WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING EAR CUFFS

Choose the incorrect pair, and everything looks out of place; pick the right pair, and your ensemble is practically made for you.
THE BUYING GUIDE: WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
1. EAR CUFF MATERIALS
If you are looking for a great pair of plated ear cuffs. Opt for ear cuffs that are either rhodium-plated or have a thick gold plating at least 14k-18k in karat weight. A thick plating will prevent the ear cuff from tarnishing.
Rhodium plating is hypoallergenic and will prevent the ear cuff's color from changing. Plus, it gives the ear cuff a beautiful shine that will last for years.
Likewise, a 14k-18k gold plated ear cuff is a great option for those who want the look of gold but don't want to break the bank. Also, a 14k-18k gold plated ear cuff should last for years with proper care.
2. EAR CUFF COMFORT
When it comes to finding the best ear cuffs, comfort is key. An ear cuff with an adjustable design that is comfortable to wear is important, especially if you're wearing it for long periods. You don't want to adjust or fidget with an uncomfortable ear cuff constantly.
One of the most important factors in choosing a comfortable ear cuff is selecting the correct cuff sizing. The best ear cuffs for you should fit snugly, but not too tightly, on your earlobe. If it's too tight, it will be uncomfortable to wear. A too tight ear cuff can also cause pain and inflammation. If the cuff sizing is too loose, it can fall off easily.
Look for an adjustable ear cuff since the wire easily opens up if it is too tight or closes up if too loose. Be sure to adjust the ear cuff wire to the correct size before wearing it. This will ensure a comfortable, custom fit.
Try a dainty gold ear cuff on for size. Gold rarely ever clashes and always looks pretty against any skin tone. Plus, a dainty gold ear cuff is super light and won't hurt your lobe like some other, heavier earrings might. The material is sturdy enough to withstand everyday wear and tear but won't feel too heavy on your earlobe.
