    The Double Locking Earring Back

    Chrysmela is the only high-tech lock-and-unlock earring back in the world. Patented in 5 countries, the US, UK, France, Italy and Japan, Chrysmela is packed with high precision technology found in smart phones and fine watches.

    Three micro ball bearings are spring-activated inside the tiny device, and generate super strong holding power to lock earrings securely.

    Chrysmela is so strong that it can suspend an object over 17 pounds! But we haven’t seen anyone wearing an earring that big, have you?



    Chrysmela’s patented technology grips your earrings securely, protects them from falling off and gives you peace of mind.


    Chrysmela’s internal mechanism is made of surgical stainless steel. Our luxurious coatings in platinum and gold do not contain nickel, a known cause of allergy.


    Chrysmela fits straight posts between 0.6-1.1mm, most earrings on the market today.

    Does it work with screw posts?

    Screw Backs

    In general, Chrysmela works on screw posts. But the threads on the posts may make it difficult to insert Chrysmela, and also may become less rigid and deep over time with the friction against Chrysmela’s precision internal mechanism.


    If you find it not an issue, then you would enjoy Chrysmela. In fact, many of our customers have happily upgraded their screw backs to Chrysmela.

    What is Chrysmela Extra?

    Difference from Chrysmela Catch

    Chrysmela Catch and Chrysmela Extra are the identical earring backs. The only difference is the removable disc which is included in Chrysmela Extra for lift and support.


    We introduced Chrysmela Extra for customers who are used to using a disc type earring back. Chrysmela is strong and secure enough alone to hold even your heaviest statement earrings. But some delicate earlobes may benefit from the extra support of Chrysmela Extra.

    How secure is it?

    Our Patented Double Locking Technology

    Chrysmela holds your earring securely at 2 points: First, wherever, however you are comfortable to gently “sandwich” your earlobe between your diamond and Chrysmela. While invisible, 3 micro ball bearings are working hard to hold tight onto the earring posts. So it may seem “normal” or “nothing special”, they are very secure. Secondly, if or when your earring gets caught with your hair or sweater and moves, Chrysmela firmly grips onto the little notch at the end of your earring post - this works like a safety net. Chrysmela stay locked until you unlock it.

    My Chrysmela moves. Is it ok?

    Slight mobility is normal, and still secure.

    Chrysmela’s secure design inherently makes it move slightly, depending on the material and size of your earring posts. More importantly, for your comfort. It is still secure, not broken. Earring posts sometimes vary in size, even for the same pair of earrings. So you may see one of the pair does not move, but the other moves slightly.

    One of the pair seems to have less locking power than before. Why?

    How to Clean Chrysmela

    Just like eyeglasses or jewelry, Chrysmela needs cleaning periodically. Hair conditioners, sunscreen and natural skin oil may accumulate inside and may compromise Chrysmela’s strong hold. Please try the following method. We recommend to clean Chrysmela every 4-6 weeks, or more often during the summer months.


    *** How to Care for Chrysmela***

    1. Soak

    Soak in lukewarm water with a drop of mild soap for a few minutes. Use an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner for even better results.

    2. Clean Inside

    Use a small size soft interdental brush (0.6 to 1mm: 0.8mm is best). You can find one online or at local drugstores.

    1) Insert the brush just like an earring post.

    2) Unlock Chrysmela, and pull the brush gently. Rinse and repeat 2-3 times.




    I cannot remove Chrysmela!

    How to Unlock

    Your Chrysmela refuses to come out of the box, or off your earring? Chrysmela locks onto a post so securely that it needs to be “unlocked” before being pulled out of the box, or removed from the earring.


    As shown in the picture here, slide the tip of your fingernail under the very top plate of Chrysmela, unlock it, and then pull it away. Also, please watch the helpful video on this website. You can find the video by going all the way to the top of this website. Then click the "UNLOCK" button.

    Can children use Chrysmela?

    Mothers would know the best.​

    Due to our high-tech precision technology, in general, we’d recommend Chrysmela to anyone who understands the locking-and-unlocking mechanism. But you'd know the best.


    While Chrysmela is hypoallergenic, some earrings posts and base are not. That may trigger irritation, causing some small children constantly pull on their earrings. Chrysmela itself will not render earrings or posts hypoallergenic.
