3 Qualities to Look for in a Pair of Earrings, Gibsonville, North Carolina

Earrings come in nearly every shape and size imaginable, which makes them the perfect accessory for every occasion. Because there are so many styles, it can be difficult to find the pair that suits you best. Wade’s Jewelers in Gibsonville, NC, carries a wide selection of fine jewelry, including elegant earrings, so you’re sure to find what you’re looking for. These tips will help you find a beautiful set, whether you’re shopping for yourself or a loved one.


earrings Gibsonville NCEarrings come in five main categories: studs, hoops, halos, drop or dangle, and chandelier. While they are all beautiful, not every style is right for every occasion. For example, chandelier earrings—which are extravagant, multi-layered designs named after the light fixture they resemble—are too heavy and ornate for everyday wear. Studs and halos are ideal for daily use because they are lightweight and fit close to the ear.

Each style flatters a variety of face shapes. Stud and halo earrings are considered universally flattering, while drop earrings help balance rounder faces and soften angular ones. Hoops are the perfect way to soften a square face.


The metal backing determines both the color and durability of the earring. White gold is one of the most commonly used metals because it is sturdy yet lightweight and its neutral color pairs well with most gemstones. Yellow and rose gold are as durable and light as white gold, but because their colors are bolder, you might not like how they look with certain gemstones. Before buying new earrings, make sure you aren’t allergic to the metal to avoid irritation and swelling. Platinum is hypoallergenic, so it is a safe choice, but it may be too heavy to wear every day.


Earrings should match your skin tone as well as your wardrobe to create a more appealing look. Light-colored metals like silver, platinum, and white gold flatter cool skin tones, especially when paired with red, blue, or green stones. Warmer skin tones glow next to yellow and rose gold and gems that are off-white, teal, or yellow. White stones like diamonds are neutral, so they go with everything. To find out whether you have a warm or cool skin tone, check your wrists: Warmer skin will show green veins, while cooler skin makes veins look blue. 

Finding the perfect pair of earrings is the final step to creating an outfit that makes you feel confident.
