You know that historians say that humans have worn earrings for more than 7,000 years? They’ve been used to represent cultural identity and were even believed to have protective powers. And one look at J-Lo in her gold hoops explains why. Is anything more epic? We think not. But if hoops aren’t your thing, don’t worry, we’ve got plenty of other styles. Stud, diamond or pearl. Or gorgeous gold earrings. We reckon they’re all pretty amazing. We even have a perfect collection of wedding day jewellery. At Hoskings we cater for all styles. You can choose a set of stunning natural gemstones or sparkly cubic zirconia sets. And if you just can’t choose, you can mix and match! If earrings are your thing, we promise we’ll have a perfect pair for your ear lobes.
At Hoskings we think the best earrings for your face shape are the ones you like to wear! Although the only rule is that you should feel fabulous, here are some guidelines that might help you decide which earrings are best for you.
- Heart shape face - earrings that are wider at the bottom create a lovely balance. Look for teardrop or hook earrings.
- Oval shape face – anything will look gorgeous! Choose from studs, sleepers, cluster earrings, ear climbers and hoops to highlight your cheekbones.
- Round shape face – drop or thread earrings will elongate your features beautifully.
- Long shape face – add balance with studs, short dangles, halo and huggie earrings.
- Square shape face – choose medium to long hoops or any round studs.

In Australia, we measure the purity of gold in carats (cts). Pure gold is 24cts which means that it’s quite soft and not suitable for wearing as everyday jewellery. Adding other metals such as copper, silver or nickel makes the gold more durable. 18ct gold is a mix/or alloy of 18 parts pure gold and 6 parts of other metals.
We think 9 carat is best for gold earrings as it offers all the stunning shine but is far more durable to wear every day.
The best type of earrings depends on a number of factors, such as your budget, how often you wear them, whether you’ll be able to take good care of them, and more. We love gold bonded because it offers both affordability and quality.
It’s important to make sure you keep your earrings clean to avoid the build-up from hair products etc. Hoskings suggests cleaning your earrings weekly, or whenever you switch between new pairs. Here’s the best way to keep them sparkling:
