What is an ear cuff?
Ear cuffs are earrings that attach securely around the external helix of your ear. Ear cuffs are often sold as single pieces for the left or right ear so you have the liberty to create your own asymmetrical look. Some ear cuffs come in pairs.
Do you need a pierced ear to wear an ear cuff?
The beauty of an ear cuff is that you do not need to have pierced ears. They are the perfect solution for anyone wanting an ear adornment but not keen on piercings, or for those who only have a single piercing but love the multiple earring look.
How does an ear cuff stay on?
Ear cuffs are cleverly crafted earrings with a gap in their design, which allows them to attach securely around the external helix of the ear.
♦ Most cuff earrings are shaped just like small huggie hoops with a small gap in the circular shape.
♦ A variation includes a clip on the back of the cuff, which fastens it onto the ear lobe
♦ Another option is a beautifully designed ear hook that fits snugly over the top of the ear with arms that curve around the helix or ear lobe.

Ear cuffs are available in 9k, 14k, 18k, 22k, rose, white and yellow gold.

Gold is a gleaming precious metal that carries any ear cuff design, simple and unadorned or set with stunning gemstones.
