Best size for everyday earrings?
Any thoughts? I know we've done this before, but I can't find a thread and don't really remember the concencus.Blush I,m thinking 5mm per lobe....but could be convinced to upsize. Hehehe.

Martini or baskets?

Pix welcome and helpful!!

Good question, PMR I was just thinking that! I am getting 2 5mm oec stones from JooJoo and I am trying to figure out whether I want earrings or save them for a 3 stone.. I am loving the bezel set style

We never really grow up.. We just learn how to act in public

5mm is a GREAT everyday size. Not too obvious but has presence. Either basket types would be nice Smile

5mm moissy bezels vs 6mm ashas octet (which now belong to missmegan)

I think it depends on the size of your ears. I felt like my 6.4mm bezel studs were a little too small for everyday until I pierced my ears another two times: after that, I felt like it was just right! Sort of the earlobe equivalent of how a five-stone will give you good finger coverage. Smile

But I have REALLY. BIG. EARS. So if I were to go for single piercings? I think something around 2 carats per ear/8mm per ear would probably be my target size ....

I do have those 6mm prong studs Smile I love them and wear them every day! The size did take me a bit to get used to tho as I went from never wearing earrings to 6mm lol

I think 5mm is a good size for everyday wear. I prefer martini style earrings.

One day, I'll be a crazy old lady weighed down by all my baubles and it will be glorious.

I have 6mm moissy bezels, and I think they're perfect. I have kinda big earlobes though.

RE: Best size for everyday earrings?
You know...I THOUGHT 5mm was going to be perfect as that was the consensus....

BUT not for me...I was disappointed. So I save up and got my 6.5 each in bezels and they are perfect.

I really really believe it depends on your ear lobes..and I apparently have a lOT of real-state on mine!!

the best thing I did AFTER I got the 5mm..(should have done this before) was order cheapies on Amazon and see what size I like on me.

Between your choices...I like martinis!!
