Angel Bax are special earring backs in the shape of angels that will lift up any pair of earrings with posts, regardless of its shape or size. Due to their shape, they're able to lift and secure earrings to your ears more effectively than smaller backs of a round or oval shape. These earring backs come in sterling silver and 18-karat gold-plated varieties. You can get a set of four backs in one shade or a combo pack that contains one silver pair and one gold pair of backs.
The cost of Angel Bax is $24.99 plus $4.99 shipping, for a total price of $29.98.
Before you start using one of your Angel Bax, make sure that each one is facing up (which will put the angel's head at the top of each). If you were to put one of these backs on upside-down, it wouldn't work as nicely.
Next, remove the standard earring back from any earring (that you're already wearing) and replace it with one of your angel-shaped backs, making sure the side with the bumps is facing outward. You'll notice that the earring automatically gets lifted up a little higher due to the addition of the new back. At that point, you can tighten or loosen the back a bit to experiment with how that changes the lifting effect.
After you've made your new earring back as tight or loose as you'd like, you'll be able to wear the earring it's hooked to with comfort. The lifting effect of each back will never cause any pain, and the material used to make each one is hypoallergenic and won't irritate sensitive skin.
Although these uplifting backs are shaped differently from standard earring backs, they're still fairly small—only about a few millimeters larger than a standard pair. Therefore, you won't feel as if they're adding weight to your ears as you wear them. Actually, your ears will probably feel less weighted down than they normally would with earrings added, since these backs will stop your earrings from drooping.
No matter which shade you choose, Angel Bax are covered with an anti-tarnish coating, so they'll always look shiny and new as opposed to rusty and worn-out.
Some earring backs will twist and turn against your ears and then fall off as you move, but these ones will resist turning, making it unlikely that you'll ever lose them. If you've got a bad habit of turning your own earring backs when you're bored, which could irritate your ears over time, the nature of these backs will also dissuade you from doing that.
Angel Bax are made in the United States, so that means you'll be able to wear them with the knowledge that certain safety and labor standards have bee followed during the manufacturing process. Plus, you'll know that they're free of certain potentially toxic substances that are illegal in America.
With each set of four angel-shaped backs, you'll receive a pouch to carry them in, which will make it even more difficult for you to lose them. The pouch will come in especially handy if you want to carry your earring backs while you're away from home, but don't want to keep them loose in a pocket or purse.
It's unlikely that people will be looking at the backs of your earrings, but if they do, they'll likely notice that your Angel Bax match your earrings. Most earrings contain some gold or silver, and those are the shades that these backs come in, so they'll match the vast majority of earrings well.
Those people who often wear heavy dangling or hoop earrings may notice that their earring holes get stretched out and lose their tight, round shape over time. Fortunately, this will happen less quickly (if at all) after you start using Angel Bax, as these backs will be able to lift even the heaviest pair of earrings up closer to your holes. With the original shape of your holes preserved, you won't have to let them grow over and get them re-pierced, which may be necessary for some people with super-stretched holes.
It's a fact of life that people with drooping ears may appear to be older than others, even if the drooping isn't due to age. It follows then that Angel Bax promote a younger look, as they'll stop your earrings—and your ears, along with them—from drooping. Consequently, if you're young, you won't be thought of as old before your time, and if you do happen to be old, people may underestimate your age due to the perkiness of your ears.
Clip-on earrings can drag your ears down towards your shoulders, too, sometimes even more than earrings for pierced ears, so it's unfortunate that these backs won't work with clip-on earrings. If you don't have pierced ears and wear heavy clip-on earrings instead, you'll need to come up with some other strategy for preventing droopiness.
Men who wear earrings may find the functional benefits of Angel Bax attractive, but some might forgo wearing them due to their angel shape, which is a shape that's traditionally thought of as feminine. It would be helpful if these earring backs could come in a similar but traditionally more masculine shape, in order to appeal to more men and boys.
If you happen to lose one of your Angel Bax somewhere along the way, that doesn't mean that the one that normally goes with it will have to be retired. You can simply grab one from your other set of two, even if it's a different shade. In fact, some people might think it looks cool and unique to wear one sterling silver earring back and one 18-karat gold-plated one.
The anti-tarnish coating on these earring backs will protect them from losing their luster in most situations, but it may not fully protect them from a strong chemical such as chlorine. That being said, it may be best to remove them completely before entering a chlorinated pool and replace them with standard earring backs until you're done in there.
These earring backs will never cause your ears pain unless you have an infection, but with any set of backs, it's best to give your ears a break. Each day, an ideal thing to do is remove the backs for a few minutes before you go to bed, even if you wear them quite loosely during the day. To fully expose your ears to the open air, it would actually be ideal to remove your earrings completely for a few minutes at that time.
