Since you are here for Gold Earrings for Men, let’s jump right back into the topic of discussion for this blog post. Here are the top questions we get from guys and girls about men’s earrings –

  1. What is correct – Men’s Earrings or Men’s Earring?

Either can be true because unlike women’s earrings, men can either wear the earring on one ear or both. When they wear it on one, it’s called Men’s Earring and when they do it on both, naturally it’s called Men’s Earrings. Most retailers, like KuberBox, sell them in pieces and not pairs to not confuse their customers regarding which items are available in pairs and which are available in pieces. Anyone who wants to wear on both ears, can simply place their orders for 2 pieces of the earring.
