A woman’s face gets defined when she adorns a pair of designer earrings matching her dress and her personality. We are sure your bauble box has several earrings but there are some classic and must-have styles of earrings along with the trending designs which you must own. We have handpicked a few of them for you along with ways in which you can style them with different outfits to create a gorgeous look.
A classic piece but not at all boring, studs are an earring that does not dangle from the earlobe but sticks to your ears. You can have studs embedded with cubic zirconia, precious or semi-precious stones, pearls or simply crafted out of an alloy. Studs look elegant with sarees when they are ornate and look elegant when a smaller design is paired with formal pants. They are one of the most versatile kinds of earrings designs. Women with an oval face or whose cheekbones are broader than their chin look great with studs.
Imagine a big bangle hanging from your ears. It is one of the best ways to describe a hoop earring. They can be as small to fit your little finger or bigger than the diameter of your wrist. Hoop earrings come in many designs and sizes and just like studs; you can pair them with an Anarkali with the same ease as you would with jeans. Avoid if you have a round face.
Danglers hang from your earrings and can be both ethnic and western. Ethnic or traditional danglers have pearls, kundan, zircon, American Diamond, polki or meenakari work while western designs are metallic or studded with zircon. Danglers are slightly different from their close cousin, the drop earrings as danglers are generally secured with a post and butterfly back. Drop earrings, on the other hand, have a long wire attachment which is curved and goes through the earlobe. Women with round faces get an illusion of a long face with danglers. A pointer you must keep in mind is that they do not look great with a high neck or turtle neck tops, blouses or sweaters as their beauty gets hidden by the high collar.
One of the main differences between a dangler and a chandelier earring is its width. Chandeliers fan out a little unlike danglers or drop earrings which seem to drop downward. Chandeliers look great with all kinds of dresses, be it ethnic or western. Although chandeliers are dangly earrings, they are a little higher on the glitz quotient. Square face and round faces look nice with any kind of dangly earrings.
There is a reason why we haven’t clubbed a Chandbali with dangler earrings and it is because Chandbali has its fan following. It can be matched with all kinds of traditional and ethnic wear be it a lehenga, a saree or a suit. It is a statement piece of jewelry and you can opt to do away with a neckpiece when wearing these. More often than not you would find amazing designs in a Chandbali in a combination of gold with kundan or polki. Colored pearl hangings add length to their round shape. If you are blessed with a long oval face, a Chandbali would be a good pick for you.
An ideal design of earrings to be paired with traditional Indian outfits, jhumkas and jhumkis lend an Indian touch. Where jhumkis are cute and dainty, jhumkas are the bolder version of it. A standard design jhumka has a stud part with an inverted umbrella hanging from it. You can have as many layers of these inverted domes as you want in jhumkas. Tiny pearls hanging from these jhumkas add to their beauty.
