Tips to keep in mind before buying a Jhumka
Now that we have tapped on the most trending gold jhumka in the market, let's look at some of the tips that need to be kept in mind before buying a Jhumka.
In the case of Jhumkas, it is important to keep in mind the length of the neck and the length of the Jhumka you are setting out to purchase. This because a Jhumka sitting on the shoulder is not as preferable as one that dangles mid-air.
It is critical to buy a jhumka that suits your features. And hence the dome of the Jhumka needs to be in proportion to your face, which is why it is best to just try them on and see.
If you are looking to use a Jhumka at a series of events then the weight of the Jhumka should also be kept in mind as the heavier ones cannot be worn for too long. This because many women have delicate earlobe piercings that might not support very heavy Jhumkas. In which case, a Jhumka with a lighter base is the best go-to option with a strong back screw support.
