Though several types of closures for earrings are available, earring hooks make an excellent choice for dangling earrings. Easy to put on and take off, these "fish hooks" allow free movement and come in different materials—including gold, sterling silver, and surgical steel—many of them hypoallergenic and nickel-free.

Furthermore, thicker hooks offer a sturdier option, and keep in mind that wire gauge numbers increase with thinness. Earring hooks offer a comfortable and easy-to-wear closure that adds motion to long earrings.
