Earrings are a timeless accessory that enhances your look and expresses your style. However, with so many different sizes and styles available, it can be overwhelming to find the perfect pair.

In this guide to different earring sizes, discover all you need to know about choosing the perfect pair for every occasion.

What different types of earrings are there?

When it comes to earrings, size matters. The size of an earring can affect how it looks on you and its overall impact on your outfit. From stud earrings to drop earrings, what is your signature style?

Stud Earrings

Stud earrings are a classic choice that suits any occasion. They sit directly on the earlobe and are known for their simplicity and elegance. They come in different shapes and sizes, typically 3mm to 10mm in diameter. At Abbott Lyon, we love smaller studs as they’re perfect for everyday wear, while larger ones make a bolder statement.

When finding the perfect stud earring style, consider your face shape when choosing stud earring sizes. Opt for smaller studs to maintain proportion if you have a smaller face. Larger studs can balance out your features if you have a larger face.

Hoop Earrings

Hoop earrings are versatile and can add a touch of glamour to any outfit. They come in various sizes and designs, allowing you to customize your look. They range from small and dainty to large and statement-making. Smaller hoops are great for everyday wear, while larger hoops can make a bold fashion statement.

Consider your neck length when choosing hoop earring sizes. Longer necks can handle larger hoops without overwhelming the frame, while smaller hoops can accentuate shorter necks. 

Drop Earrings

Drop earrings are designed to hang below the earlobe and add elegance to any outfit. They come in various lengths and styles. The size can vary from short and subtle to long and dramatic.

Shorter drops are suitable for casual occasions, while more extended drops are perfect for formal events or nights out. Longer drops complement high necklines or strapless dresses, while shorter ones work well with V-neck or scoop-neck tops.
