Your friends will love wearing their new cat-inspired earrings over and over. And, to help you in your search, this page provides you with a few tips and ideas.
Choose the material
Depending on your friend’s taste, you can get earrings in a wide selection of metals. Earrings made of gold, platinum, silver, copper, and pewter are the most common. Indeed, gold cat earrings are some of the most popular items of cat theme jewelry.
Other popular materials include glass, clay, and enamel. And don’t forget high-end earrings inlaid with precious, semi-precious stones, and pearls.
Focus on the design
You must consider the recipient’s individual taste in jewelry during the selection process. You will find different types of earrings, including cat stud earrings and cat hoop earrings. To help you select the perfect cat earring, here are some ideas to think about:
--Breeds: If your friend likes a particular breed, then give her a set of cat earrings depicting her favorite breed. Among the most popular breeds are the Siamese and the Persian. And I’ve found lovely earrings showcasing the beauty of these breeds.
--Faces or bodies? Some jewelers focus on the face of the cat while others do full bodies. So you may have to decide whether you want an earring with a cute cat face on it, or earrings that capture the grace and agility of the feline body.
--A whimsical touch: You can give earrings that depict funny cats or pieces that portray a scene of cats frolicking.
--For the sophisticated cat lover: Give her earrings encrusted with precious or semiprecious stones.
--You can also find dangling earrings, fish hook earrings, and as I said before, stud-type earrings and hoop earrings with cats on them. Choose the ones that fit best with your friend’s style.
In addition to these ideas also consider:
If you prefer to give a gift that is out of the ordinary, give a pair of unique earrings. Here are some ideas, among many others:
--Egyptian-inspired earrings: Earrings depicting the Egyptian goddess Bast are very popular.
--Famous-cats jewelry: If your friend is also a fan of popular cartoon cats or famous cats such as Garfield, then give them a fun set of earrings celebrating their favorite character. I’ve found earrings of famous cats including Garfield, the Lion King, and the Cheshire cat.
--Cloisonné earrings: The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition, defines cloisonné as the “decorative enamelwork in which metal filaments are fused to the surface of an object to outline a design that is filled in with enamel paste.” Cloisonné earrings make lovely gifts for cat lovers.
--Custom-made earrings: Some jewelers and online stores allow you to design your own jewelry pieces.
--Also consider beaded earrings and earrings made of wire. You can find truly imaginative pieces at affordable prices.
