FAQ - How to style ear cuffs

You may have heard of this jewelry before but what actually is an ear cuff? An ear cuff is a piece of jewelry that is worn around the outer edge of your ear. It simply slips over the cartilage and gives a similar look to that of a helix or snug piercing.
One of the many benefits of an ear cuff is that you DO NOT need a piercing. Some simpler designs even give the illusion of having a conch or helix piercing, as the ear cuff sits where these piercings are located. You will have the freedom to style your ear cuffs, so stack those ear cuffs high!
It's totally up to you which ear your ear cuff is worn on. This could be influenced by a number of variables. You can choose which is more comfortable: piercings or cuffs? It’s entirely up to you!

Putting an ear cuff on for the first time may be a little tricky, however, with enough practice, you'll be an expert in no time!

The first step is to make sure your ear cuff is the right size. You might not be able to get it over your ear if you don't do this. Simply keep the ends together and pull them apart slightly to widen the space.

Pull your ear through and slip the cuff over the thinnest section of the cartilage on the outside of your ear after slightly opening the cuff.

Slide the ear cuff down and rotate towards the inner ear until you have found a position that looks good and feels comfortable.

Finally, attach the ear cuff by pressing the two ends together. When you gently pull on the ear cuff and it does not come away from your ear, you will know this is the situation. If you squeeze the ends together too tightly, it may become uncomfortable.

Depending on the ear cuff you choose, you can definitely wear other earrings, for example, hoops or a piece in the same aesthetic as the ear cuff, to create a row of earrings. You can also opt for something more subtle and discreet, such as studs or ear climbers if you really want to wear additional earrings with it.

For a truly unique styling, play around with more than one ear cuff or combine with other ear piercings. You might want to combine different-sized ear cuffs or place them at different points on your ear. Why not try one towards the top of your ear and another placed lower down?

To remove your ear cuff, simply pull apart the two prongs enough to slide off the ear cuff.
