These earrings don’t have to be removed before turning in for a good night’s sleep. Diamonds are a classic choice of studs that can grace the earrings of toddlers with newly pierced ears as well as an adult. The smooth and round shape of pearl studs will comfortably sink into the pillow without causing the slightest trace of discomfort. Being light on the ears, they don’t require nightly removal. You can easily wear other gemstone studs to bed provided the stones are set in the design carefully and they don’t have sharp edges.

Hoop earrings

Hoop earrings being chic carry a unique appeal to women of all age groups. If you don’t want the bother of removing earrings before bedtime then hoops can serve as an uncomplicated choice. Plain gold hoops are both simple and elegant. You can wear it to bed and go to college or work the next day without changing your earrings. If you are into silver, you can get plain silver hoops that can be worn even in the second piercings above your ear lobes without feeling the pinch.

What are sleeper earrings?

Just as the name suggests, these earrings are specially designed for being worn while sleeping. They are crafted from soft materials like rubber or silicone and feature a small hole in the center allowing the earlobe to breathe. Other than preventing sleep creases, the sleep earrings can also help relieve pressure levied on the earlobes while sleeping sideways. They are made from hypoallergenic materials like sterling silver, nickel-free gold, or stainless steel.

Earrings you should avoid sleeping in

You should avoid sleeping in dangle or bigger hoop earrings as they are uncomfortable and increase the chances of your earlobes getting split or pulled.


We might like sleeping in our earrings for an array of reasons like a special event the following day where we wish to avoid the haste of putting them on. Our ears might be sensitive and frequent changing might trigger pain. It is advised not to take off the earrings following a fresh piercing as the holes might close up if they aren’t healed properly. Irrespective of the reason, it is always better to choose the perfect type of earrings if we consider hitting the sheets in them. Your chosen earpieces should be clean and devoid of any dirt or makeup as sleeping in dirty earrings can cause infection. If you have long hair, then tie it up so that your earpieces don’t get tangled.
