Learn About the Different Types of Earrings and Earring Backs

December 1,2022
Whether a simple stud or a dramatic drop, earrings are the quintessential minimalist jewelry – keeping you looking neat without being overdone. From more modern earring styles like hoops and threaders to classic earrings like diamond studs and gold hoops, we've covered the basics of all the different types of earrings and earring backs.

Earring Type:

Stud Earrings

Studs tend to be small and fit snugly at the top of the earlobe without falling, looping back, or climbing up. Studs are usually simple designs that are comfortable to wear and look great with any outfit. Diamond stud earrings are a jewelry box staple and one of the most popular earring styles.

Drop Earrings

If you want earrings that are still simple but with a slightly longer length, delicate drop earrings may be just what you are looking for. Drop earrings hang below the earlobe and are usually fixed, almost like an elongated stud.

Cluster Earrings

Cluster earrings fit close to the earlobe and consist of several gemstones or gemstones in clusters. These decorative earrings can be in the form of studs or have slight drops.

Dangle Earrings

Similar to drop earrings, drop earrings also hang below the earlobe. Drop earrings are often a more intricate design and offer more movement than standard drop earrings.

Hoop Earrings

Hoop earrings are shaped like hoops and hoops and run from the front of the earlobe to the back. While most hoop earrings are round, they can come in different shapes, such as triangles, squares, and ovals, and come in sizes ranging from small to large. Smaller earrings create an understated look, while larger earrings provide a more dramatic effect. For a glamorous look, choose a pair of diamond hoops set inside and out.

Hug Earrings

Huggie earrings fit snugly on the earlobe and fit snugly on the earlobe. These mini hoops are perfect for those who want the look of hoop earrings without hooks or hooks.

Chandelier Earrings

Chandelier earrings are drop earrings shaped like ornate crystal chandeliers. Exuding elegance and femininity, Chandelier earrings are considered the most luxurious of all earring styles.

Threaded Earrings

Threaded earrings take a more modern, minimal style and consist of a thin piece of metal threaded through a piercing and hanging on either side of the earlobe.

Jacket Earrings

Jacket earrings consist of a latch or stone on the front to hold the earring in place, while the main part of the earring sits behind the ear. These unique earrings are designed to hang behind the earlobe for a fun and unique peek-a-boo effect.

Ear Climber

Earrings are one of the newer and more fashionable earring styles. Instead of dangling downwards, these earrings start at the bottom of the ear and climb upwards.

Earring Back Types

Post Backs

Back earrings are the most common type of earring backing and can be used for everything from stud earrings to dangling earrings. There are several different options for post-back earrings, including push-back, screw-back, and snap-back.

Hinge Backs

Back hinge earrings have a hinged post that snaps into a groove on the back of the earring. Also known as saddlebacks or hinged backs, these backs are often used on hoops and hug earrings. Once you hear a click or click from your earring, you'll know it's safe.

Shepherd Hook back

A shepherd's hook is an ear wire that goes through a piercing and hangs on the back of the earlobe. Thanks to its hooked design, this style can be worn without an additional backing to hold the earrings in place.

Lever Back

Lever backs, also known as latch backs, are another type of earring back that is commonly used for dangle and drop earrings. The wire passes through the piercing and snaps to the back of the earring to form a complete hoop. They are a durable and secure backing option for earrings.

Clip-On Backs

Back clip-on earrings are perfect for both the unpierced and pierced. Clip-on backing snaps lightly over the earlobe to hold earrings in place without piercings.
