One of the most popular television shows of all time, f.r.i.e.n.d.s has secured a special place in the hearts of millions with its cast of beloved characters. Fans have rewatched the show countless times and wars have broken out between streaming platforms to secure the rights to this show. After 10 whole seasons, fans have gone on to create fanfictions, bizarre theories and character social media accounts that bring the characters to life.
It seems like people just can’t get enough of these comfort characters, which is why, we’ve delved into the minds of these sitcom individuals to give you an experience to shop for earrings as your favourite characters:
Who better to start off this list than the most fashion-obsessed of the group, Rachel. Always dressed up in chic and trendy outfits, Rachel tends to have a versatile wardrobe. After all, she did leave her job at the iconic coffeehouse to join the fashion industry. In the jewellery department, she has always gone for the minimalist style, often seen wearing petite earrings and sleek necklaces. Even on occasions such as the award show, she clubs a chunky choker with a pair of dainty danglers. Throughout the seasons, her earrings collection is seen to grow with small and comfortable danglers and studs, which she clearly looks fabulous in.
The lovable geek of the group probably isn’t taking a peek at any jewellery shop but if he were to be buying a pair of earrings to impress Rachel during one of their ‘breaks’, we know just what he’d go for. Considering his love for paleontology and Rachel’s taste for dainty earrings, we think he’d either go for studs that fit the old school aesthetic or nature inspired danglers.
As the widely called ‘unofficial den mother’ of the group, Monica stays true to her perfectionist personality trait even as she styles herself. Frequently seen adorning sophisticated pieces of jewellery, with a slight preference for pearls, Monica is known to own the effortless elegant, yet somewhat chic look. With a mix of studs, hoops, but mostly danglers, Monica has one of the coolest jewellery collections in the show.
The ever popular flirt and star of Days Of Our Lives, Joey, may be seen quite often at a jewellery store. Confused? Let me clarify - It wouldn’t have been a surprise to anybody if there was an episode in which we follow Joey going on his usual jewellery store run in order to get a gift to impress his current girlfriend. He’d be seen walking up to her at the coffeehouse with a classic “How you doin’” and a smirk only for the scene to end with the woman sighing. How so?, you must be wondering. You see, while Joey is extremely caring and undeniably the biggest flirt of the show, he’s probably messed up by buying a gift as per his likings instead of his girlfriend. Since he’s constantly seen in loud and trendy, classic bad-boy outfits, he’d surely go for statement earrings that are funky such as ones with distinct designs or wildlife prints.
An embodiment of free spirit, Phoebe is all about the hippie aesthetic. Wild, vibrant and colourful fits with even wilder and quirkier jewellery, are her typical looks. As a true wanderer of life, she is assumed to shop at thrift stores. Usually seen in vintage, bold and lively earrings, she has developed a fascinating style, one that’s hard to replicate and almost impossible to top!
The most relatable character for all the 9-to-5-ers who use humour to cover up their pain, is now a stay-at-home dad! His cosy and casual style clubs well with Monica’s practical outfits, which is why he just can’t go wrong while gifting her some jewellery. The friends turn lovers know each other thoroughly, which is why we can confidently assume that he’d get her exactly what she’d want, that is, some graceful pairs of comfortable earrings.
It’s been 18 years since the sitcom came to an end, but there is no stopping the love and excitement it sets off in fans. Now, universally deemed a classic TV show, f.r.i.e.n.d.s is set to live on, with new fans joining and creating more of such imaginary scenarios and just having fun - like friends.
