Types Of Earrings Every Woman Must Own & How To Style Them

 

Earrings are one of the most versatile and easy-to-wear pieces of jewellery you can own. They can dress up a look without looking like “too much” and 18KT gold earrings are definitely investment pieces that are worth it! 

You do want to make sure that your earring choice reflects who you are and what mood you're in at the time. Here are all the gold designer earrings we have at STAC, and how you can make them fit your style.

1. Hoop Earrings

Gold hoops are a classic style that you can wear with most outfits and they’re also known as Bali earrings. They're versatile, so they'll look good in any setting—casual or formal, day or night which makes them the perfect daily wear gold earrings. Hoops come in different sizes like large hoops that are bold, and huggies that have a more minimal look!

Huggies are small gold hoop earrings that go around the earlobe and don't get in the way of your hairline.

Medium-sized hoops sit right above your earlobe and give your face a more elegant look (think Audrey Hepburn). These go great with a simple t-shirt and jeans outfit and make for stylish daily wear gold earrings.

Large hoops will make you look like a throwback to the '70s when women wore their hair up instead of down and highlight outfits with lower necklines as well as modern street styles.

2. Gold Stud Earrings

Stud earrings, also known as gold tops earrings, are a jewellery box staple. Studs are simple gold earrings that are a great way to accessorize when you want to go minimal, or if your outfit is making a statement! Stud earrings come in different styles and shapes like diamond earrings, ruby studs, simple gold studs, and studs for second piercings!

These small gold earrings also make great investments for those who have multiple piercings, as they are easy to layer and match with bigger, more eye-catching earrings like hoops or danglers.

3. Drop Earrings

If you want an earring with a little bit of length but still a simple design, a delicate drop earring might be just what you need. The drop earring hangs down below the earlobe and is usually stationary, similar to an extended stud earring. These go great with casual and formal outfits since they’re so balanced!

4. Gold Dangling Earrings

Dangle Earrings are one of our most popular styles this year, with our Scattered Pearl Earrings topping the list. They’re usually long, dangle from your ears and add a pop of style to your outfit. Drop earrings are great to wear when your outfit is on the simple side and you’re looking for a statement earring to steal the show.

5. Gold Threader Earrings

Threader earrings are more minimalist in style and consist of a thin metal piece that threads through the piercing and hangs from both sides. These earrings add a modern edge to your look and go great with new, trendy styles! They also pair well with other minimal earrings like studs and huggies.

6. Gold Climber Earrings

Climbers are gold designer earrings that are becoming more popular by the day. The earrings start at the base of the ear and climb upward instead of dangling downward. They’re great for pulling the eyes upward and elongating the face!

HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT GOLD EARRINGS

1. The Occasion

Looking for the right earrings? It’s all about where you’re wearing them! In the case of a fancier affair where you’re looking to be the star of the show, statement styles like Dangling, Climber, Threaders, and Drop earrings will be your go-to.

If you’re just looking for an everyday earring that you don’t need to change frequently, minimal styles like gold hoops and studs will do the trick.

2. Your Outfit

What are you wearing?  Along with planning your earrings for your event, it is also important to plan your earrings with your outfit! 

If you’re sporting heavy patterns, busy colours, or a bold style, be sure to choose an understated earring. 

A simpler outfit calls for something dramatic on the ears to elevate it! A good rule of thumb is to choose one feature of your look to take centre stage, and let the rest be the supporting act.

3. Your Face Shape

A lot of earrings are designed to complement the shape of your face. Try wearing hoops or studs in bold colours or shapes to accentuate features such as a long, narrow face or a square chin and high cheekbones.

If you have rounder cheeks and a less prominent jawline, try studs with smaller details like squares or dots instead of large gemstones—they'll look more balanced with your facial structure!

4. Your Personality Type

Each person has a different personality; some might be outgoing, while others might be more reserved. When choosing an earring style, keep in mind that you are expressing yourself through fashion. Wear an earring that speaks to your personal style, and don’t be afraid to experiment!
