It's a great question!
What are drop earrings?
As the name suggests, drop earrings "drop" below the wearer's earlobe. Generally, a charm, bead or stone is attached to a base, and it is fixed in a way that it doesn't move. The closure for drop earrings is usually a post, stud or hook. Where a hook is used, the earrings are usually all one piece - the hook holds the earring in place, as well as holding the decoration.
What are dangle earrings?
Dangle earrings are super fun! They are fixed in a way that allows them to hang and move from side to side when the wearer moves. Like a drop earring, dangle earrings also hang below the earlobe, and come in all different lengths. Some are even so long as to reach your shoulders!
Can an earring be both a dangle and a drop?
This is another great question! A dangle can be a drop, but a drop cannot be a dangle! By their design, drop earrings are not made to move unless in line with the wearer's movement.
