Diamond earring types

There are countless types of earrings to choose from, all highly distinctive. These are the most popular:

  • Hoop earrings
  • Stud earrings
  • Ear threaders
  • Pendant earrings
  • Ear cuffs

One kind are our diamond stud earrings. These are very small earrings that, when viewed from the front, seem to float on the ear. So you don't see that they go through a hole. They are secured at the back with a screw.
A second type are hoop earrings. As the name suggests, these are large gold earrings that may or may not be set with diamonds. They have a long history, and in recent years have undergone a true revival.

Another earring type are pendants. These are longer earrings that vary in length depending on the selected style. They can also vary in shape. They can be linear but also flamboyant in design. Pendants can be set with diamonds, in a straight line or another design pattern.

Which style of earring compliments your face shape?

Your face shape bears the greatest influence on which type of diamond earrings will suit you best. Opt for earrings that are the 'reverse' of your face shape. Is your face shape more rounded? If so, slightly longer earrings will be perfect for you. Long earrings visually lengthen your face.

An oval-shaped face is at its broadest at the cheekbones and narrows slightly at the chin. To minimise the length, small earrings suit an oval face-shaped woman the best. Our advice? Opt for elegant diamond studs. Or is your face more angular? If so, flamboyant medium to large-sized earrings are ideal in softening your straight lines a little.

Which earrings should I choose if I wear glasses?

If you wear glasses the best earrings to choose are either gold studs with diamonds or other small earrings. Long pendants could perhaps get in the way. Anyway, small earrings are far from boring. Just take a look at these design studs from the Solé Collection.

Which style of earring compliments your hair style?

Women with long hairstyles can wear all manner of diamond earrings. The same applies to those with medium length hair. The notion that women with short hairstyles couldn't wear long earrings abounded for a long time, but nothing could be further from the truth. Rest assured, with a sleek, short hairdo you really can wear longer pendants.

Do though avoid oversized, striking earrings that reach your shoulders. They will upset your facial balance. Do you have grey hair? If so, opt for the vivid, vibrant colour of the blue sapphire.

Which precious metal to choose?

The precious metal you choose for your diamond earrings depends on a number of factors. Personal preference is, of course, one of them. Besides that, your hair colour and the make-up you wear play an important role too.

White gold or platinum earrings


In the past a lot of jewellery was made of platinum. It was only around a century ago that white gold began to be used as an alternative. Taken at face value, these two precious metals have a great deal in common. Yet there are differences between white gold and platinum. Over time white gold loses its white colour slightly, , but it is cheaper. Which is why jewellers apply a delicate rhodium protective layer. If you would like to buy a pair of gold earrings, by all means opt for white gold. Platinum is rarer, trickier to manipulate and as such, is more expensive.

Yellow gold earringsis exceptionally colourfast. Is your skin tone warm? If so, yellow gold earrings are most certainly for you. Women with a cooler skin tone are better off opting for diamond earrings in white gold. One of the greatest advantages of women's earrings in yellow gold is they can be perfectly combined with gold jewellery and jewellery in other precious metals from your collection.

Red gold earrings

Red gold diamond earrings are a popular accessory for women with red hair, but in fact women of all skin and hair types can wear them. Especially that red gold vintage jewellery is popular now. Do you have a penchant for retro? If so, why not go for a pair of red gold earrings with a matching red gold bracelet or necklace.

Which precious metal suits my hair colour?

Red gold suits red hair, but this tint also looks fantastic with blonde hair too. Yellow gold earrings look stunning with brown hair, whilst white gold or platinum earrings are ideal for black or red hair.

Which colour earring best suits my make-up?

White gold or platinum earrings look fabulous with a cool, light eye shadow.
Yellow gold earrings are best combined with a gold or bronze eye shadow. A pair of red gold earrings complement green eyes perfectly as well as copper eye shadow.
