They are an exquisite amalgamation between utility, luxury and beauty.

THE PIERCING TO Ear Cuff
The Piercing to Ear Cuff is the best of both worlds for your ear styling. Personally I think it adds the most flash and fun out of all the different types of ear cuffs to choose from. If you already have an earlobe piercing and are looking for something a little extra in your jewelry choice of the day with some extra spiciness, the Piercing to Ear Cuff style is here just for that. It is a regular Ear Lobe Piercing with a chain attached to a Classic Ear Cuff that then you are able to fit on any desired place of your ear. This style of cuff is the perfect design to add some punk to your look. A Piercing to Ear Cuff style can go hand in hand with the Behind the Ear Cuff as well. The options are endless! They can be as basically designed or extraordinarily created for any statement you want to make. Fare warning to Piercing to Ear Cuff styles though. Be sure that you do your hair BEFORE putting this ear jewelry on, the chain or connective piece is easy to get caught in brushes and fingers.

NOW THE QUALITY OF Ear Cuffs
Now I can’t talk about Ear Cuffs without talking about the different QUALITY options on the market. Never forget that during your search for any new jewelry pieces especially for the Type of Ear Cuff that fits your style needs, do not forget to also shop for a piece that is made of good quality materials and metals. The price really does tell a lot about the quality of the jewelry you are looking at. The cheaper the piece usually indicates cheaper quality of materials which may cause some skin itching and irritation. Be sure to avoid a seller that supplies materials such as Copper, Nickel, Brass and Bronze. These metals may cause irritation to your skin, turn your skin green and make the wear of your jewelry very uncomfortable. For best results in your jewelry, especially ear cuffs and earrings, look for these materials instead; Stainless Steel, Sterling Silver or any other Hypoallergenic Metals. As a recap, good quality jewelry will be a little bit more in price, but it will be well worth it to be able to rock any Type of Ear Cuff all day long without extra uncomfortable hassle.
