    My dd is in the NAPS c/o 2016. I want to get her some small, understated stud earrings as a gift.
    I understand that officers and mids wear gold and enlisted silver. (And pearls for dress uniform).
    Which is correct for a NAPSter?

    One earring per ear (centered on earlobe) may be worn while in uniform. Earrings shall be 4mm - 6mm ball (approximately 1/8 - 1/4 inch), plain with shiny or brushed matte finish, screw on or with posts. Gold for officers/CPOs, and silver for enlisted personnel. Small single pearl earrings are authorized for wear with Dinner and Formal Dress uniforms. You can buy these at the PX on base. They aren't expensive. She won't be wearing them during the summer, not enough time and will get lost.

    Thanks. But I still have the question of gold vs silver for NAPS?

    I believe when they attend NAPS, they are enlisted at the E-1 seaman recruit equivalent rank so silver?

    Gold from what I can tell. Looking at NAPS pictures their rank insignia and belt buckles are gold, so it should be gold.

    Bring both; they don't take up much room. "The only thing that separates us from the animals is the ability to accessorize !" Fried Green Tomatoes
