We are dedicated magpie dressers at The Collective Boutique - we are true believers that an outfit isn't finished without a flourish of jewellery! That said, day-to-day we love the minimal layering pieces of demi-fine jewellery brands like Amarilo and Ellie Air - but when it comes to party season, we are all about statement!
Statement earrings are great for the Christmas party season because unlike necklaces they go with any neckline and are a great way of adding festive sparkle, whilst eschewing the novelty jumper. Although fashion-led, they're not a one-hit wonder and will become a go-to signature that's guaranteed to add personality to any outfit.
Here are 5 of our favourites from our fashion-led independent designers, all £50 or less:
Jennifer Loiselle's tendril earrings (£32) (main pic) are the perfect 'neutral' if you've wearing a bold colour or busy print. The clear perspex tendril is inspired by Matisse's organic sea shapes and it's finished with a Swarovski pearl for a bit of shimmer. Great poking out through wavy hair.
Rosita Bonita's All Seeing Eye drop earrings (£36) are a great graphic statement and a nod to the hottest jewellery trend for all things mystical. They would look stunning styled with a sleek, minimal updo to keep these beauties centre stage.
For a completely different look that is equally 'eye-catching', these 'We See You' matte brass earrings from While Odin Sleeps (£52) are a beautiful minimal shape, making them fun yet utterly wearable, whatever your look.
If you're looking for something elegant, yet still with the wow factor - these beaded beauties from Sidai move beautifully with their delicate hand-beaded tassels. They're also super light-weight, so no sore ears after a long night!
The Sky earrings from Milk Tooth (£48) are one of our favourite 'go-to' earrings - whether it's to add a bit of polish to our jeans and leather jacket at weekends, or to toughen up a party dress. The blush pink, black and gold palette is actually really versatile - check out our Q&A interview with Milk Tooth designer, Ernestina on the journal.
