Just how heavy is the heaviest pair of earrings you can comfortably wear? Are some earrings just too heavy, and is there a maximum recommended weight for earrings?
Or rather, what’s the ideal weight of the perfect earrings?
If you’ve come across someone who fancies heavy earrings, you could be wondering, how do they do it, and most importantly, just how heavy are the earrings?
Well, in this article, we’ll take a look at what you need to know about the ideal weight of comfortable earrings. So, let’s get started!
Is 10 grams heavy for earrings?
Whether you are looking for loops, dangling earrings, or even clip earrings, the ideal weight of the earrings would be the weight at which your earlobes can carry the earrings most comfortably. Some people can comfortably keep on long and heavy earrings, while others cannot wear earrings more than a few grams.
Well, the truth is that the 10g earrings are often among the heavier earrings, and most people consider this the heavier set of earrings, and it is pretty much the upper weight limit acceptable for most people.
If you are worried that your earlobes will not be able to handle the extra weight of the earrings or if you prefer featherweight earrings, then you will be very uncomfortable with the 10g earrings.
If this is the first time that you are looking for relatively heavy earrings, but you are not sure about the exact feel of the earrings, then your upper weight limit for the earrings should be between 7g and 10g.
Wondering when it would be ideal to buy and wear the heavier 10g earrings?
Well, first, these earrings are ideal for you if your earlobes can handle the extra weight, but also if the earrings are just too pretty for you to ignore –especially if the earrings seem to always get you the best and the biggest compliments.
Is 6 grams heavy for earrings?
No, it’s not. 6g is actually the ideal weight for most of the earrings. So if you are not sure about a comfortable weight for your earrings, we’d recommend the 6g earrings.
That said, we’ll add one caveat – that in as much as 6g earrings can be the ideal option for most people, our earlobes are different, and they can only carry on too much, which means that for some people, the 6g earrings can be very heavy. If you fall in this category, then the lighter 4g earrings would be a much better fit for you.
Keep in mind that regardless of the uniqueness of the earrings and how glamorous they look, you always have to think about the comfort level of the earrings and how or if you can keep them on for the required number of hours without the earrings looking like they are dragging your earlobes down with them or you being in pain.
So, the 6g earrings are relatively lightweight, but for other people, they may still be heavy. Before you buy new earrings, you need to first establish that you can keep the earrings on comfortably.
The average weight of earrings in kg?
The average weight of the best pair of earrings is 6g or 0.006kgs. This is the weight that ensures the best level of comfort for your earrings.
How heavy is too heavy for your ears?
We all have to agree that we have a pair or two of elegant earrings, but these earrings are also quite heavy, which means that you cannot wear them as often as you’d like because the earrings can pull and tug on your earlobes too much.
For most people, earrings that weigh over 7g -10g each are quite heavy, and very few people find that these earrings are comfortable to keep on for hours.
Basically, any earring that weighs more than 10g is heavy, and it might not be the most comfortable option for you.
Tips for wearing heavy earrings?
If and when you have to wear heavy earrings, the tips shared below will ensure that you are comfortable and your earlobes are not pulled down too much.
1. Get the ear Ser
If your earrings are too heavy, and you know that you must keep them on, you might want to invest in something like the simple metal chain, which would help out in keeping the weight out of the earlobe.
The Ear Ser is what allows you to attach the earrings, protecting the ears.
You could also pin the end of the string to the other end of the ear or your hair to ensure maximum support.
2. Get an invisible patch.
This is a recommended strategy for you if your drop earrings are quite hefty. The invisible patch helps when the weight of the earrings is concentrated in one area.
The patch protects your earlobes from too much stretching, and it also reduces the amount of pain that you may feel.
You could also use an invisible patch to ensure the best level of weight distribution.
3. Apply numbing cream
You need numbing cream if you wear heavy earrings often. This way, you will not feel the weight of your earrings.
Just make sure you use the cream once, and if you feel that you need to use the numbing cream too often, then it means that the earrings are too heavy.
4. Convert the earrings into clip-ons
These earrings will bear the extra weight of the earrings.
Opt for the bigger, heavy-looking earrings that are made of lightweight materials like wood or even lightweight metals
The best earrings are the most comfortable earrings for you, which means that you should invest in lightweight earrings or basically earrings you feel good in, without having to worry about severe damage to your ears.
