Poll : Symmetrical or Asymmetrical Earrings?


I was shopping with my poly friends yesterday.. We went to CK Tangs as my friend would like to buy a pair of earrings that she has her eye on. On our way there, she asked me how come I don't make any Asymmetrical earrings. My reply was I did but it seems like most people don't like asymmetrical earrings as I didn't manage to sell any.. so I decided to stick to symmetrical ones.

But I wonder if that is REALLY true... thus I decided to have a poll on my blog.. The poll question is, do you prefer symmetrical or asymmetrical earrings? If you were to buy a pair of earrings for yourself or a friend, would you get a symmetrical one or an asymmetrical one?

Please cast your vote and leave me a comment of your vote in this blog so that I can identify you. At the end of the poll, I will select a lucky winner who will receive a secret and new piece of jewelry!

I love Tangs! Glad to hear it still there! Happy New Year!

Most of mine are symmetrical, however I have now bought some that are asymmetrical and really like them. I don't always believe in "staying in the box"

Audrey said...

Oh - I voted awymmetrical!

i took your poll but I'm definitely asymmetrical - if I wear two of the same earrings, they're on one ear and something else is on the other ear.

For myself, I'd definitely buy asymmetrical earrings, so that's my vote. For a gift thoguh, it would depend on the recipient.

This is a great poll and I'm excited to hear the answer...I'm wondering what people respond to about necklaces? I would by asymetrical ones only if they were extremely cool and perfect for me. I bought an asymetrical necklace that I LOVE but haven't worn it much since I have to have the perfect outfit for it. I have attempted to create some asymetrical things myself but it is extremely difficult for me (i have an engineering background). I'll be keeping an eye on this poll!

I tend to like most things to be symmetrical.

I voted, I chose Symmetrical ones. But asymmetrical ones could be real fun.

I think symmetrical ones look more appealing. More balanced.

Flamingo Junction said...

While I've seen some very cool asymmetrical ones, all of mine are symmetrical, so I guess that's my choice!

Softpencil said...

I like both two, symmetrical and assymetrical earrings buy I chose assymetrical ones ;)

Splendid Things said...

I prefer Symmetric. Not sure why...I usually like things to be very linear and straight, orderly, etc... Thanks for the chance to win!

interesting poll! I like both for different occasions but i'd say assymetrical...it's more fun

kiddlebug said...

I usually gravitate toward the symmetrical ones as well.

byrheea said...

Interesting question. Actually I'm fine with both as long as I like the design.

I've voted for symmetrical though since I have more of those in my jewelry box now. Good luck with the poll :)

Probably symmetrical, but I'd be interested in cool asymmetrical ones like a paisley/ tear shape might be interesting... Try it! Best of luck!

Mich said...

Hey Piggy,

Don't worry, I'm sure you won't need tissue paper to watch the Twilight. It is not suppose to be a sad story (at least not in part 1).

I've almost completed the book last night and I really love (X3) it.

Hope you'll enjoy it too :)

Cheers~
Rheea

I am a huge fan of asymmetrical designs in jewelry.

Soyun Park said...

Ummm.. I am sorry.
But, I have to say I love both. One day I love this, the other day I love that. So, for me it doesn't really matter. I rather care if those are really my style.

I voted asymmetrical. Looking at my earring collection, most are symmetrical, but my favourite pairs are always the asymmetrical ones. I just think they have more character.

CopperSpringsLeather said...

I like the symmetrical one

Meekiyu said...

symmetrical all the way =D
it makes me feel balanced!

Linda said...

My best friend adores asymetrical earrings so when it comes to gift giving, I have a very difficult time finding them because there just aren't a lot of them out there! Personally, I like both, but I'm allergic to everything, including all grades of gold, silver, stainless steel etc,.... It would really be nice to find someone out there who makes fabulous asymetrical earrings!
