Here is my random tid-bit on earrings....
Finding the right pair of earrings can frame your face while adding just the right touch to any outfit. While there are a lot of unique earrings to choose from these days; from everyday wear to evenings out, it's good to know how to select jewelry that adds both sparkle and style to your ears.

Manufactured Earrings Vs. Handmade Earrings
Although I do own a pair or two manufactured earrings, that I really do love, this is still a 'no brainer' to me. Here is what it comes down to. Manufactured earrings are just that, they are mass produced and manufactured by machine in most cases. Plus, your odds of finding other ladies wearing the same pair you are is highly likely. Now, where is the fun is that?
If you'd rather not bump into someone wearing the exact same pair of earrings as you are, opt for a set of unique earrings that are handmade with LOVE. Many of these handmade earrings are crafted using quality materials such as natural gemstones, crystals and other findings. These unique earrings can take your look from simple to sophisticated and are also the perfect gift idea for any occasion or as gifts for friends and family.
Post Earrings, Dangle Earrings, Hoop Earrings....Oh, My!
I'm not going to lye here, I buy whatever earrings I like regardless of the style or what is supposed to look best on me. I have pretty little post earrings, dainty dangly earrings, hoop earrings, tear drop earrings...in all shapes, sizes and colors. The only style I can think of that I don't own are those thread type earrings and that is simply because I just don't understand them.

There are tons of articles and blogs out there that you can read to find what style looks best for you face or skin color. None of which I personally agree with, but that's probably because I am in denial about it. I just want to buy what I like. However, I do have a few tips to share that I found to be true to me.

- When selecting earrings, remember that they should set off the shape of your face.
- Studs such as simple post earrings or pearls are great for longer face shapes.
- Long dangle earrings (my personal favorite) look best on round faces.
- If you have a square jaw, circle and hoop earrings work best.
- Tear-drop earrings are perfect for women with heart-shaped faces.
