With this fast-paced, social media-driven world we inhabit, every now and then a new trend is introduced. This daily trend cycle could be a bit tricky with clothing, but with jewellery, it's different. The quality and versatility of jewellery give it durability, granting it a longer life cycle than clothes and other accessories. The right choice of jewellery can amp up your whole look in an instant. One of these pieces of jewellery that enhances our facial features is a pair of earrings. Jennifer Lopez once said, "Passing on earrings is an opportunity missed."
As the year comes to an end, while you look back at the trends that emerged this year, here is a list of trendy earrings to make sure you don’t miss out on anything.
Probably one of the first types of earrings we were all introduced to, stud earrings are simple and elegant. They give a discreet look without creating any fuzz, making them a perfect choice for daily wear as well as special occasions.
A combination of heritage and fashion, jhumkas have been in vogue for centuries. Available in gold, silver, oxidised silver, crystal, and pearl, jhumka earrings for women are a must to rock any traditional or Indo-Western attire.
Slim, tube-like, circular, and light-weight hoops are popular amongst youngsters. The size varies to suit every personality. Traditionally, hoop earrings were of a circular form, but recently, hoops in the shape of a square, star, or oval have made it to the list of fashionable earrings.
An epitome of simplicity and durability, drop earrings for women are a classic take on an extended version of stud earrings. Drop earrings are a combination of a simple chain dropping slightly below the earlobe with a ruby, stone, or pearl. Drop earrings are ideal for everyday wear because of their simple design, which avoids heavy, intricate work.
An upgrade to drop earrings, dangles are a bit dainty, heavy, and, as their name suggests, dangly. Often with a long, intricate weaving of designs and stones, danglers are a bit longer than drop earrings, allowing a little bit more movement. Diamond dangle earrings are also a popular choice for celebrities on the red carpet.
Tassels usually come in arrays of materials, such as a multiple strand or chains of metal; going down the earlobe gives them a flowy, bouncy, and lively vibe. Lightweight and bohemian, tassel earrings for women have been all over social media this year.
Ear cuffs have been an essential part of many ancient cultures. Very recently, they have made it onto the list of trendy earrings. Ear cuffs have gained popularity for the funky, "stand out in the crowd" look they give. Powerful and glamorous, ear cuffs are placed in the earlobe piercing, going all the way up to the shell of the ear. Coming with a long history, Ear cuffs are a trend to rule for a long run.
Incredibly classy, a chandelier earring resembles an ornate crystal chandelier dropping below your earlobe. Generally, they are made of diamonds or other gemstones with dark hues and intricate designs with a slight length, giving them the vibe of a magnificent chandelier. They have similarities with dangle earrings, but it's their shape that has given them their distinctive name.
A slim chain, looking like a thread, hangs on both sides of the earlobe. A long, slender chain that is lightweight and simple goes from the piercing hanging behind the ear with the help of a stud or diamond at the end of the thread, staying in the front. It doesn’t have post pushing, which allows it to be worn in double piercings as well.
Shoulder duster earrings are a long version of dangles, a slightly bold choice, going all the way down to the shoulders and enhancing the neckline. As they usually come in diamonds, go for this chunkier piece if you are in a mood to glam up.
Earrings have been elevating the look for ages and will continue to do so in the coming year. Before the year ends, get some for yourself from the trendy earrings collection of Blingvine.
