Jewelry Clasps

Different Types of Jewelry Clasps

Jewelry clasps do more than just securely connect two ends of a necklace or bracelet, they are a key part to the design of each piece of jewelry. Our jewelry is designed using the following types of jewelry clasps.


Lobster Claw Clasps

Lobster Clasp

Lobster claw clasps are secure clasps which are a popular for necklaces, bracelets and anklets. This type of clasp has a tiny spring in its mechanism. This keeps the arm closed until you push on the lever. These are somewhat easier to open and close by yourself than a spring ring clasp.

Spring Ring Clasps

Spring ring clasps open when you push a little lever which slides along a circular ring backwards. Once the clasp is open, you simply insert the loop attached to the other side of jewelry into the open circle. The larger the loop, the easier it is to work with this clasp. After the loop is inside the circle, release the lever to return it to the closed position. A tiny spring mechanism inside the clasp keeps the spring ring shut until you need to open it again.

Toggle Clasps

Toggle Clasp

Toggle clasps have a circle on one side of the jewelry piece and a a thick bar which resembles a "T" at the other end. This clasp secures the jewelry when the thick bar is slide into the circle.

Magnetic Clasps

Magnet clasps make it easier for people who have trouble with some of the other types of jewelry clasps, like those with arthritis, long fingernails, or other issues causing difficulty with their fine motor skills or limited eyesight, to put their jewelry on and take it off. Magnetic clasps work using magnetic charges. One side of the clasp has a positive charge which attracts and holds the negative charge on the other side of the clasp.

S Hook - S Clasp

S Hook clasp is a very popular types of clasps. They can range from very simple to ornate.

Hook and Eye Clasp

S Hook Clasp

Another popular type of clasp. It is simple by design yet gives a touch of elegance to any necklace or bracelet.
