The most noticed piece of jewelry
Perhaps it's the fact that we do not see them anymore, once we wear them, the reason why we tend to buy more rings, bracelets and necklaces.
However, earrings can add a lot to an outfit, they can add a lot to the style that you want to achieve.
Earrings are the item that you might notice less yourself when wearing them, but are noticed most by the people who watch you, talk to you, interact with you, during the day.

Show me your earring and I tell you who you are
Show my your earring and I tell you who you are. I once heard someone say this, and it made me laugh at the time. But there is some - a tiny bit - truth in that bold phrase.
A woman dressed for business might flash an unusual ring, it may reflect a little bit of her extravagant inner self, it may just be an expression that although she conforms to the accepted business style, she has her individuality and originality intact.
Earrings, being much more -literally even - in people's faces are kept often much more traditional, small, not too long, colorful, dangling and so forth. Simple buttons, a single pearl, small hoops, that's all you'll see. But even if you need to tone things down, there is more choice that actually will be wearable, suitable, modest yet just a little more fun than the earrings as described above.

Today, there are many different styles: one of the strongest is the earcuff or earjacket. There is a huge variety, from the great collections found in custom jewelry, starting from as little as 10 euro's to the high end jewelry versions.
They have become mainstream for the young people, but are still rarely seen worn, when you walk around your hometown, by the more adult public. These earrings are fun and show a slightly daring style.
Easier to wear are the more traditional styles. Gemstones can add a lot of color and brighten up your look. Diamonds do their usual thing of sparkling around. Dangling earrings are always a little more sexy than the button ones.

Things to consider buying earrings:
- Material- suffer allergy? go for rhodiated silver, gold, platinum
- Weight- again, like buying shoes, there are earrings that are like wearing high heels: hugely uncomfortable, highly beautiful. Wear them for a night out, or take them out as soon as you get home.
- Clip- make sure that it's always properly fixed. This item is the most lost piece of jewelry and although the one earring trend is real, usually yours are not created like that. Such a pity to lose one!
- Clean- if you are like me, highly allergic, you might experience always some sort of irritation, cleaning the earring with a little alcohol might help you. I am too lazy, but it's a tip.
