Six Essential Earrings Every Woman Should Own

There are certain essentials a woman must own if she loves jewelry and that includes a rotation of earrings. Not only do they light up the face and maybe detract from some crow’s feet that perhaps only you notice but they elevate different outfits and create different looks depending on the style and the occasion you are wearing them for. They are also great gifts since you don’t have to know the size of a finger or the length of a necklaces a friend or loved one wears around their neck. You just basically have to know their style. Earrings have been going strong for a while now—due to woman of every age getting multiple piercing to be on trend and because it’s a great look that you can wear now and if you ever tire of it, you can wear less of a layered look. They are also getting attention because of WFH Zoom meeting as they are the one jewelry item you will definitely see. You can also wear certain pairs to the office if you are back at work and certain styles won’t get in the way of your mask instead it will lift your spirits and allow some of your personality to shine through.

Here are six styles that we feel are essential to every woman’s wardrobe:

Hoops—they circle in and out of fashion but it seems like for the past five years due to tis style being a favorite of celebrities such as Beyoncé, J. Lo and showing up on the red carpet on A-list movie stars, they seem to be here to stay this time. We prefer a medium diameter as they can be worn with just about anything. We also favor tactile styles or texture mixed with diamonds but we would not turn our nose up at a pair of simple diamond thin hoops.

Huggies—another style that comes and goes but with the Ear Party being so strong, women of every age group are clamoring for chic minimalistic or bring on the bling huggies.

Stilettos or Linear Styles—sophisticated or edgy, these styles can go with a business suit or a leather jacket white shirt and jeans or an LBD. They look best with a little movement but a static pair creates a streamlined look that will feel lightweight in your lobe if they hang from posts.

Studs—every girl needs a good stud, earring that is. Whether it’s your classic round diamond, halo diamonds or more motif driven styles, these are the type you might wear in your first hole or in your second or third. Whatever the case, they are the type you can wear from morning to night and you might even forget to take them out before you go to sleep which gives you a reason to wear them the next day again. Just make sure the posts are on tight.

Single Drops- A classic through the centuries of women wearing earrings. They were once called dormeuse earrings started out as single old mine, cushion cut or rose cut diamonds or colored gemstones in a crown-style setting and were often worn to bed to keep the earlobe hole from closing during the mourning period of Queen Victoria, This design offered a pretty delicate look popular today among all generations of women. These days they also act as the perfect styles for second and third holes in multiple piercings. An idea would be to wear a longer pendant drop, a double drop and then a single sleeper if you prefer wire earrings to posts and hoops.

Pendant Earrings—first called Pendeloque in the Georgian Era with flourishes of center bows a top and bottom drop, but eventually, they evolved into pendant earrings, which could be extremely lightweight and either inspired by the antique styles or modernized with a gemstone top and a pear shaped gemstone drop. Today we are seeing pendant earrings with a variety of cuts of colored gemstones in settings that range from prong to bezel or those with pave surrounds. They are easy to wear and versatile enough to work with any outfit when you are rushing to get out of the house.
