Different types of earrings

Earrings not only enhance your outfit but they also fashionably express your personality.  It is believed that earrings are essential to anyone’s wardrobe.

There are many different styles, fittings, and designs for earrings. This article aims at exploring the different types of earrings.

Stud earrings

Stud earrings are popular since they are simple and yet stylish. These earrings normally float on the earlobe without a visible connection point from the front view.

A stud earring is a gemstone or any other ornament mounted on a narrow post that passes through the piercing on the earlobe, and a removable clutch secures it on the backside of the ear.

Stud earrings are classy, easy to wear, and never get out of style; hence they are a must-have. They are also suitable for both formal and casual occasions.

Hoop earrings

Hoop earrings are a hot trend. Traditionally, they are mostly found in circular designs, but as they have become more popular, you can now fund them in different shapes like triangles and squares. Hoop earrings are made of a metal tubing with a thin wire attachment, which enables one to penetrate it through the ear piercing. The tubing is attached to the wire permanently at the front of the earlobe, and while penetrating it to the piercing, it slips to the tube in the back.

Dangle earrings

They are designed to flow from the bottoms of the earlobes and are found in different lengths depending on a person’s preferences. They could vary from a centimeter to your shoulders.

Dangle earrings are attached to the ear using thin wires which penetrate through the ear piercing and connect themselves using a small hook at the back. Different from this is the French hook design, which hangs from the earlobe without closure.

They are ideal accessories that could transform your look and display your femininity. They are always the best choice for official occasions.

Clip earrings

Clip earrings are perfect when one has sensitive ears or does not want to have them pierced. They allow you to still complete and enhance your outfit despite having sensible ears.

Cuff earrings

Cuff earrings have a unique design and are amongst the coolest design for women. These earrings cover from the top outer curve of the ear to the earlobe.

Cuff earrings are available in different styles, shapes, and sizes and are not only suitable for formal occasions but also casual events.

Chandelier earrings

Chandelier earrings, just like their name, are shaped like a chandelier. They contain multiple levels of decorations and attach them to the ear at the earlobe to the dropdown.

In some cases, chandelier earrings might dangle or have a teardrop shape with multiple pieces hanging from the piece.

Huggies earrings

Huggies earrings vary from hoop earring in that they loop down and round in that, and they hug the ear hence leaving no or little space underneath the earlobe.

Huggies earrings are thicker than hoop earrings and have a clip that connects one end to the other.

Teardrop earrings

Teardrop earrings are similar to drop earrings though they do look like a teardrop. They normally penetrate through the earlobe and drop down slightly, then attach it to a teardrop-shaped stone or any other decorative ornament.
