3 Essentials to Keep In Mind While Choosing Ear Studs for Men
May 20, 2021
Indian men are not new to ear piercing. In fact, ear piercings in India bears a more spiritual and therapeutic value. We have ear-piercing ceremonies called ‘Karnavedha’ as part of Hindu customs in some communities. Here children's (both boys and girls) ears are pierced formally as part of a ritual in their third or fifth year. So it is not surprising that we see men from different communities in India sporting a pierced lobe from an early age.
But as it would happen with women's earrings, men's earrings did not become part of mainstream fashion, until recently. So Indian men are often left quite perplexed as to what kind of earwear they should sport in different occasions. Striking a balance between discreet and loud, formal and casual, ear studs for men are a great choice for newbies who are just stepping in to explore this explosive world of men’s ear wear. Studs are basic but can be dialled up and down quite easily. They are also age appropriate and men of many styles can flaunt it with élan. Opt for diamond studs for men in round cut solitaire or princess cut solitaire to keep it all classy and understated. For a dressy dazzle, multiple CZ stone studded ear studs with masculine motif are the best. But all said and done, we have to be cautious about many other things if we have to make an informed decision about buying our next ear studs for men. Let’s learn how!
Face shape & Complexion
Earrings bring a balance to a face. If one wears a round-on-round look, as in a round face with a round ear stud, the roundness of their face will only get exaggerated. To fill up the softer edges of a round face and introduce some angular elements, a square shape will provide an excellent balance.
Follow the below guidelines to pick the most flattering ear stud shape to your face shape -
Like the shape of your face is a determining factor for the shape of your ear stud, your complexion will help you to choose a complementary metal colour.
Men with olive skin tones or darker complexion are apt for pulling off yellow gold earrings as their warm skin tone will accentuate the vibrancy of the gold studs. Men with fair skin tone or paler skin should opt for white gold or silver ear studs. Olive complexioned men can even rock rose gold ear studs, but pale skin tones should stay away from yellow gold ear studs for sure.
Diamond studs for men look immensely sophisticated and sharp when worn with a suit. Celebrities like Usher and Will Smith, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Michael B Jordan carry off this 'bling and you miss' look to add a dash of pizzazz to their red carpet looks. Diamond studs are a beloved piece of jewellery since the 16th century. Who knew a simple combination of metal and diamond could lend the face with an unquestionable glamour without causing any significant distraction from an overall look.
But crank up the bling-o-meter with multiple stone-studded studs for all your desi gatherings like weddings or festive parties. A cluster design like this 4 Square Matrix Ear Stud for Men will add elegance to your ethnic attire and this vintage-inspired Victorian Ear Stud will draw attention to your fabulous fashion styling.
After you have picked the shape, size, and metal for your ear studs, now comes the most important point – the design. And for newcomers, the more flexible the design is, the more you can wear them fuss-free. What separates the sartorial men from the band of boys is a trendy and sophisticated piece of ear stud. From oozing opulence with a gold ear stud dotted with gleaming CZ stones to the understated subtlety of a sterling silver piece, the ear stud should become an expression of a man’s persona. With a versatile ear stud, one will effortlessly cruise from a boardroom to a black-tie event, from a fine dining dinner with their S.O. to an informal family gathering without compromising on style.
