statement earrings can be heavy

Heavy Earrings Versus Light Earrings

We all love a glamorous pair of statement earrings but for one thing—they’re heavy! We get a lot of customers asking about heavy earrings, telling us they need light earrings to be comfortable. 

But some of us are willing to forgo a touch of discomfort to look fabulous on special occasions and don’t mind a wonderful pair of heavy earrings. The style and elegance of stunning gemstones on your ears does look truly fantastic! 

As a lifelong heavy earring wearer, you get used to it. Yes they are a touch heavy but not uncomfortable and it’s easy to ignore. But I know many customers love the look of glam earrings but find the extra weight difficult to withstand. No matter your preference for heavy earrings or light earrings, we have you covered with our huge range of gorgeous earrings. 

So I’ve ranked our best selling earrings from heaviest to lightest. We’ve left out any stud earrings as they all tend to be quite light. 

Each weight is for the individual earring. We class our earring weight into two categories: 

  • heavy earring - above five grams in weight 
  • light earring- under five grams in weight 

Heavy earrings - but oh-so glamorous, glittery and gorgeous! 

Our heaviest earrings have up to three gorgeous gemstones in each pair, so it’s no wonder they have a bit of heft. But the sparkle and shimmer of these statement earrings is just magnificent. They’re definitely not for everyday wear. If you can handle a heavier earring for a special occasion, you’ll love them.

Worried about buying heavy earrings? 

If you are concerned that our earrings might be too heavy for you, please find your heaviest earrings that you can withstand wearing and weigh them using your kitchen scales. 

Once you know the weight you can comfortably wear, you’ll be able to choose with confidence. As due to health regulations there are no exchanges. See our returns policy for more information. 

We haven’t listed all the weights of our earrings here, so contact us if you’d like to know the precise weight of a product before purchasing.
