Ear cuffs are ear adornments fastened along the side of the ear above the earlobe. They are slid along the topmost part of the ear where the cartilage is thinnest. As they slide down to the side, they are turned to face forward until they are positioned alongside the ear canal.
Ear cuffs can be made in sterling silver, gold, and copper. They are available in plain bands or fancy wire structures that can be adorned with gemstones or beads.
