These are also good for people who have small features or short hair that may be overwhelmed by large earrings. Large hoop earrings, on the other hand, are great for people who want to be noticed, have large features, or long hair.

The earrings can be as simple or elaborate as you want them to be. A lot of people opt to get the simple ring style of sterling silver hoop earrings. However, you can also get some that are more detailed. A popular kind of detailed earring is those that have charms which dangle from the bottom of the earring.

H. Stern Jewelry - European Influence in Rio

Hans Stern, a German émigré, began to find success in the Rio de Janeiro when he entered the gemstone trading business at the age of 22. It was 1945 when he began and only a few years later in the early 1950s, his jewelry business was becoming known internationally. The secret to such young and powerful success was high quality gemstones that were unmatched, and a rigorous marketing plan that drew attention. The H. Stern Company is well known today in Brazil and around the world. In 1964, H. Stern jewelry earned the recognition of Time magazine calling the business "the king of diamonds and colored gems, capable of unveiling the personality hidden in every precious stone."
