A true classic, stud earring to be on the smaller side, feature a simple design and fit snugly on top of the ear. There are many designs you could opt for, depending on your preference. Gold, silver or diamond studs are the true classics and tend to be the most popular because they can be worn daily, and work with any look – smart or casual.

Like studs, hoop style earrings are true classics and never date. Generally, this style is shaped like a hoop and loops from the front to the back. Hoop earrings come in an array of sizes from small to large. I think smaller hoops are great for every day, while larger hoops make more of a statement.

Huggie style earrings hug the earlobe, wrapping around it snuggly. Even though most have a hoop shape, they differ from traditional hoops in that they sit close to the earlobe Most have a hinge that allows you to open and close the earring, keeping them in place and ensuring no snagging or catching.

Best described as modern and minimalistic, threader earrings are easily identified by a thin piece of metal that threads through the ear piercing, hanging on both sides of the earlobe. This style tends to be quite delicate too.
