There are many different styles of earrings, from hoops and chandeliers to linear designs and clips. The style you choose should depend on the occasion, your outfit, and the rest of the jewellery you plan to wear. Here are three elegant earrings styles and why we love them at Cynthia Findlay Antiques.
Drop earrings come in both long and short versions, but are usually linear in design. The drop earring can be a very elegant addition to an otherwise simple jewellery set. We especially love drop pearl earrings. Many drop earrings can be incredible statement pieces, and can easily dress up a simple black dress. We wouldn’t wear drop earrings with a jeans and t-shirt though. Keep them for formal occasions to create a look that is both classic and contemporary.
It doesn’t get more elegant than classic stud earrings. Every girl needs a set of stud earrings, whether it is set in gold or silver and regardless of the type of precious gemstones. Studs come in all shapes and sizes, but we prefer the traditional round studs that are of medium size. Round medium studs can be worn with nearly any outfit. We love stud earrings because they can be worn with both formal and casual attire. Go ahead, wear them with jeans or a fancy gown.
If you’re going to invest in one type of earring, we recommend diamond earrings. Diamonds never go out of style and can be worn to nearly any formal event. Diamonds can also enhance a simple or casual outfit. Some of the best diamonds earrings can be found in vintage and estate jewellery collections.
