Original Post

I have a LOT of earrings, and I just categorize them by length. But I'm trying to think of something more descriptive.

What are some good 'single words' to describe jewelry in general?

Some I thought of so far are ...

- earthy
- elegant
- classic
- bright
- pastel
- wedding

.... ??

What about color or metal? Like if you do gold silver and copper? It's tough. Let's see how about vintage beads, gems, glass, pearls?

Maybe still by size put not with numbers. Maybe like Dangles, Studs, etc

or for your idea, you could have an everyday, special day, night life, etc.

Its tough when you think about earrings that can fit into more than one category.
