7 Earring Trends That Will Take Your Jewelry Game to a Whole New Level
Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but when it comes to jewelry, everyone has their own personal preference. However, if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that no outfit will ever truly be complete without it. After all, as the late designer Yves Saint Laurent once put it, "Accessories are what, in my opinion, pull the whole look together and make it unique."
While the past few years might have been all about layering necklaces, 2019 will undoubtedly be the time when earrings take over our jewelry boxes. From sculptural pieces to celebrity-approved gold hoops, stylish mismatched pairs, delicate drop earrings, and shells that extend way beyond your Summer vacation, this year's biggest trends will bring both playfulness and glamour to your everyday looks.
Whether you're into blinding pieces that do all the talking, or, like Meghan Markle, have a preference for more delicate and meaningful jewels that you plan on wearing over and over again, you're sure to find something that you love among this year's earring trends.
