Statement-y earrings that also aren’t too much

6

I usually like my jewelry to be on the delicate and understated side, but lately, I’ve been growing increasingly attracted to pieces—earrings in particular—that are on the bigger side: earrings that say look at me, but at the same time don’t scream it. And I’m crazy for this pair—click through to see it in living color—with red glass stones and cultured pearls.

These beaded hoops are the type of thing you could put on with your most boring outfit, and suddenly it wouldn’t be so boring anymore.

These are just so elegant—I’d wear them with my hair up in a twist.

I like that these have a kind of irregular oval shape.

This pair manages to be statement-y and delicate at once, which is a cool trick.

This woven straw pair is just so excellently summery.

I dig that this labradorite pair does not exactly match.

    I love the delicate/tough ones! So intriguing. My fear is that I’ll become one of those old ladies with big saggy ear lobes from wearing heavy earrings. Irrational?

    Late to the party and missed out on the Assembly ones. They are just about perfect!

    I’m leaning toward statement-y as well but for me it’s mostly just meant hoops that are bigger than “tiny.” Love those labradorite ones!

    I have straw earrings like that, but — masks.

    I just got these Mini Medusa earrings from Meesha Farzenah and I LOVE them. Not heavy, and they make me feel fierce. I like the Desert Goddess Dangles as well, but I had to have these.

    Sorry, late to the party for comments. Last fall/winter whenever on I WANT TO BE HER Andrea posted some spectacular grand earrings which I purchased and love and wear when I Zoom or a planned FaceTime. Statement earrings for an hour long Zoom won’t bog down your earlobes and give some visual interest even if you’re just wearing a white tee. So, yes, not great with masks, but great for Zoom and for post-Pandemic assuming there will be a post-Pandemic. (sigh)
