About Earring Styles

You can wear any style of earrings, so long as they complement your unique features and are coordinated with your other accessories and outfit. You can certainly mix and match with other jewellery items, so long as the look is intentional rather than gaudy. A complete matching set with pendant, earrings, ring, or bracelet can look overdone but a couple of matching items such as earrings and bracelet or ring can look very stylish.

Certain styles can best emphasize your particular features. Long, dangly earrings can elongate a round face and short round earrings can balance a long face with narrow features. Heart face shapes suit long pear drop shapes which complement the narrower jawline. If you have a square or wide face large earrings are an effective option. Long earrings that widen at the bottom and long oval shapes suit almost everyone.

Stud Earrings

These are usually quite small and come in a variety of shapes. They flatter everyone and are ideal for wearing to work. Diamond studs are the most popular type of diamond jewellery. Young or old, whatever the occasion, diamond studs are one of the jewellery essentials you can wear every day. Timeless and understated, they can add a touch of elegance and sparkle to jeans or can be the perfect finishing touch to your favourite little black dress. Pearl studs are equally versatile and add sophistication to any outfit. Gemstone earrings add an eye-catching dash of colour but make sure the gemstone choice suits your complexion and colouring.

Drop or Dangle Earrings

Drop earrings are a fixed style that usually hang just below the earlobe and dangle earrings swing freely below the ear, often on shepherd hook fittings. Both are made in a wide variety of shapes and sizes to suit any look, with styles to suit everyone. Neutral gold or silver options are the most versatile. Long dangly diamond earrings work beautifully with a formal pinned-up hairstyle. They will draw attention to your face and make your neck look long and elegant. Gemstone earrings add an eye-catching dash of colour. They can be understated drops or more flamboyant dangle styles. Make sure the gemstone choice suits your complexion and colouring.

Hoop Earrings

Generally circular in shape, hoop earrings were worn by ancient Greeks, Romans, Asians, and Egyptians. They originated in Mesopotamia and archaeologists have found examples of Sumerian women with hoop earrings as early as around 2500 B.C.E.

Hoop earrings come in a variety of sizes and shapes, including round, oval, triangular, and square.

Small hoops are a safe conservative style for work and also suit casual wear. Huggies are a style of little hoop earrings that ‘hug’ the earlobe. They tend to be thicker than the standard hoop and are hinged so that the curved back of the earring simply clicks into place. Small diamond hoops or huggies will suit both work and more dressed-up occasions.

Large hoop earrings are great for pairing with casual wear and can give a fun, youthful look to a formal occasion.
