How to wear earrings for men


The 20th cen­tu­ry turned many ideas about fash­ion, cul­ture and tra­di­tions upside down. The atti­tude of men towards jew­el­ry has also changed. But their sym­bol­ic mean­ing has not dis­ap­peared any­where. We answer pop­u­lar ques­tions about what ear­rings in the ears of men mean, talk about the types of men’s ear­rings and the rules for wear­ing them.

The meaning of earrings in both ears in modern men

Pre­vi­ous­ly, sin­gle pierc­ings in both ears were worn only by women or homo­sex­u­als. Today, male rep­re­sen­ta­tives of cre­ative pro­fes­sions adorn them­selves this way to empha­size their indi­vid­u­al­i­ty, to show that they are far from stereo­types, prej­u­dices and strict stan­dards in cloth­ing and image.

Actor Will Smith and soc­cer play­er David Beck­ham prefers for­mal suits but often wears stud ear­rings. John­ny Depp accen­tu­ates the look with del­i­cate round thin ear­rings.

What does one earring in a man’s left ear mean?

In ancient times, the mean­ing of ear­rings on the left ear of a man, depend­ing on the type of activ­i­ty, was as fol­lows:

  • sailors wore jew­el­ry as a tal­is­man against prob­lems on a long jour­ney;
  • the Cos­sacks put on an ear­ring in the left ear of the only heir;
  • cre­ators (musi­cians, artists, design­ers, etc.) — to stand out from the crowd.

What does an earring in a man’s right ear mean?

An ear­ring in a man’s right ear means that he open­ly declares his ori­en­ta­tion.

This usu­al­ly indi­cates belong­ing to a sex­u­al or reli­gious minor­i­ty. Since the atti­tude towards him in Euro­pean coun­tries is rather neg­a­tive, men are advised to wear ear­rings in both ears or only in the left ear.

Can a teenage boy wear earrings?

If the son sud­den­ly came home with an ear­ring in his ear, do not sound the alarm. Sud­den­ly he decid­ed to become a musi­cian and tries to be like his idol. Bet­ter to ask and find out why.

Varieties of men’s earrings

Men’s jew­el­ry is pro­duced much less than wom­en’s. Studs, rings, onlays, mag­nets, cuffs and clas­sic ear­rings of var­i­ous shapes, as well as with a cross pen­dant, are very pop­u­lar.

The shape and design of jew­el­ry for the stronger sex is dif­fer­ent from wom­en’s — they are more strict and min­i­mal­is­tic. Although some dudes choose extra­or­di­nary options. Singer Garik Sukachev some­times flaunts large gyp­sy ear­rings.

Men are allowed to wear:

  • Hoop ear­rings in both ears pro­vid­ed that they are thin and do not hang over the chin. A round ear­ring in a man’s ear is the choice of rock musi­cians, artists, artists and oth­er cre­ative peo­ple. It is unlike­ly that it will be com­bined with a jack­et or tail­coat, but it will be in har­mo­ny with shab­by jeans, a light scarf and a loose jack­et.
  • Ear­rings with pen­dants can be com­bined and matched to any look or style.
  • Stilet­tos are the safest choice for begin­ners as they are easy to wear and more ver­sa­tile than oth­er styles.
  • Tun­nels are cylin­dri­cal ear­rings that are insert­ed into a punc­ture to stretch the open­ing. Stretch­ing and increas­ing size takes time and effort.
  • The cones usu­al­ly come in a wide vari­ety of col­ors and taper to a spe­cif­ic point.
  • The bars are curved or horse­shoe-shaped.
  • Clip-on ear­rings are a solu­tion for those who are embar­rassed to put an ear­ring in their ear, but want to exper­i­ment with the image, men’s clip-on ear­rings are suit­able. The vari­ety of such prod­ucts is no less than stan­dard ear­rings.
  • Mag­net­ic ear­rings for men are an alter­na­tive to clas­sic jew­el­ry. Out­ward­ly, the design is sim­i­lar to the usu­al ones, but a mag­net is insert­ed at the point of con­tact with the ear.
  • Stud ear­rings in a man’s ear look styl­ish even in an office set­ting. Although Hol­ly­wood actors and musi­cians do not hes­i­tate to wear them even under a jack­et or tail­coat. Men’s studs with black or white dia­monds are also in fash­ion. They empha­size not only the taste of the own­er, but also suc­cess.

With what clasps are earrings made for men?

  • Ear cuff-chain — a spe­cial link with a cuff in the upper part of the ear, con­nect­ed by a chain with a hair­pin at the bot­tom of the ear­lobe.
  • A stick is a spe­cial type of dan­gling ear­rings that uses a chain that is insert­ed through a hole. It can only be used when the punc­ture site is com­plete­ly healed.
  • Back Clip — There is a clip clasp on the ear­lobe that holds the ear­ring in place.
  • A fish­ing hook that is thread­ed through an ear pierc­ing. It is easy to wear and take off.
  • A French clip is a type of fas­ten­er in which an open wire clip is placed over the ear­lobe.
  • The hinged rear latch has a post that attach­es to a met­al lock. Its shape varies depend­ing on the style.
  • A screw is safer than a stick because the back­ing is bolt­ed to the grooved post, but takes longer to put on.
  • Studs are also known as but­ter­fly clasps. The back is but­ter­fly shaped and slides over the rack until it is secured.

How to choose men’s earrings

Before choos­ing jew­el­ry, you need to look at what met­al a per­son wears jew­el­ry.

Gold ear­rings are always a wor­thy gift. But not every man will agree to wear clas­sic gold acces­sories, so it is bet­ter to choose white gold. Sil­ver ear­rings are a mat­ter of taste.

The choice of mate­r­i­al depends not only on taste pref­er­ences or the bud­get for the pur­chase, but also on the pos­si­bil­i­ty of an aller­gic reac­tion in the body.

Despite the fact that med­ical steel is not an expen­sive met­al, jew­el­ry made from this mate­r­i­al does not cause aller­gies, looks mas­cu­line and blends well with the steel of the watch case.

It is important that the earrings match the skin tone:

  • light pink skin. Sil­ver or white gold look great on fair skin. Rose gold should be avoid­ed, as it accen­tu­ates the blush;
  • pale skin with a milky tint. Will have to give up yel­low gold in favor of white or sil­ver;
  • olive skin looks great with met­al jew­el­ry of any shade;
  • dark skin is best paired with yel­low gold, espe­cial­ly bright and dark gem­stones.

Selection of men’s earrings according to the shape of the face

  • Oblong face — round ear­rings.
  • Heart-shaped — straight with­out bends, such as a bar­bell or a cone.
  • Square face — round or curved mod­els.
  • Round face — square and rec­tan­gu­lar ear­rings.

Pearls and col­ored gem­stones are pop­u­lar among women. They are incred­i­bly atten­tion-grab­bing. One or two ear­rings with stones in the ears of a man will look strange. If you like sequins, choose cuf­flinks with stones.

How to style earrings for men

Like all acces­sories, ear­rings should match the look. If you com­pare an out­fit with a cake, then the acces­sories will be the cher­ry or on top. Then, you can have more than one cher­ry — two ear­rings. They must:

  • match the style of cloth­ing
  • com­ple­ment the out­fit and hair­style,
  • look pro­por­tion­al to the body and facial fea­tures,
  • match with oth­er acces­sories in col­or and met­al.
