Wearing paper clips dates back to at least World War II, when Norwegians donned them as a symbol of unity.

By the mid-20th century, paper clip motifs could also be found in fine and fashion jewelry. Coco Chanel famously used paperclip shaped accents in a necklace she designed for her eponymous fashion house.

Legend has it that Jackie Kennedy was the first to ever wear Chanel’s iconic paperclip necklace. 

In recent years, whether worn as a bracelet, necklace or earrings, paperclip chain has grown increasingly popular, becoming a standard staple piece of any wardrobe.

The usual suspects include bracelets and necklaces, but these 50mm dangly 14k gold over sterling silver drop earrings, with 5 paperclip links, will shimmer in the light creating a trendy, yet timeless look.


  • 14k gold over solid sterling silver
  • paperclip size 3.4 x 10.8mm
  • total drop length 50mm
  • hypoallergenic
  • nickel & lead free


We at Shorewood Jewelry believe in quality and because every piece is made of solid 925 sterling silver as it’s base metal (including 14k gold over sterling), we can genuinely call it fine jewelry.

Real Sterling (whether plated or not) can be worn for years, without turning the skin a green tinge, such as with brass. As well, unlike brass, sterling silver is hypoallergenic.

Although swimming in the salty ocean or a chlorinated pool is not recommended because the salt can ultimately corrode the silver, you can shower in clean water every day with sterling silver.

That said, although considered a precious metal, one of the biggest things to be mindful of when it comes to sterling silver is that it is composed of a soft metal.

Yes, although it’s precious, sterling is soft!

It is definitely more bendable and pliable than for
instance, stainless steel, which is a hard metal.

So remember to be mindful of 2 things:

1. Be aware of the chain on your neck when quickly pulling a sweater over your head, or it could cause the chain to break!

2. Be aware to be gentle with the post on your stud or hoop earrings. Although the posts can be moved, as sometimes they bend slightly and need to be straightened, remember to do it smoothly and gently, with fingers held firmly on the whole post, as you move it into place.
