DIFFERENT TYPES OF EARRINGS
A Stud Earring is considered to be an earring that appears to be floating on the earlobe. From the front, there does not appear to be any visible point where it connects to the ear. The construction of a stud earring consists of the decorative element or design and the post, which is the portion that penetrates through the earlobe. The posts remains fixed in the earlobe by a removable friction back or a “clutch”. Fifth Avenue Collection uses a clear plastic disc affixed to the clutch to help stabilize the appearance of the earring. This is achieved by it supporting the back of the earlobe, helping it to remain flat and vertical. A stud earring often will feature a gemstone or other ornamental design mounted on a narrow post (the stud). A solitaire earring, such as a diamond solitaire, is one of the most common form of a stud earring.
A drop earring is one that attaches to the earlobe and features a gemstone or ornament that dangles down from a chain, hoop, or similar object. The length of these ornaments can vary from very short to extravagantly long. Earring like this are also known as droplet earrings, dangle earrings, or pendant earrings. A chandelier earrings, which branch out into elaborate, multi-level pendants, is considered a Drop Earring.
Hoop earrings are a type of earring that are of a circular shape, resembling a ring. This can include a closed circular design with a wire and tube back closure or hinge style posts that snap into a catch. A semi circular style hoop earring is design in which the hoop is an open design. This style of earring features a stud post with disc or clutch backing. Some Hoop earrings with a stud post element can also feature a snap back clip closure, in wherein the backing resembles a clip earring and uses tension to hold the clip against the ear, thus keeping the stud post in the earlobe.
Hoops can vary in design, size and material composition. They can feature set stones, intricate metal design with other decorative elements.
Dangle earrings present a design element in a manner that appears to flow from the bottoms of the earlobes. This style of earring are available in various lengths from a centimeter or two, all the way to brushing the shoulders. Generally they attach direct to the ear by the use of sturdier thin wires that go direct through the earlobe and connect to a hinged curved sleeve. There is also French hook design. A French hook Dangle Earring merely hangs from the earlobe without a back closure, although small plastic stops, or a retainer, are provided with Fifth Avenue Collection’s Dangle Earrings to prevent the hook from slip through the earlobe. A Dangle earring with a stud post are rare.
Statement earrings are earrings with bold, original or unique designs. They are innovative in both construction and the materials that are combined in the design of the earring.
