Earrings by Blingvine
Earrings have always been one of the most essential accessories for women. All fashion conscious women have a big earrings collection in their wardrobe. Specially when it comes to Indian women, earrings have always been a must have. Many women don’t step out without a pair of earrings.
Types of earrings
With the kind of history and significance they get, naturally they come in various styles. Here we summarize each earring style and its nuances.
Jhumka is one of the most popular Indian earring designs. It has been an integral part of Indian aesthetics and mentioned in various popular bollywood and folk songs. The reason for this love is that it's perfect for any traditional outfit. Be it a saree, lehenga or a suit, jhumkas go perfectly with them. A classic statement earring, jhumkas are regularly worn in family functions in India.
A typical jhumka has two parts to it. One part stays steady on the ear lobe and a half dome structure hangs from it with a link. The hanging part can also be decorated with small pearls or meenakari and kundan work. A smaller version is also known as jhumki earrings and can be a daily wear accessory. Silver jhumkis with antique finish have also made a comeback in recent years. Gold plated jhumkas specially in rose gold polish have also seen a lot of demand this year.
Drop earrings or danglers have become more popular recently. A lot of designer earrings come in this style. It’s considered to be a very modern design and can be often seen in formal events. In terms of attire it compliments a gown or a indo-western dress very beautifully.
Drop earrings are generally much longer than other types of earrings. They are usually decorated with crystals or high quality american diamonds. Because of its long and thin silhouette these earrings need to be shinier to draw attention.
Another variation of drop earrings or danglers is chandelier earrings. They are big and bold designs with multiple tassels made out of american diamonds or crystals. They could be perfect for really important family events or media appearances to make a fashion statement.
Every girl’s first pair of earrings is usually a pair of stud earrings. Stud earrings are relatively small in size and really easy to carry. They are the perfect earrings for girls when they start accessorizing. They are also considered very formal and modest so they can be worn in your place of study or work.
Pearl stud earrings and diamond stud earrings are very popular in this segment. Both of them are lightweight and don’t put too much stress on earlobes. So they are perfect daily wear.
Hoop earrings or loops are another earring style that has been popular for a long time. We’ve all seen our grandmothers wearing their cherished gold baalis on a daily basis. It used to be the de-facto gold earrings for that generation.
Hoop earrings have gone through an interesting evolution. On one side, hoop earrings have evolved into a modern style as big hoops which are minimalist statement pieces. On the other hand, they’ve come back as chandbali earrings which are perfect statement pieces for traditional outfits. Chandbalis can be seen often on Indian TV shows paired with a heavy saree or lehenga.
Ear cuffs are very different from most of the other styles. They stay firmly on the entire length of the ear, with an additional support for the upper ear. They are usually decorated with beautiful gemstones or patterns to make a statement.
Ear cuffs can also be seen in oxidized silver jewellery with an antique look. A lot of them also come with tassels decorated with small pearls or cubic zirconia.
Traditionally all the jewellery used to be gold or silver. So gold earrings are one of the most popular accessories and it also makes a good gift for a girl with traditional sensibilities. But with modern designs and technology, fashion earrings now come in a lot of new materials.
Crystal or cubic zirconia is now becoming even more popular than diamond earrings because of affordability. Latest earrings also come in multicolor rather than plain diamonds. A lot of artificial gemstones are used to bring colors to designs. They are perfect for party wear along with big necklaces.
Pearl earrings have gained popularity as an office wear accessory. Some of our pearl earrings continue to be the bestsellers in this segment. They can be paired with a matching pendant as well to create a cohesive look.
The traditional gold earrings now come with gold plating in various shades including rose gold and rhodium polish. This allows us to create some really stylish earring designs. Kundan earrings have made a comeback in recent years in big dangler earrings, jhumkas or chandbali styles.
