Crystal Earrings - Benefits and Types of Natural Gemstone Earrings

When it comes to crystal earrings, nothing quite says beauty more than a pair with a natural gemstone or crystal, set in sterling silver or gold.

For many, a pair of natural crystal earrings are the perfect way to make a lasting impression at a function, party or social gathering.

Nothing sparkles quite as nicely as seeing a pair of rose quartz or amethyst earrings shining in the natural light, especially on a sunny day.

One thing is for sure, and that is your sense of style will never grow old when you wear a pair of healing crystal earrings, crystal drop earrings or some lovely dangling sterling silver earrings.

Healing Crystal Earrings

The beauty of healing crystal earrings is that each stone has its healing properties as you will read below.

Every single crystal has a specific vibrational energy, which radiates around you when wearing them. It is for this reason that crystal earrings are so popular.

Many like to set their intentions within their crystal earrings and wear them as a constant reminder of their focus.

Rose Quartz Healing Earrings

Rose quartz earrings shimmer a beautiful colour of pink.

You are no doubt already aware of the fact that rose quartz has many benefits and is knows as the stone of love, infinite peace and has excellent healing energy.

Amethyst Earrings

Purple amethyst is one of the most sought after crystals on Earth today.

Amethyst has many lovely benefits including protection, selflessness, balance and inner peace.

Amethyst is excellent for enhancing your intuition and look stunning on everyone.


Quartz Earrings

We love to see quartz earrings set in sterling silver. Quartz crystal is the most powerful amplifier of all crystals.

As Judy Hall, Author of The Encyclopedia of Crystals says, 'Quartz absorbs, stores, releases, and regulates energy and is excellent for unblocking it.'

Quartz will help you develop a more positive and powerful mind. And they look stunning on.


Drop Earrings

Drop earrings work on every face type and are very popular, especially those set in sterling silver.

Herkimer diamond earrings are incredibly unique, and the clarity on these is impressive.

Rainbow Moonstone Earrings

The name 'Rainbow Moonstone' has a special ring to it. But when you hold it and move it from side to side, the true beauty shines through.

This stone is powerfully attuned to the cycles and phases of the moon and helps you develop your life cycle and become clear on your direction in life.

They say black goes with anything and likewise with tourmaline earrings.

Tourmaline will help cleanse and purify your energy and provide a protective shield around your body.

Utilise this guide to determine your face shape, and how to select the best earrings for it.

If you wish to make sure the earrings you wear will seem the most flattering on you, its best to contemplate the style and shape of the earrings, and how they look with your particular face shape.

Earrings for a round face

To start with, let's consider those with a round face shape. You face is circular, with the widest point of your face being the cheeks.

A round face does not taper narrowly down to the chin.

To balance a round face, long, dangling earrings look great.

Styles to consider include:

  • An elongated teardrop.
  • A cascade of gemstones.

Earrings for a narrow face

When it comes to a narrow face, we are talking about a longer face rather than wide.

You will find, when looking into the mirror, the cheeks, forehead and jaw are about the same width.

Tips and tricks to add fullness to a narrow face when it comes to earrings:

  • You are best off choosing round shaped earrings
  • We have a selection of round drop earrings in-store here.
  • Round studs of any type including your favourite crystal or gemstone
  • Consider button-style earrings
  • Gemstone clusters will look beautiful as well.
  • Long dangly earrings will be exquisite so long as you find some with round shapes in them. There are many polished crystal earrings finished in a round shape
  • Go for soft, round shapes to best highlight your cheekbones.

Square Face and the best earrings to consider

When it comes to a square face, we are talking about a shape that is equally long as it is wide. You will notice the cheekbones and jawline are similar or the same widths.

Remember not to wear wide earrings; they'll add to the width of your face.

Look for:

  • Rounder shapes including polished crystals and gemstones
  • button styles and dangling circular forms.
  • Hoop earrings are always very eye-catching and help you stand out from a crowd.
  • Avoid square or diamond shapes.

Best earrings for an oval-shaped face

Lucky for you if you have an oval-shaped face.

You are one of the lucky ones where nearly every type of earring shape looks good on you.

Add to your jewellery wardrobe frequently, and experiment with all the earring styles and shapes.


Best crystal earrings for you

Hopefully, the number of crystal earrings mentioned above and the styles available give you plenty of ideas.

You have likely already experimented with dozens of different styles and designs and have a shape that works great for you.

Complementing your favourite shape and style with your preferred gemstone is always rewarding.

You will feel great and the compliments will continue to flow.

You may like to complement your earrings with gemstone necklaces, chakra jewellery or crystal pendants.
