Hottest Styles of Anime Earrings 2022
Anime has become one of the biggest worldwide sensations of our time. Thousands of episodes are watched daily from a variety of shows. That makes it even harder to choose the right Anime Earrings, especially if selecting for a loved one. This guide will walk you through the ins and outs of the different styles of Anime Earrings available right here at Extra Earrings.
Engraved Metal Charm Anime Earrings
One of the most common types of Anime Earrings are made from Engraved Metal Charms. The Metal is engraved in a character or symbol and then painted to unleash the iconic style. Metal charms are also one of the most long lasting types of Anime Earrings. Because the metal is engraved, there are ridges that separate colors. Things like eyebrows are colored on the top of the ridges, while flesh tones and color of hair and clothing are painted in the insets. For example, because of the engravings on our Nezuko Earrings, featured on the left, show a clear separation of colors without any color bleeding.
The downside is that the metal earrings can be a little heavier than other materials, but can always be worn with Earring Support Backs to ensure that ears are not stressed.
Glossy Metal Charm Anime Earrings
Glossy Metal Charms are a second style used in creating Anime Earrings. Glossy Metal Charms also have high detail, but the characters are illustrated in a smooth, glossy finish. In this example, Pain from Naruto is seen in high detail, with his Cloud Akatsuki Coat and metal facial piercings. This level of detail and contrast would be unavailable in other styles.
Again the downside is that metal charms are heavier than othere mediums, so earring support backs are always recommended.
Acrylic Charm Anime Earrings
Acrylic charms offer the highest level of detail of all Anime Earrings. A highly detailed character is printed on a thin acrylic base. Thin lines add contrast and bright colors make the designs come alive. Creators are able to print highly detailed drawings directly on the thin acrylic layer. For example, our Levi Ackerman Earrings showcase the fine detail of the character while still being light enough to wear all day.
Unfortunately, because each character is printed on the acylic like a sticker, they are also the style that is most easily damageable. Without a layer of protection, daily use could scratch and dull the design. For that reason, Extra Earrings always coats the design in a protective layer before any jewelry is created.
Metal Post Anime Earrings
Another popular style of Anime Earrings places famous symbols onto metal studs. This creates a smaller earring that does not dangle and has a flat back. Because studs can be equipped with a number of styles, designs can be found in almost every Manga available. Metal Post earrings are great if you are new to wearing earrings, want to be sure to wear lightweight styles, or want to make a more subtle statement.
Our Full Metal Alchemist Earrings are a great example of the Metal Post style. They feature a highly detailed design with a domed acrylic top. The acrylic protects the design while the silver post provides long lasting comfort.
Hanafuda Earrings were made popular by the show Demon Slayer. In that show, the main character Tanjiro's family is killed by demons, but somehow his younger sister, Nezuko, survives infected. In this extraordinary tale of the strength of family, Tanjiro wears earrings passed down to him by his father and is linked to the powers he develops. Different characters have different patterns that they wear and these patterns are showcased in the Hanafuda Earrings.
The Hanafuda style is further expanded to include other earrings and neclaces featuring a detailed design on a large rectangular diaplay. Extra Earrings features both acrylic and metal Hanafuda Designs. For example, the Dark Hanafuda Earrings featured on the left utilize a painted acrylic display. We also carry metal Hanafuda Necklaces. Each of the detailed designs are painted on a metal plate and paired with a metal chain necklace.
Cosplay is an art form that allows anyone to connect with their inner hero... or villian. People go to great lengths to recreate the look and style of their favorite characters. One of the things that they strive to create is iconic jewelry from their favorite shows, whether it is sporting Hanafuda Earrings from Demon Slayer or finding the perfect Anime Earrings for Princess Elizabeth from 7 Deadly Sins. Extra Earrings is always on the lookout for pieces we can transform into the perfect Cosplay Anime Earrings for you.
One of my favorite pairs in our Cosplay Earrings is our Kurapika Earrings. Kurapika is a character in Hunter X Hunter that wears a very specific pair of Earrings. The Kurapika Earrings actually link directly with his story, from the dangling chains that represent his Nin power to the bright red teardrop gem.
