Different Types of Earrings


Everybody loves a beautiful pair of earrings. From the subtle and understated to the eye-catching, they are an important part of any outfit. Whether you’re attending the most lavish events or simply heading out with friends, the right choice of earrings can make any outfit look amazing. But what types are actually out there? Read on to find out the most popular types of earrings for all occasions.

Gold earrings

Gold jewellery has been popular for as long as any of us can remember. A much sought-after metal, gold forms the basis of so many of the world’s wonderful pieces. Earrings are no exception, and they come in all shapes and sizes. From simple studs to drop stud earrings on a chain, everything looks great in gold. Best of all, depending on your preference you can choose white gold, yellow gold or rose gold.

Coloured stones

Many people have favourite colours, and often this influences their jewellery choices. Coloured stone earrings are popular because they can be matched specifically to other outfits. For example, if you look great in a blue dress, pair it with some Ceylon sapphire earrings. The best thing about coloured stones is the choices are practically limitless.

Diamond earrings

Who doesn’t love diamonds? When we think about luxurious jewellery, diamonds are usually the first stones that come to mind. Diamond earrings are extremely versatile, and that’s one of the reasons they’re so popular. They pair well with almost any outfit, so if you love diamonds, why not wear them in your ears too?

When purchasing any diamond products, always remember the 4 C’s – Cut, Colour, Clarity and Carat.

Pearl earrings

An extremely enduring style, pearl has never gone out of fashion. They may look basic, but they make a gorgeous addition to any collection. While they may not be quite as luxurious as a sparkling diamond, pearls serve a similar purpose in their versatility. In fact, if you love pearls and diamonds, you can even find pieces that include both. Beautiful pearls and sparkling diamonds – you can’t lose!

Something custom

Whether you have vintage earrings you want replicated, or you’ve got ideas for something brand-new, custom jewellery is the way to go. You can speak to a master jeweller and come up with any sorts of designs imaginable. This is a great option if you’ve got something personal in mind. It can also be helpful to discuss custom jewellery if you’re not exactly sure what you want. The jeweller is always there to help with ideas and give you options.
