I'm a first-time ear cuff buyer with small ears and I thought this size would work. I've sen ear cuffs worn 2 different ways, even on the maison miru site. It's too big for my upper ear no matter how much I tighten it - I don't think my ears are shaped for wearing it like that, and it falls off. And it's too small to wrap around the middle side ear bump. I don't know if that makes any sense without visuals, but I hope it's helpful. The cuff itself seems well-made and is lovely.
