts studs on leverbacks for me.  I do not care for post and fishhook earrings but love leverbacks.  I buy inexpensive 14k leverback earrings and save them for when I want studs or a dangle put on them.  The cost is more than reasonable.

I have purchased posts that can. E glued onto SOME earrings, if the back of the earring is flat and large enough. 

They may be available online you might try Google.

I have seen it done.  Some styles are easier to convert than others.

@Grnidkjun:  If your jeweler works with silver it is easily done.  I had some of my Mothers screwball earrings converted.

I have done it with inexpensive earrings using a jewelry glue(craft dept) & posts from craft stores. For expensive jewelry, I would definitely take to a jeweler.
