5 Earrings You Can’t Be Without
Accessories are a vital part of any woman’s wardrobe. They make our outfits seem complete. A great pair of earrings can make even jeans and a t-shirt feel like a put together ensemble. Although every woman has different preferences when it comes to their rings, necklaces, and bracelets, most women agree that even though these jewelry pieces are often times preferred, earrings are a necessity.
Earrings have been a popular fixture throughout history. They began as a marking of social status and evolved into an accessory that anyone could wear. From simple and petite to oversized and bold, earrings are created in any size, shape, and color imaginable. They change with the times, much like our clothing and are fun pieces of jewelry that relay our style preference. Even though everyone has different style tastes there are a few pairs of earrings that you must have.
Studs- These petite earrings are classy and their understated elegance is perfect for the workplace.
Diamonds- Who doesn’t love diamonds? Wearing a simple pair of diamond solitaire studs will add a polished appearance to an outfit. If you can’t afford real diamonds, don’t worry there are many faux crystals that appear realistic.
Pearls- As a staple of fashion for hundreds of years pearls have been a sophisticated and elegant gem. Although pearls are really made of calcium carbonate, much like a shell, they are considered a gemstone. Since pearls are rare they are expensive. Purchase faux or imitation pearls for the classy look at a fraction of the price.
Drop- These hanging earrings are produced with various materials and range from elegant to casual.
Feather- Feathers are in style, that much we are sure of. So don a pair of feather earrings to give your outfit a tribal feel. Natural feathers such as ostrich, pheasant and peacock feathers are among the most popular in jewelry making, however craft feathers, rooster feathers and metallic feather prints are also popular.
Jewels- Drop earrings with a single oversized jewel such as a ruby or emerald are extremely expensive and a favorite of very wealthy women. Diamonds, crystals, pearls, and faux rhinestones are among popular embellishments on earrings and depending on the material can have a huge impact on their price.
Geometric- Any fun shapes such as stars, squares, triangles and circular earrings fit into the geometric category. Many of these earrings are reflective of the styles of jewelry of the 1980’s. Often these earrings come in metals and solid colors. Add a pair of these earrings to incorporate a splash of fun to your outfit.
