Just like any area of the fashion industry, jewellery trends are always changing and evolving. Diamond earrings never go out of fashion, but their style and shape will certainly adapt to suit the latest runway styles. So how should you be wearing your earrings this season? And what type of diamond earrings is it worth investing in right now? Here are the three diamond earring trends you need to know about in 2019:
Oversized Drop Earrings
‘Bigger is better’ is this season’s mantra when it comes to diamond earrings. Oversized drop earrings with high sparkle aren’t just for big nights out and special occasions anymore, you can wear them to inject a high-end statement into your everyday wear too.
Whilst a long chain drop earring is simple yet effective, if you really want to turn heads then pick something a little more elaborate, such as a marquise shaped drop earring with extensive fret work. Earrings that combine stones in a mix of different shapes and sizes will create interest and work together to capture the light, whether you’re wearing them in the day or at night.
Top Tip: Look for oversized earrings set into white gold or platinum, rather than yellow gold, if you want to make the stones look bigger and create a more streamlined effect.
Heart Shaped Earrings
2019 has seen a fashion revival of all things from the 1990s, and that includes heart prints on the catwalk and heart shaped jewellery. Heart shaped diamond earrings will make you feel nostalgic about your childhood and they are both fun and feminine.
The great thing about heart shaped jewellery is that it can take many forms. Think small and subtle studs, or oversized heart shaped multiple diamond earrings. The best thing about heart shape earrings is that, although they are having a fashion moment now, they are timeless enough that they will never really go out of fashion. You can invest in heart shaped diamond earrings now and wear them for a lifetime.
Top Tip: Heart shape diamond earrings make a great gift for many occasions. From wedding days to birthdays, valentine’s to anniversaries, they are the perfect way to show your love.
Classic Diamond Studs
Finally, if you want to invest in timeless diamond earrings that you can wear for any occasion, and that will last a lifetime, then classic diamond studs are the perfect choice.
Round or princess cut diamonds are the best choice for simple studs because of the way they both capture and reflect light. In fact, any diamond which has been cut to have more equal proportions is well suited to being worn as a stud diamond earring. Look for studs that are set into the metal that best matches the rest of your jewellery box: that way it will be easy to create a stylish, coordinated look.
Top Tip: Choose studs that fit and suit the shape of your ear lobe. The larger your ears, the bigger the diamond stud you can wear.
