If I remember correctly, I got my first pair of earrings when I was in kindergarden. It was a pair of hoop earrings.
As I grew into my teens, I began to take fancy to other types of earrings. The school was very strict with the type of earrings we could wear to school. I was wearing stud earrings most of the time. The choice of stud earrings available, weren’t many. Mostly were made of faux diamonds.
I began to take notice of faux pearl stud earrings more. I was only a student getting pocket money from my parents and that was all I could afford. I could find different pearl colours (mainly in white) and different pearl sizes. My favourite was white colour. Champagne colour was also a top choice.
There is something about wearing pearl stud earrings. It gives a tinge of glamour without the glaring bling like the diamond stud earrings. Diamond ring yes. Diamond stud earrings, it’s just not for me.
I am not really an accessories person but to me, earrings are the essential to complete a look. I can do without a necklace, but a pair of earrings is a must for me. With the right pair of earrings, it brightens up my facial area.
I have been wearing a pair of hoop earrings for years, day in day out. Until one day the husband asked if I wanted to get a new pair of earrings. Then I realised I have never got myself a pair of real pearl stud earrings.
I personally think the ideal pearl size should not cover more than 3/4 of your ear loop. Champagne colour is a good choice for the asian skin colour. If you have really fair skin, white pearl is your top choice.
The next time you pass by a jewellery shop, maybe you can shop around, try on a pair of pearl earrings and see if you like it.
