Many of us have several pairs of earrings in our jewelry collection and we spend countless hours trying to pick out the right style to match the occasion. Have you ever wondered why certain earring shapes look better on you than others? Sometimes figuring out which style and shape is the most suitable can be challenging. If you’re wondering how to choose the right pair of earrings for every occasion, we’re here to help! We have compiled a list of some of our most stylish dangling earring designs which look amazing and go with everything!
Part of choosing the right pair of earrings is deciding which length of earring to wear. We have shorter styles and longer styles in our collection. Wondering what the different lengths in our collection are called? Here’s a quick reference:
Stud Earrings - Stud earrings do not drop below the earlobe. This earring design is secured onto a post that is then fastened to the ear with another piece on the back of the earlobe.
Dangling Earrings - These pieces hang just below the earlobe with minimal movement when you walk or swing your head.
Extension Earrings – The extension earrings hang below your earlobe, and the length varies with some hanging longer than others. These are our longest styles and, just like the name suggests, they extend the length of the earring. This allows movement during wear and many people enjoy the way they swing back and forth and side to side.
So now that you know the differences in length, let us help you choose the right style of earring for your specific style and face shape. Here are 5 of our favorite styles and our styling tips below.
