Ear cuffs are some of the most sought after jewelry pieces right now! If you love the look of a decorated ear without adding an extra piercing or two, ear cuffs are a great way to try out the look.
The ear cuff trend isn't new. It first began with the Kaffa in 2,000 BC. It was designed to hug the curve on the outside edge of the ear. Kaffas were worn in large and dramatic styles because they put little weight on the ear. Ear cuffs continued to be worn throughout the centuries and they're back now more than ever!
Ear cuffs can be seen on high fashion runways, top fashion influencers, and celebrities such as Rihanna. No piercings are required to wear ear cuffs. Therefore, you don't need to worry about infections, pain, or any of the responsibility that comes with taking care of a piercing. The best thing about ear cuffs besides no additional piercings is that they are very versatile and can be paired well with studs, hoops, and drop earrings.
How do you put your ear cuff on?
placing an ear cuff on your ear may seem tricky, but with a little practice, it can become second nature. Begin by standing in front of a mirror and holding the ear cuff parallel to your ear. Slip the ear cuff onto the thinnest part of your ear and then gently slide it up or down to where it feels snug. The ear cuff should feel comfortable. You'll instantly know that it's in the right position when you gently tug on it and it doesn't come off.
To size your ear cuff down, gently pinch the two ends of the cuff with your thumb and forefinger until you reach your desired size. You may also size up the cuff using a pair of pliers to expand the space between the two ends. To prevent scratching of the surface, place a small cloth between the pliers and the cuff.
