Earrings for menEarrings for men are certainly part of the world of fashion, therefore, we at Trendhim offer a wide variety of styles such a plugs, zirconia stoned, magnetic and clip-on models. We also provide valuable information on how to get started wearing an earring.
First of all, you don’t need to get your ear pierced to experience the look and feel of wearing an earring. Although it is very fashionable for a man to be wearing one or two earrings, you may want to give it a try before having your ear pierced. Therefore, we can recommend that you try out a magnetic or clip-on model. Magnetic earrings are the most discreet because they do not require having a section that goes around the earlobe.
Materials and allergic reactionsAn earring is a piece of jewellery that, when worn, is in constant contact with and even penetrates your skin. Therefore, the quality of the material needs to be perfect. This is why we test all of our earrings to confirm that they pass the EU Nickel Directive of releasing less than 0.5 micrograms of nickel per square centimetre per week for fixed skin contact, and 0.3 for through skin contact. If you are allergic to nickel, we do not recommend steel but suggest that you look at our wood and sterling silver collections.
At Trendhim, our earrings are primarily made of 316L stainless steel and 925 Sterling Silver, both thoroughly tested for nickel content. There are no concerns about the zirconia stone models because they are synthesized and do not contain any nickel whatsoever.
Some models are made of acrylic, which is a form of plastic. These earrings are lightweight and therefore very comfortable to wear.
To help you choose the right size, please refer to the image below this category that shows you proportions of popular stud sizes compared with the size of an ordinary credit card. The most popular earring sizes for men are 6mm and 8mm in diameter.
Types of earrings
Earrings are available in many shapes and designs, so it can be difficult to decide which style suits you best. As usual in fashion wear, it really is a matter of personal taste. So we have compiled some notes on the different models to help you choose:
Stud earrings are currently the most popular earrings for men. These stud earrings come in a multitude of shapes and sizes; they range from a simple pattern to elaborate designs. There are elegant zirconia studs, large round rings, some plain and some with embedded zirconia stones. There are also several designs that will show off your keen sense of humour.
Just scroll down the pictures and you will see what we mean.
These earrings make it look like you have plugs, stretchers or tapers, but in reality they are completely normal earrings. Like with all Trendhim earrings, all of these wonderful fake plugs fit into standard pierced earring holes.
Zircon is a naturally occurring mineral and can be confused with precious stones. Cubic Zirconia stones are synthesized zirconium oxide. Cubic Zirconia is harder than the natural mineral and is usually clear of colour. But because it is manufactured it can easily be coloured into many wonderful shades. Jewellery with zirconia stones is often called bling-bling jewellery. We have a large selection of earrings adorned with zirconia stones.
Hoop earrings describe earrings that are either completely circular or semi-circular in form. They are available in clip-on and pierced stud styles. You can try the clip-on first before taking the big step to actually getting your ear pierced.
