How to Find Your Perfect Pair
Like anything else you put on your body, proportions matter when it comes to earrings. Classic styling rules apply - it’s generally best to avoid wearing an earring that mirrors the shape of your face. If you’ve got a round face, go for diamond studs or dangling drops. Hoops look great framing a square face. If you’re working with an ovular complexion, the theory is that you can wear anything since your face is already proportionally balanced.
Still, the most important rule of thumb is to buy what you love. Proportional play can be a good guide if you’re having trouble making a choice, but trust what you’re naturally drawn to - you can’t go wrong with a pair of cool men’s earrings from Headcovers.

How to Style Your Men’s Earrings
Though in the past, earrings used to signal social status or religious beliefs, today they’re just a sign that you’ve got good taste. Back in the 80’s, people claimed that a single earring indicated sexual preference but now that’s an antiquated point of view. If you’re a man with pierced ears, feel free to treat earrings like any other accessory - mixing and matching according to your personal taste.
In general, stud earrings for men look great when they’re styled with a “high-low” sensibility - that is, shiny studs paired with sneakers, a basic matte finish matched with dress shoes, or lava loops with jeans and a T-shirt. It’s all about balancing visual interest throughout your outfit - if one piece is flashier, then tone down another.
Why Our Jewelry is Lead & Nickel Free
The basic logic behind lead & nickel-free jewelry is the acknowledgement that skin is porous. Because skin is porous, it’s also absorbent, which means that what’s on your skin counts. When skin becomes cracked and brittle in dry air, you put lotion on to make it smooth, right? The same thing happens with other materials that sit close to your skin. Accessories containing lead & nickel are harmful because of the toxins absorbed into the body. While your kidneys are able to filter out most nickel absorbed, over time constant exposure creates buildup that can poison the body.
On a more immediate note, jewelry containing nickel can evoke or develop an allergic reaction in the wearer, including rashes and irritation of the skin. For cancer patients whose skin is extra sensitive to begin with, this can be uncomfortable as well as harmful.
Our jewelry is not only meant to look great - it should feel great, too. That’s something you can feel confident about with hypoallergenic men's earrings from Headcovers.
