Some of the Popular Earring Types
Below are a few examples of popular earring types. The below types are general, and applicable to gold, gem, diamond and traditional earrings. However, it is good to mention here that not all of the below types can be traditional earring types.
Stud earrings are the classical style of earrings that covers the earlobe, and these are the only type that does not dangle down. They usually have one stone, most of the time a diamond. This type is not popular in Emirati Traditional earrings.
Hoop Earrings’ original shape is a circle with a wire penetrating the ear and connecting to the other part in the back of the ear to close the circle. They have grown in popularity in recent years, and as a result, they are available in different sizes, shapes and styles. You may find square or triangle-shaped hoops. Traditional Hoop earrings are usually of the bigger size and studded with stones.
Clip-on Earrings are worn without penetrating the ear. So you can wear them without the need to pierce your ear. They have two clips on the two sides of the earring that closes them. These are worn on the earlobe, and they depend on the mechanic's pressure to hold them in place. This type is not popular in Emirati traditional earrings.
Drop earrings are similar to stud earrings except that they go down and don’t just rest on the earlobe or float. There are many styles of drop earrings, and the most popular one is the teardrop which comes down with the shape of teardrops. This shape is popular in traditional earring designs. They come in various sizes and styles.
Chandelier Earrings, as their name suggests, have a shape similar to a chandelier. Sometimes they dangle and come in different styles and lengths. This type is also one of the most popular earring types of Emirati traditional earrings.
At our traditional earring collection, we have an amazing collection of chandelier earrings that come in different designs. Some are coloured with enamel gold.
Huggie Earrings are a type of hoop but thicker and smaller. They resemble the rings worn on fingers, and they circle around the earlobe with a wire or a clip that closes the circle and holds them tight on the earlobe.
Some of the traditional earring designs can resemble a similar style.
Threader Earrings are earrings that have a string that goes through the earlobe. Sometimes they may be studded with stones.
This type is also very popular in traditional earrings, and it gives an amazing look.
Cluster Earrings are earrings that have a cluster of gemstones. They sometimes come in the shape of stud earrings, or they may dangle down.
In traditional earrings, gemstones are not that popular, except for pearls. However, in our online collection, we have added gemstones to the traditional earrings to get a fashionable style in authentic design.
Earrings are interesting pieces of jewellery that never goes out of fashion and suit all tastes.
How to choose the perfect earring type for you?
When you decide to buy gold earrings, you need to keep in mind certain factors so that you will choose what suits you the best. We have summarized below what we believe are the main factors to keep in mind while shopping for earrings.
- Check Your Face Shape
The shape of your face affects the pair of earrings that match you well. You may wear different types, but when you choose the most appropriate type that goes well with your face shape you will get a better look.
You should use a pair of earrings that make your face flaws look smaller and focus on your beauty. For example, the square face shape goes well with circular shape earrings such as hoops, Huggies or any rounded earrings. Whereas, oval face shapes fit almost all earrings’ types and shapes.
What are the face shapes? And how to determine your face shape.
The face shapes are as below;
An oval face shape is a round shape but longer.
A square face shape resembles a square figure.
The face will resemble a heart shape when the forehead is wider than the chin.
A round face is a circle face shape where there are no clear edges or angles.
A triangle face is clear when the forehead is wider than the chin and sharper angles are clear, especially in the cheeks and chin.
As their name suggests, each face shape describes how your face shape is. In order to know your face shape, you can stand in front of a mirror and draw your face borders with lipstick. Then the shape that will result is your face shape.
- Your Hair cut/Style
The haircut or style is crucial to the overall look. If you pull your hair up, stud earrings, Huggies and even hoops may look marvellous on you.
- The Occasion
Wearing earrings for a Saturday get-together with your friends is different from wearing earrings to attend a wedding. The occasion determines the style and design of the earrings that you need to wear.
A small pair of plain hoops may be a perfect choice for hanging out with friends, while a lavish pair of chandelier earrings will suit better at parties and weddings.
Simple small stud earrings are usually the perfect choice for an everyday look.
- The Outfit
Casual outfits require casual earrings, whereas formal work attire will need formal earrings such as elegant drop earrings.
- Your Style
When it comes to fashion and jewellery, your style should always be dominant. Never lose your own personality and preferences to current trends.
You need to pick your earrings according to your likes and it should match your clothes as well.
If you have a bob haircut, where one side is longer than the other side, one threader earring or a large hoop may look perfect here.
