Get to know more about earstuds and earrings!

When it comes to adorning your ears, a wide variety of choices are available! Two of the most popular ones are ear studs and earrings. While some may use these terms interchangeably, there are actually differences between them. Let's get to know more about them in this article!

What are ear studs?

A favoured choice among minimalists, ear studs are fuss-free and consist of a small piece of metal with a decorative piece fixed on it. The decorative pieces can come in various styles and shapes, ranging from exquisite gemstones to shimmering pearls. Some may have more elaborate designs but usually contain elements of minimalism.

Ear studs are designed to sit flush against the earlobe, with nothing dangling or hanging from it, which makes them easy to differentiate from earrings. They are also smaller and easier to wear; some say they remain comfortable even when worn for long periods!

If you happen to be looking for ear studs, why not take a look at the ones we recommend below?

Exuding grace and elegance, the imagery of a golden flower is truly enchanting.

What are earrings?

Earrings come in a wider variety of styles and designs compared to ear studs. Examples of these are hoop earrings, dangle earrings, drop earrings, and chandelier earrings. Similar to stud earrings, they can be made with a variety of different metals and have decorative pieces of various types. However, they tend to be longer and dangle from the earlobe, along with being larger in size.

They can also be more elaborate in design compared to stud earrings. And if you love being in the spotlight, earrings can be suitable for you too! Let us at Merlin drop some recommendations on pieces you might fall in love with!
