These will fit, but they need a slight adjustment of the butterfly back. The hole is definitely large enough to fit the varying sizes of my post earrings. I used my nails to separate the "butterfly wings", ever so slightly. The tip of a pin will work, too. Usually, the motions of putting the post into the back would ease tension and open the wings slightly, but these are steel and not that pliable. It only takes a couple of seconds to adjust. Once adjusted, they will keep stability at that tension. Let me put it this way; I feel complete confidence using these on my little diamond studs, knowing they will be secure, until I take them off. You won't need to be concerned about loose earrings.

The correct term for these are "tension butterfly backs". It's the tension of the "butterfly wings" that grasp and secure the post of your earrings. The hole itself is not an issue. Ideally, the manufacturer should have eased the tension during production. That is the only reason for my 4 stars.

The backs are made of heavy duty steel...very sturdy. They're medium sized diameter...about 4mm. All 100 are the same diameter. The price is great!

I purchased these to replaced some sterling silver tension backs, I previously bought. They were flimsy and very lightweight. Over time, the tension started lessening on their own, and no longer fitted my earrings securely. When I attempted to tighten the butterfly wings, the metal crushed. You will not have worry about these steel backs losing their tension or the metal crushing while adjusting....or losing your earrings while sleeping or showering! The construction of these is excellent. Little things have a tendency to get lost, but if you keep up with them, these backs will last for years. They are very durable. Most people have no allergic reactions to the surgical steel.

These shipped quickly and seem to be heavy duty and sturdy. I didn't have any problems with them fitting on my existing earrings. The problem I had is that they irritated my ears. I have 3 piercings in each ear, and used these new back on just one set of earrings. My other piercings were fine, but the piercings with these backs were extremely irritated. Maybe I misunderstood what "surgical steel" means. I assumed it would be good for sensitive ears.

If you do NOT have sensitive ears - I would absolutely recommend these. However, if your ears are finicky like mine, I would stay away.

These are horrible! It says surgical steel but they must be lying because as soon as I wore these my ears broke out! My only skin allergy is to nickel(which surgical steel doesn't contain)and therefore this product is either mislabeled or the seller is flat out lying. The earring backs do their purpose, however, if you are looking for surgical steel earring backs because of an allergy, these ARE NOT for you.

I have three holes in each ear and quite an assortment of stud earrings. Obviously, with so many pairs, I have lost quite a few earring backs and have had to rotate.

Finding these and seeing the cheap cheap price seemed perfect.. except that the earring backs don't fit on ANY of my earrings comfortably. I can force them on to a couple pairs, but 90% of the earring posts don't fit into the holes on these. Note that I wear regular stud earrings, nothing fancy or crazy.

I'm disappointed in these. There isn't enough information on the product page to know whether or not these will work for you. The only up side is the price.. at less than $2.50 I don't feel totally cheated.

I purchased this item along with several others from 3 different companies on the same morning. All of the other items were received in a timely fashion and in good order. I never received the earring backs; not a large purchase to be sure, but I did need them. I contacted Amazon; received an email from Uncommon Artistry, and responded with the order info. After another month went by, I emailed them again and received a rather rude response. I forwarded my original reply and again asked them to ship the order. A few days later, Amazon refunded the purchase price and the shipping. I didn't want a refund, just the merchandise ordered! No further response from Uncommon Artistry leaves me to think that my business is just not wanted.

i did not have any problems with it being too tight, they fit my earrings perfectly. and now i have to find some use for the 98 other backs haha. I guess its better if you split this purchase with some of your friends because honestly you won't need that many.

These backs would not fit on any earring that I owned The holes are so small that they simply don't fit. I even tried them on some pairs of earrings made for children and they still will not fit. I had to throw them all away. Waste of money. At least I didn't pay alot for them.

The manufacturing quality of these earring backs is not quite good enough for me to give 5 stars. There are a couple of issues:
1. The groove that holds the post of the earring on a few of the backs is defective and doesn't grip the post strait, or the grip is too weak and the post slides off with hardly any pull pressure. Those backs are junk, there's no way to fix them so they go into the trash. If there are 4 or 5 of these that are no good, that's still 95 that are good, and for this $1.55 cheap price, I won't complain if a couple are defective. I probably won't live long enough to ever use up even half of them, just wanted a few on hand as spares.
2. The hole is not punched through fully on a few of the backs, requiring a lot of force to push the earring post through. This can be easily fixed by pushing an embroidery needle through the hole to open it up; hold the earring back with a pair of needle nose pliers so you don't accidentally stab yourself.
As for the metal: I tested the product with a strong magnet, and there is no magnetic reaction at all, so these are either genuinely 316L stainless steel, or possibly some cheaper base metal which has been chromium plated to look like stainless steel. If I haven't had an allergic reaction to them in 2 weeks, I'll update this review with a note to that effect.

The overall size is very small, making them somewhat difficult to hold while trying to poke the earring post through them; these are the smallest stud earring backs in my collection. If I had known they were this small, I probably wouldn't have bought them, but for only $1.55, I'm not upset. One strange thing: the little ziploc baggie they came in had two or three other items in it that are not earring backs, but look like solder terminals for electronics boards. Maybe the same factory is making both items, and some of the solder terminals got packaged with earring backs by mistake?
