If you’ve ever lost an earring back, you know the fear, panic and utter rage that come before the sorrowful acceptance that you, as an earring owner, have failed. Just like hair ties and socks, a lost earring back is never to be found again.

So, we begrudgingly master the art of earring back mix-and-matching. And if you’ve lost an earring back while you’re at work or school, bet you’ve gotten creative with erasers and duct tape. If you haven’t, don’t ask.

Swapping earring backs and pulling out the old eraser trick is less than ideal, but this giant box of extra earring backs on Amazon is. It’s actually pretty wild. For $6, you can get a box of 1,080 earring backs of all different shapes, sizes and metals — including some for heavy earrings.

Made of high-grade soft rubber, metal and plastic, the earring backs are durable, comfortable and safe to use. Plus, they come in a super convenient box just in case you lose a few (old habits die hard). The pack has the following earring backs:

  • 60 pieces of 4-millimeter transparent backs
  • 180 pieces of plum flower shapes
  • 100 pieces of four-leaf clover shapes
  • 100 pieces of silver bullet shapes
  • 100 pieces of golden bullet shapes
  • 100 pieces of clear pot shapes
  • 90 pieces of golden butterfly shapes
  • 90 pieces of silver butterfly shapes
  • 30 pieces of silver pot shapes
  • 30 pieces of golden pot shapes

Amazon shoppers say this $6 pack of extra earring backs is a lifesaver. In fact, it boasts 4.7 out of 5 stars based on 3,274 reviews. And we know that Amazon shoppers are honestly more ruthless than a PTA mom at parent-teacher conferences.

While we could list out all of the repetitive reviews from shoppers saying that they have enough earring backs now to last until they die, we’ll leave you with this simple review:

“How did I ever survive without this box?”
