Studs

It is earrings that feature only one stationary ornament, such as a solitary stone or singular metal shape. They wear through a small hole in the earlobe.

For casual occasions, there are simple and stylish drop earrings as well.

 

Threaders

Threader earrings are backed with light flexible chains "threads", simply threaded through the pierced earlobes and allowed to dangle.
