When people think about finding gifts for cat lovers they usually end up with a funny mug or even a wine glass. Find something a little more unique and personal with cat earrings. Not just a small studs, which doesn’t really require must thought, but something a little more adventurous!
A popular option is a pair of plain gold or silver studs in a cat or kitten shape. These may be sterling silver or 14, 18 or 21k gold or for a cheaper option, a coating can be added onto a surgical stainless steel base. In some instances an acrylic may be used and then powder coated with a silver or gold color. Whilst this is the cheapest option it can still produce a nice result for a lower price point when searching for gifts for cat lovers.
When looking at the options, it is important to look at the quality of the attachment of the stud to the post. There should not be any gaps and the adhesive should not be too messy on the reverse of the earring. If there is any movement between the post and earring main design, look for a more sturdy pair or change price point or brands.
If the item is for a gift, check the item is boxed. If it is not, and many online stores now ship items well protected but only in plastic, you may need to buy a gift presentation box. This reduces the price of the earring upfront, but check before purchase so you know what you are getting.
For a unique option, there are some studs which when worn, look like cats or kittens handing off of the ear of the wearer. The head part of the cat is a traditional type of stud, but instead of a flush back on the reverse of the ear lobe, a cat body is attached. This creates a three dimensional look with the cat hanging on the ear. It gives a dramatic effect and for those people who have not seen them, it can bring the wow factor. Or in this case the meow factor!
This type of option is not practical for leaving in at night as they are quite bulky, but are completely comfortable for wear during the day or when the wearer is out and about. There are also matching rings which can be purchased which give the same effect. If you are looking for a higher price point, they can be purchased and created into a set to give as a lovely gift.
