CGRdesigns - How to fit an Ear Cuff
Ear Cuff. This is how the ear cuff should look once fitted. As every person's ear is different, the wires connecting the gemstones can be gently manipulated to fit a person's individual ear as required and for the best effect. It might take a little manipulation of the cuff to get it to fit and the following illustrated instructions are to help those that are new to wearing ear cuffs.
Rear of the Ear Cuff. Here you can see the rear of the ear cuff once fitted. However, for demonstration purposes, this particular cuff has not been securely fitted. The curved piece touching the back of the ear needs to be pushed a little further back behind the ear and the very end ( the part touching the back of the ear) needs to be pinched togeter with the similar part touching the inner ear as shown in the next illustration.
Front of Ear Cuff. The part of the Ear cuff connected to the inner ear can be seen in this illustration. This is the part that needs to be pinched along with the similar part located at the back of the ear. In this illustration you can also see a small gap between the outer ear and frame of the Cuff, this indicates that this cuff has not been securely attached to the ear as mentioned in the previous illustration. This Cuff needs to be pushed further into the ear and the curved tips pinched tightly but gently with the thumb and 1st finger.
Underside of a closed cuff. This illustration shows the underside of an Ear Cuff, sililar to how it would look when you first receive it. As it is the Cuff might be ready to fit your ear straight away, but sometimes the tips of the curved prongs (arrowed) might need to be pushed apart a little to allow the Cuff to slide over the space between the outer and inner ear.
Once seperated the Ear Cuff should look something like the picture in the next illustration.
Underside of an open Ear Cuff. This is what an Ear Cuff should look like once it has been opened and is ready to be fitted to a persons ear. Once placed either side of the outer and inner ear, the tips of the curved prongs should be pinched firmly, but gently, with the thumb and 1st finger to ensure a secure fitting.
A variation in cuff design using additional curves. This cuff will also create a completely different look if it is attached to the left ear, with the curved feature located at the top of the ear.
Another Cuff design including a piercing. This is an example of another type of cuff design that has also incorporated the pierced ear within the design.
Another Cuff design displaying a single stud cuff. This design can also be used in conjunction with piercings to create different effects.
