Yeah-ha! Obviously. Just keep these three essentials handy, and you are sorted. For more inspiration, look around. If you want to rock it out like a filthy pirate a la Johnny Depp, add feather suspended danglers or beaded drops. If you like subtle ornaments with bespoke dazzle, put on a solitaire stud like Christiano Ronaldo. To keep it classy, thin silver hoops are a godsend. For a bejeweled and sophisticated look, gemstone studded ear studs are the best ear studs for guys.
Solo, twosome or stack – which is the best way to wear ear studs for men?
Frankly, you are the lord of your own imagination. If your personality can pull it off, load up! Contrary to what was once believed, guys nowadays can go with a single or double piercing on both their ears or multiple piercings on one or both ears. Remember, there are no rules, anymore. Society is fluid and no gender, cultural or sexual connotation is attached with the number of ear studs you choose to sport or which ear you choose to put them on. Only, the occasion should matter. If you are part of a corporate workforce with appropriate business attire, the best studs for men will be classic solitaire ones. You can try out this one in round cut or princess cut on normal office days. And if you like flaunting your edgier persona, this unusual triangle-shaped solitaire will be a great choice. For stacking, remember this simple rule. Go from larger to smaller stones as you climb up the lobe. All these solitaire ear studs come in three sizes - small, medium, and large, so you can pick three sizes of each design. However many ear studs you choose, never forget to wear your confidence wherever you go!
Lobe or Helix – Which ear spot is great to wear ear studs for men?
For beginners, we recommend lobe piercing as it is the safest, heals fast, and gives minimum pain. It is a good spot to gradually get used to wearing ear studs. Lobe is softer and just requires a piercing gun to get the job done. But if you talk about style, helix piercing is so trendy. But it requires sterile needle piercing, so get ready for some drama. It takes time to heal, but man, once you put a stud to the spot, style explodes. You can hoop it, loop it or stud it, and if you choose to stud it, we offer these sleek and stylish Black Stone Ear Studs for Men in 3 shapes (Round, Square & Triangle). Wait till the girls start swooning all over you.
How to buy best ear studs for men?
Studs come in many designs – plain or embellished, metallic, wood, or diamond-studded. At Orionz, we offer solitaire and multiple stone-studded ear studs for men that are smart and distinguished designs to complement a versatile array of attires and occasions. To choose a single diamond stud or solitaire, you have to first pick the colour of the diamond. We presently have both clear stones and black colour stones. Post that, you have to select the diamond shape. In solitaire, we offer round-cut, square-cut, or princess cut and triangle-shaped stones. After you have settled on the cut and color, now you have to delve into the stone-setting. We offer a prong setting that gives maximum exposure to the stone, thereby enhancing its shimmer quantity. It also lends it a classy look. Now the colour of the metal comes into play. All our ear studs for men are available in two finishes – white gold and yellow gold plating. Finally, you have to choose the size of the solitaire. If you want an understated style, go with a smaller stone. If you want to amp up the sparkle, go with the bigger. All our solitaire ear studs for men come in three different sizes with each of their dimensions mentioned in their accompanying picture. This is a great convenience when it comes to online shopping where you can’t touch the product.
Why trendy men prefer to wear black stone ear studs?
Black looks striking when coupled with a contrasting metal colour like white gold plating. The wardrobe clash is at a minimum, and it looks great with everything. It not only gives a suave and polished look to the wearer but also has a hint of edgy charm with a neat dose of badassery.
Screw back or push back – which is the best locking mechanism?
Screw back is definitely the most secure way to fasten your ear stud, but it needs some time to screw it and fix. Push back slides in comfy and is less time-intensive, and because of this, it is more popular. But sliders, over time, might lose their grip. So if you feel that it feels loose, replace it immediately.
Which Men’s Ear Stud designs are in popular demand at Orionz?
Choose a center that does safe ear piercings for men. Read reviews, consult friends who already have done ear piercing, and research plenty before hitting up a piercing parlour. Enquire with them about their sterilization process. You don’t want blood-borne diseases like Hepatitis B and C along with your new piercing, do you? Most of them will have jewellery on them but if you are carrying yours, let them know if that’s okay. The ideal material for piercing jewellery should be surgical steel, 14k gold, or titanium. Check with them if they use single-use needles for piercing or not and make sure that they prepare the needle in front of you to discard any doubt.
