Try to keep in sync the color of the studs in your earrings with that of your skin and eyes. You may also get the color to match with your outfit or to contrast it.
Do not wear an earring that draws all attention away from your face or outfit. After all, it’s you who deserves all compliment!!!
An elaborate or highly embellished one may come to your rescue in case you are wearing no necklaces. This way you may divert all attention away from your neck. Try to wear a delicate pair of earring with the most elaborate of your necklaces and more elaborate one with a delicate necklace.

Danglers, dangling hoops, chandeliers may all look good on a taller body frame. Women who are slightly tall can go for trendy stud earrings and dangling hoops.
The right shape, design and size of the earrings can help you to emphasize the stand-out features. These features can be may the perfectly structured cheekbones, hairstyles, deep set eyes or even a smile. Face types that are too round or too full can consider rectangular or oval shapes of earrings to be good choices. Round button earrings can be very appealing to thin face. The perfect highlight of the cheekbones and nose can be achieved by large round hoops.
Remember, the ideal length for any earring is the one that leaves some space between the earring and the shoulders. Let not the two meet!!
Keep in mind the size of your ears. A earring more in width must be for the ear lobes that are able to accommodate them.A short woman would be enveloped with long elaborate chandeliers.
Wear light weight yet trendy designs for daily wear. Remember, the heavier ones may rip your earlobes.
Wear silver sterling silvers or 14 carat gold ornaments if in case you have a sensitive skin that is allergic to other metals like nickle etc.
