What Are the Most Popular Types of Bridal Earrings?

There are various styles of bridal earrings that you can choose from, but some are more befitting for weddings than for other occasions.

The Classic Stud Earrings

As we all know, the studs have reigned supreme when it comes to the diamond jewelry game. These trinkets feature a gemstone in the middle and fit the earlobe snuggly without any dangling. Since they do not hang down, many people find them highly comfortable to wear, even during weddings. If you are someone who has planned a wedding with the minimalist trend in mind, then diamond stud earrings will bring out the elegance and simplicity of your gown.

Dynamic Drop Earring

Drop earrings are another type of bridal jewelry that most women reach out for. They hang past the earlobe but stay stationary when worn. Diamond drop earrings are set in unique and interesting designs that showcase the beauty of the gemstone. This type of bridal jewelry has an elegant look to it and can be customized in any way the bride wants.

Swaying Dangle Earrings

While dangle earrings also hang down past the earlobe, they are usually longer than drop earrings. The extra oomph comes from their feature of being more flashy yet slender and sleek, with swaying movement.

Circular Serenity of Hoop Earrings

Hoop earrings are looked at as another classic and traditional earpiece that many brides-to-be prefer to add to their bridal jewelry arsenal. Their infinite loop shape comes in a wide variety of sizes and designs. With the radiance of diamonds, hoop earrings shine the brightest and make you stand out as you are supposed to on your wedding day.

Snug Huggie Earrings

Huggies are the mini version of hoop earrings that hug your earlobes snuggly. With these earrings, you get the look of the hoops with the wearability of studs. Diamond huggie earrings are now highly popular among those brides who want the comfort of stud earrings but also the glamor of hoops.

Our jewel experts say that these earrings make a lasting impact on the overall look of the bride. Their simplicity and sparkle do not take away from the inner beauty of the bride. 

Now that we know the different types of earrings that are fit for a bride, let’s get to the styling tips that we promised you earlier.

Juicy Tips for Selecting the Best Wedding Earrings

Our jewelry experts believe that there are no rules to selecting pieces for your wedding, as it all boils down to your personal preference, style, and choice. And if you want to look cohesive and coordinated, it will be crucial to plan the other elements of your outfit smartly.

Tip #1

The other important part of your wedding day outfit will be your hairstyle. Planning out and considering how you will be styling your hair with the veil will be the stepping stone. If you are planning to go for classic updo styles like a sleek top bun, chignon, or even ponytail, this will allow you to wear larger earrings like dangles or drops. Larger earrings are the best if you want to fill the space that gets created by styling your hair in an updo. But if you decide to let your tresses loose, statement studs, huggies, a small pair of hoops, or drop earrings would do best.

Tip #2

If one of the pieces in your special day’s collection is more of a statement piece, then make it the center of attention by adding a simple bridal earring. But if you choose to skip the necklace or wear a simple one, then you can lean into bold styles like larger hoops or higher-carat diamond studs.

Tip #3

If you have decided on a dress already, then you might get to analyze the neckline properly. Trying on different types of earrings to examine how they will lay on your ear will be the best way to align your earrings with the neckline of your dress. For gowns with higher necklines, opt for simple diamond earrings like studs or huggies. And if your special dress has a V-neck or is strapless, then drop earrings should be your go-to.
