My personal favorite piece of jewelry are earrings, so we will start with them. They have a big impact on your look, because earrings are in the line of vision, people see it while they are looking at and and talking to you.
Living in the south, I have been told many times by our older clients how it used to be un-ladylike to have an ear piercing. That is why clip-ons were so popular in 1930's and 40's.
Stud earring:The simple studs in my opinion are just like a little black dress, every woman need to have one! Diamond studs are the ultimate, heirloom worthy, go with everything earrings, But color stones, pearls or just a simple gold or silver are also as versatile. You can't go wrong with studs, they will look good with any style and any hair length/face shape. There is not a wrong way to wear them.
Picture#1 is a pair Moissanite Stud earrings that have gained a lot of attention lately. They offer the look and durability of diamonds but at a much more affordable price range.

Hoops:Chances are you have multiple pairs of hoops, in different sizes, colors, with or with out stones. I would have to to say They are the most popular type of earrings right after the studs. They been around forever, but became huge in the 90's and kind of became a classic.
If you have a longer face with finer bones the thinner but bigger in diameter looks best on you. A thicker or wider hoop between 1-2" in diameter will compliment a fuller/round face.

Chandelier earring:My most favorite! Long drops and chandler earrings are sure to draw attention. Their job is to make a statement. if you are petite you may want to stay away from very large or long chandelier earring, since they will over power you. Also don't over accessories with these! A statement necklace usually will compete with a chandelier earring and they are better to be worn separately.
I can sit here and post so many pictures of beautiful drop earrings, I'll just have to stop myself at these three!!
