One earring trend – could a custom designed earring be the right choice for you?

One earring trend – could a custom designed earring be the right choice for you?

The one earring trend is evolving and getting to be more and more popular as celebrities and models jump into this jewelry fashion trend. The newest style consists of a single well-dressed ear and at times a smaller earring along the same design theme or a colored stone or diamond stud. Edgy and independent, this one lone earring can make any person look better and have more of a visual flair and uniqueness, but can be something that will end up difficult to master. This trend’s appeal is the grandeur that it presents, but whatever specific style of single earring you choose to go for is all up to you to decide.

To pull off this look well is to channel the style so well that you won’t have people looking at you and remarking something about having lost an earring, a scenario that can be all too real if this style is not understood and executed perfectly. The key to this is to choose something unmistakable and unmissable. Plain earrings are not enough for this style, you need to have something that’s more complex, like spindly metal wires and gems with many different colors of choice. If you are fine with it, you may even have a pair of earrings that you can choose to recycle this way by wearing only one of the duo, but if you’re searching for one that’s more special, various retailers are already selling earrings as single pieces. This style can either be the earring alone, or it can be mixed with a very small earring on the other ear that doesn’t draw attention away from the main piece.

In terms of fine jewelry, one is more than enough to make you shine and sparkle. Another potential positive surrounding it, if you buy just a normal pair of earrings to use one for this singular style and want to match with a friend, is that the cost can be split with them.

However, this trend does not really function well with small, dainty earrings. Overly adorning one ear with a detailed sense of earring fashion, whether it be with a trendy ear jacket, a fancy ear cuff, or otherwise, demands you to be bold in your statement of fashion. It will attract attention to the way it is different from the rest of the earrings on other people, it will be different from the standard pair. In this, it is one of the styles that work best when trying to style yourself to stand out from the rest, and shouldn’t be used if you want to blend in with others or fit a certain norm that many others go by. If you’re a fashion leader or trendsetter having a custom designed earring that speaks volumes may be the answer for you. Moses custom designed earrings could be the best decision you make this year for your forward fashion sense.

Ear cuff jewelry is making a comeback, no longer a 90s phenomenon.

Ear cuff jewelry is making a comeback, no longer a 90s phenomenon.

One of the biggest and most exciting current shakeups in the jewelry industry is the way ear wear has changed and been added to over the years, along with the loss of pre-perceived restrictions on it, like only using drops or studs. An increasing number of jewelry designers have been coming up with more ways to adorn your ear with the most creative designs, in this case, the ear cuff. But while they are appealing to the eye, they bring up a few questions that must be answered before looking into purchasing one. If they draw you in, but you’re still hesitating or confused about them, this will answer those questions.

There are many different ear cuff styles, with some hooking over the top of the ear and using its natural curve, some having fastenings on your earlobe that hold it in position with extra security, or could even have additional clips that are hidden from your view when they’re warned to guide the ear cuff into looking a certain way. Others use slide-style clips that allow for fastening it at many different positions, something that works particularly well for smaller cuffs, or will hook into the inside of the ear itself, something that could be noticed by anyone.

The question of whether or not they are comfortable depends on the cuff’s design. They can have specific circumstances, like cuffs with posts and hooks becoming uncomfortable over time only if it’s very heavy, otherwise, it will be far more comfortable. Slides are comfortable but are less secure than ear cuffs that use cliffs and posts. The cuffs that will end up actually being discomforting in general are designs with clips that are far too strong and put too much pressure on the ear, although there are some ways around this issue for designs with the problem.

How many cuffs should you use? There are no rules, we’ve seen fashion models wear up to 5 on one ear in a charm-style manner. If you buy a single cuff, ones that are specifically for one ear will follow the curve of the ear. A great idea is to go ahead and get the two earrings created and keep one for a spare or gift the custom earring to a friend. With fashion sometimes there are no rules. If you’re looking for something truly unique Moses Jewelers can custom design your earring cuff for you for ultimate fashion expressiveness.
