The main difference between the magnetic and the clip-ons are how they look. Clip-ons are okay for dangly, hoops, or large earrings. However if you want small earrings or studs, you should stick with magnetic earrings because the small clip-ons tend to look either childish or grandmotherly.

A piercing is attached on to your ear and a clip on is a magnetic earring that doesn’t go through your ear like a piercing does

A clip on just clips on to your ear with no hole. A piercing goes through your ear by puncturing a hole in the skin of your ear.
