Popular earrings | overview

Overview:

Maximalist Earrings

For the last few years, people have been gravitating toward smaller and daintier styles when it comes to earrings. Think subtle yet playful stud earrings and understated diamond earrings that provide only a hint of sparkle. That has all but changed in 2024 with the mantra very much being the bigger, the better. Naturally, many jewellery brands have jumped on this bandwagon the same way they got into the daintier pieces a few years ago, producing everything from stud earrings that are the size of 20-cent coins and colourful drop earrings that will immediately make you feel like the centre of attention, to enamel clip-on earrings that a reminiscent of the ones worn by your great aunt and even trendy jacket earrings that will add an element of edginess to your look. Hoop earrings are also getting bigger and bigger with some style stars rocking pairs that at a width that would put Diana Ross, the queen of disco to shame.

Another popular earring choice that has been influenced by the runways of Paris and Milan or the glossy pages of fashion mags is stackable earrings. A favourite among the likes of Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Kylie Jenner, an earring stack is a subtle yet stylish way to add a little edge to your look. If you have multiple ear piercings on the same lobe, earring stacks are a cost-effective way to change up your jewellery without actually investing in new jewellery, as you can essentially work with the pieces you already have. Keep it simple with a two or three earring stack featuring hoops and studs, or make a statement with tiny diamond stud earrings going all the way up your ear. Earring stacks are a great way to have some fun with your accessories, however, it is a good idea to keep it consistent when picking out the pieces you wear. With that said, daintier styles of gold earrings are a popular choice for earring stacks in 2024, as they add warmth to your look.

Gold Huggie Earrings

Fashion and jewellery can be so heavily influenced by the past that many trends are just new alternations of what was popular at a particular moment in history, and the same goes for earrings. From mini skirts and platformed shoesto baggy denim and petite tops, fashion in 2022 is very much a homage to eras like the 1960s, the late-90s and the early noughties. So, it only makes sense that huggie earrings would make a long-awaited comeback as one of the most popular earring choices for 2024. A more pared-back version of the classic hoop, huggie earrings are earrings that “hug” your lobe with a shorter hoop rather than loop through it as a hoop does. A favourite for Meghan Markle, Selena Gomez and Dua Lipa, huggie earrings are back in a big way this year. Especially, gold huggie earrings, that bring a lot of vibrance to your look, particularly in an era where many of our faces a hidden behind a face mask. Many huggies will incorporate a bit of sparkle with diamonds and cubic zirconia adornments, while others will have gemstones to add a bit of colour.

With maximalist jewellery having somewhat of a moment in 2024, it only makes sense that rainbow jewellery would be all the rage this year. Particularly, vibrant coloured gemstone earrings. Earrings adorned with gemstones are not only a great subtle way of adding some colour to your look, but they will also help bring a slightly more personal touch to your look. Gemstones can have all sorts of very personal meanings to someone, especially if said gemstone is their birthstone or a person close to them’s birthstone. But that is not to say you should have to choose a specific pair of gemstone earrings just because they feature your birthstone. You can keep it contemporary with some of the more well-known coloured stones such as emerald earrings, sapphire earrings or ruby earrings. Opt for a pastel hue with blushing morganite earrings, flirty amethyst earrings or ocean-like aquamarine earrings. Alternatively, you can add a little edge to your look with some of the more unconventional stones such as opals and pearls that can come in all sorts of radiant hues which can complement your outfit.
