My mom lost the back post to one of her earrings-I believe they are a screw-back post (is that the correct term?) Where is the best place to find and buy a replacement or replacement pair?

Your local jeweler will probably have them.

You didn't mention whether it is a nice pair of earrings (gold/diamonds) or a fashion pair.

For earrings that are not terribly expensive, I have had great luck finding backs online by doing a google search. There are a lot of companies that supply products for people that make and sell jewelry. For example, those clear plastic "stops" that you can put on the back of fishhook earrings. I bought a pack at Claire's once and got maybe 20. For the same price at a online supplier I was able to get 150.

Nordstroms find jewlerty sells backs but I'm not sure if they sell the screw backs. You might want to call and ask. They are reasonable priced
