HingeAlso referred to as omega or French back, hinge closures feature a post that fits snuggly within an upside-down U. In Greek, the omega symbol resembles this mechanism, thus why you may hear "omega back" used frequently. Latch backSometimes called lever back or euro wire, latch back closures feature a hook shaped wire. Often used for dangling earrings that hang, a latch provides added security to keep the earring locked and looped through the piercing.
