What Makes The One Earring Style So Fresh Right Now

New season, new jewellery trend? It would sure seem so, except this one is not a fully formed trend - rather, an inclination towards more freedom in styling jewellery or towards new ways or wearing pieces you already own.

So note this: you won’t be seeing the single earring mini-trend bubbling up just everywhere on Instagram. (Not yet, anyway.) However, if you keep an eye on your favourite celebrities or influencers, you might just spot it every now and again, discreetly accompanying looks that were made to be photographed. And what better way to be ahead of the curve than to take this concept and run with it?

Ahead, we’re taking a closer look at how wearing one earring could guide your style choices this summer.

Business Casual Jewellery, Explained

Whether it’s clearly mandated or unspoken, most working spaces require you to adhere to a dress code. But this is in no way a styling setback. Because the more restrictive the code, the more mental space you have for expressing your personality through jewellery.

Once you’ve curated your jewellery wardrobe, use this question as a guiding principle: who are you meeting today? Clients, colleagues or outside friends?

Let’s look at these environments one by one…

Business Casual Jewellery: Meeting Clients

If your work requires considerable face time with your company’s clients or business partners, you’ll want to position yourself as an expert they can trust. Jewellery is brilliant for this, since earrings and necklaces highlight your face, drawing attention to your expression and to what you have to say.

For maximum credibility, you’ll need to select balanced pieces that are neither under-, nor overwhelming. More specifically, pendant necklaces, precious gemstones and drop earrings are perfectly positioned between dainty and statement.

Business Casual Jewellery: Meeting Coworkers

In a crowded office environment, the keyword is collaboration. This is not the context to put yourself in the spotlight, but rather to relate to your colleagues or employees and be part of the conversation.

Wearing something bright, dainty and colourful will help you be perceived as open, approachable and engaging. Consider a fine bracelet made of rose gold or an assortment of stackable rings.

Business Casual Jewellery: Meeting Friends

Are you an artist, a digital nomad or a solopreneur? Whenever you work alone, your dress code is self-imposed and certainly biased towards comfort. It has to be, because nothing should ever break your focus.

So when you’re going out on a lunch break with your spouse or for some after-hour drinks with your friends, you’ll want to truly shine and enjoy your time off the clock. You can achieve this by wearing (even more) jewellery. Don’t hold back and put on your favourite statement pieces, the ones that express your personal style unapologetically.

And if you’re operating from a studio or from a coworking space and you don’t have time to dash home to change your look, you could consider some transformable jewellery. They can successfully elevate your casual look with minimum hustle.

With summer just a couple of weeks away, this is the best time to make some fresh choices. If you curate your jewellery collection now, you’ll have a full range of pre-selected pieces that can take you from late-night partying to poolside lounging time and time again.

As hair becomes lighter, skin gets darker and jewellery shines brighter, this is the season to go wilder with your style choices. Imagine pieces that move like, feel like and fully reflect the spirit of summer: wild, free and luxurious.

Here’s what we mean…

What DOES Statement Jewellery Actually Mean?

Ever wondered what the “statement” part in statement jewellery actually means? Here is a short and quick guide to help you decide.

The rule of thumb is that, if the first thing people notice about you is your jewellery, then it most definitely is a statement piece. For example, a large and intricate necklace worn with bare shoulders creates a visual impact that’s instantly registered by those around you. Likewise, a bright red cocktail ring worn with a white power suit will prompt covert glances that you’ll pick up smilingly.

In short, statement is the opposite of subtle. It is colourful, large or decidedly intricate and it’s the most curated, tasteful and effortless way of staying in the spotlight.

Making The Case For Interchangeable Earring Charms: 5 Reasons They Work So Well

Diamond Earring Pendant

Change the pendant on a dainty chain and it looks like you’re wearing a new necklace every time.

It simply makes sense to keep the supporting piece in place and switch up the decorative part again and again.

With this in mind, we created a series of interchangeable charms that can bring this remarkable versatility to your ears as well.

Angel and Little Chilli Gold Closed Hoops

Here are the reasons why interchangeable earring charms work so well:

1) Maximum stylistic freedom. You can mix and match the pendants however you want, even wear them asymmetrically: a colourful one in one ear and a diamond in the other. Or really commit to the asymmetry and add a pendant on one side, while wearing just the loop on the other!


2) Comprehensive personal style. Given their small form factor and their convenient pricing, it is feasible to curate a varied personal collection that you can cycle through. Have some charms on daily or weekly rotation and keep others exclusively for special occasions.

 

3) Fully practical. With their small form factor, interchangeable charms maintain all the practicality of their closed loop supports, keeping them suitable for everyday wear. They won’t get in the way when you rush out to a business lunch and your hair won’t get tangled in them, even if you wear it down.

 

4) Discretion when you want it. Small earrings are worn not only for practicality, but also for discretion. With the added charms, you’ll still be able to slip under the radar when you want to keep a low profile and focus on what you’re doing. But the moment you engage in conversation with another person and access their full attention, your personal style will register clearly.


5) They’re fun. A big part of wearing jewellery is how special some pieces can become, how much significance they can carry. The more you love them, the more you'll wear them and the less time they’re cast away, collecting dust on your nightstand. With their playful dimension, putting on your interchangeable earring charms will doubtlessly become one of those fun and mindful moments before you start a new day.
