Tips for Buying Earrings as a Gift
- Know your recipient’s fashion taste. If they keep their look simple, a pair of studs is the way to go, but if they are outgoing with their fashion choices, a bold drop or chandelier earring might be best.
- Do they have allergies to any metals? Some earrings are made with metals such as nickel that might irritate the skin. To be safe, opt for a pair of earrings with a gold post or hoop.
- Know their face. Not kidding. The shape of their face and their hairstyle might influence your gifting decision.
