The 10 best party earrings

  • @R_Gonsalves

Statement baubles - whether chunky or dainty - are the ‘it’ accessory with the ability to make any outfit sparkle

1. Geometric gold


Bright and bold, these geometric shapes and poster-paint colours will stand out against either a dark or colourful outfit.

2. Gold tassels


The golden chains of this tasselled pair bring to mind a glass of fizzing champagne. The perfect choice for a New Year's Eve night out.

3. Black onyx

From £115,

Encased in 18-carat gold vermeil, this pair of black onyx earrings creates an impact for fans of minimal elegance.

4. Chain and jet

£295, Juan Carlos Obando,

Although the designer was inspired by climbing equipment, these chain links exude luxury.

5. Crystal gem stud, clip-ons


The warmth of gold-plate metal sets off the large green emerald-cut and white brilliant-cut Swarovski crystals on these studs.

6. Tribal spike antique silver

£200, Pamela Love,

The delicacy of the chain and patina of antique silver soften any edges on these chandelier earrings.

7. Triangle bead


These chandelier earrings boast beads of differing shapes and materials alongside a faceted stone and embossed metal setting.

8. Silver and black bomb drops


Ornate styles may get lost if you wear your hair down but this pair shines through elegantly. And they look more expensive than they are.

9. "Fifi"


This elegant pair of art deco-inspired earrings is made of 22-carat gold-plated silver, ethically processed from American mines.

10. Gold circular gem studs


The delicate concentric crystal setting on this pair is all the more feminine for the fact that equally fine ribbon is intertwined.
