Compliment Your Look And Steal The Focus With The Stylish Studs For Men November 27, 2020 – Posted in: Blog

Earrings are as common for men as for women.  You can rest assured that they will allow you to make a strong fashion statement and finish off the look.  However, it is important to choose a piece of jewelry that reflects your personal style and taste best.

Thinking of getting some trendy ear jewelry for yourself?  We would say, pick an earring that best compliments your face. AuGrav explores the different types of earrings for guys, the ones that showcase cool earring styles for accentuating your look.  Use it wisely and let your earrings rock.


Before getting your ears pierced, you should decide on the place and the way it is going to be done.  If you are planning to wear earrings then you can get them pierced with a usual piercing gun.  However, in case you want to flaunt crawler earrings, then your cartilage should be pierced using a needle.

When considering men’s earrings, you should not overlook such a contributing factor as your age. Of course, we should counteract prejudice regarding age.  However, there may be stages in your life when dangle earrings will look inappropriate.  Though, everything depends on your lifestyle and the way you look.  If you feel that you can pull them off, you are free to choose from all earring types. All the constraints are only in our heads.


When picking earrings, you should make sure that they are a perfect match for your face shape and skin tone.  The thing is not all colors of piercing earrings look equally flattering for specific skin tones.  So, if you have pale or fair skin, then you should opt for silver or white gold earrings, while yellow and rose gold earrings should be avoided. 

For guys with dark skin, gold earrings are a perfect choice, as they look striking against their skin tone. However, a white gold or silver earring will look great too.  Finally, those who have an olive skin tone can consider themselves extremely lucky, as any earring color looks awesome on them.

As for the shape of the face, if you have an oblong one, then turn to round earrings. For square faces, they work great too as well as curved ones.  If your face is round, then square and triangle earrings are your best friend.

  4. Round face – Square earrings



As a rule of thumb, you should stick to the principle: warm to warm, cool to cool.  This means if you have a cool skin tone, then you should go for white gold and silver, whereas with a warm skin tone, yellow gold works best.  To figure out whether you have cool or warm-toned skin, you should inspect your veins on the inner part of the elbow or inner side of the wrist.  Men with a cool skin tone will have blue veins, while warm-skinned guys will notice green undertones in their blood vessels.

Silver and white gold earrings for guys come in all shapes and look equally cool in any ambiance.  As gold earrings have a luxurious air, they should accompany a corresponding outfit. Consider something with a retro and romantic flair.  Though, if you prefer sports style, you can complement your look with gold hoops.  While diamond earrings may look a little gaudy in everyday life, when paired with fancy attire, they give it a finished sophisticated touch.


  • Work out what earrings best suit your skin tone and face shape.
  • Keep them small for everyday wear. Big earrings, if you want to wear them, are best for special events. 
  • Coordinate it to your outfit theme.
  • Match the metal of your earring to other metal accents in your outfit.
  • The number of earrings you wear is up to you. Choose what you’re comfortable with.
  • Take your earrings out, or wear small studs when at the gym or playing sports. 
  • Keep your new piercing clean, and always sterilize your earrings when you change them

Studs are the most basic earring type and it is likely what you’ll receive when you first get pierced.  The defining feature of stud earrings is that they have a straight post which goes through the ear, and a clasp at the back to secure it.  As such, it’s an excellent choice for beginners.  However, just because it’s a basic style, doesn’t mean it’s boring. Studs come in all shapes and sizes and are made of any material from white gold and sterling silver, to surgical plastic and platinum.

Gold earrings appear refined and sophisticated.  They look particularly good with olive and dark skin, as it brings out the warmth and vibrancy.  Opt for a simple, stylish hoop, or pick a bold, gold stud.  While it may be more of an investment upfront, the benefits of gold jewelry include the fact that it doesn’t rust or tarnish, and it is easier to carve intricate, detailed designs.


Diamond earrings are a great way to bring some bling to your style. Simple diamond studs look great with a suit and for special occasions. Stars like Michael B. Jordan and Cristiano Ronaldo wear this look well. However, like any frosting, diamonds can become very extravagant, very quickly.  Therefore, it’s essential to consider the occasion, your overall outfit, and your personal style. Your boss may not appreciate the look, but it will be right at home for a date night at a high-end restaurant.

Men’s hoop earrings are a versatile type of jewelry.  They range from tiny hoops that fit snugly around the ear lobe, to larger designs that make a bold statement.  Hoop earrings for men often conjure a romantic image of pirates and gypsies.  They also have a harder edge, worn by rock stars or other celebrities.  The type of hoop earring that a man wears depends on his own individual style.

 Hoop earrings are available in a variety of sizes.  Larger hoop earrings can be heavier to wear and as such are often available with hollow interiors.  This makes them more comfortable to wear for long periods. Smaller earrings can be more practical as they are less likely to get caught in clothing or machinery.

Tunnels sit firmly in the ‘love or hate’ zone.  These are cylindrical earrings inserted into a piercing for the purpose of stretching the hole.  Not every workplace will appreciate this look… so be warned.

And it takes time and commitment to stretch and go up in gauge size.  Depending on your body, you’ll need to wait 2-6 months between stretches.

Edgier guys will love the look of a taper earring. This style can be either functional or just fashionable.  Tapers are one method of stretching out the earlobe to be able to wear tunnels or plugs. However, you can get faux tapers which look just as good, without actually stretching your ear.  There are a few different styles available. The most common is a conical shape, which looks a bit like a spike.

The next includes curved tapers, such as spirals, circles, and crescents. Finally, you can also get elaborate shapes like anchors, hooks, or birds. Similar to tunnels, tapers are a more extreme look, which won’t be to everyone’s tastes. Consequently, you may need to be conscious of when and where you’re rocking this look to be socially appropriate.

Style-wise, silver and white gold rings for guys come in all shapes and look equally cool in any ambiance.  As gold earrings have a luxurious air, they should accompany a corresponding outfit. Consider something with a retro and romantic flair.  Though, if you prefer sports style, you can complement your look with gold hoops.  While diamond earrings when paired with fancy attire, they give it a finished sophisticated touch.
