8 classic earrings you’ll want in your jewellery collection

Whether you favour minimal or more maximalist touches, a fantastic pair of earrings will always add a twist of refinement to your look. Of course, there are plenty of picks to choose from. However, only a select few come with the prestige and timelessness that hint at your social statuses, such as the famed Anoushka pearl earrings or Tiffany & Co.’s T Hoop earrings. To help you out, here are eight of our favourites that will never go out of style.


Shine bright

Inspired by the richness of a holly wreath, the Winston Cluster earrings by Harry Winston are the epitome of enduring splendour and unrivalled style. Pear-shaped and marquise-cut diamonds make up this stunning pair—suited for those who cherish the “less is more” aesthetic. Alternatively, the De Beers Enchanted Lotus earrings are a great choice. A round brilliant diamond sits in the centre of the understated pair while being surrounded by delicate rows of micro pavé diamonds arranged in the shape of petals which provide an air of purity and eternity to its wearer.

Queen of gems

Pearl earrings, similar to a sensual little black dress, are timeless, and Anoushka’s gold and diamond pearl earrings are arguably among the best on the market. It comes with detachable gleaming Baroque pearl strung from hoop earrings that are adorned with 26 sparkling brown diamonds, making it an eye-catching conversation starter. Aside from that, the Ara hoops pair by Spinelli Kilcollin are also an excellent pick. These earrings are hand cast in 18-karat gold and feature a gorgeous Japanese Akoya pearl suspended from three delicate tiny rings.

Sweet and simple

The Tiffany T T1 hoop earrings have a simple design with larger, bolder accents and dimensions, making them the best pick if you are attempting to play it safe. Whether worn alone or stacked next to stud earrings, these 18k rose gold hoops are the perfect finishing touch with a bevelled edge that highlights its striking profile. Another terrific go-to classic is the Braided Huggies by Anita Ko. Thanks to its chunky and woven design, these Huggies are easily matched with a variety of looks, both day and night.

Colourful glimmer

A pop of colour on your ears is always a good idea, and coloured gemstones might be just what you are looking for. You’ll regal with the Van Cleef & Arpels Sweet Alhambra ear studs in warmly lustrous 18k rose gold. The talismanic design radiates with finely set diamonds on the edge and a deep red carnelian that offers an opulent finish. Additionally, Shay’s effortlessly chic sapphire earrings are the way to go.
