Top 20 Stylish Earrings you Must Have in your Collection

Whether you are going for a party, outing, or attending a wedding, stylish earrings are inescapable!

You can go without hairpins or hairstyle but, definitely not without earrings. Open hair or tied hair, earrings are the cherry on the cake! We girls can never compromise with our beauty, especially when earrings add +1 to our looks. We can go with anything like, studs, jhumkas, baalis, hoops, danglers, climbers, etc, to match with our attire like a PRO!

And talking all about earrings, makes us miss about these famous songs that are made especially to honor the beauty they add to our looks – ‘’jhumka gira re bareilly ke bazar main’’ and “kaan main jhumka, chal main thumka, kamar pe choti latke, ho gya dil kaa purza purza lage pachasi jhatke’’ from old Bolly movies! It feels like these songs are also pushing us to revive the love for earrings forever.

Wearing earrings is seen long back from ancient times. The style of piercing keeps changing but the trend never goes off-site. The piercing in the ear lobe is valued very much in our Indian culture, as it is believed it brings financial stability and social status in the lives of females. Before looking for the most stylish designs, let’s find out what all types of earrings are there:

1. Studs

Studs are very classy and small to wear. They can be worn with any dress and looks cool. They are lightweight and easy to carry and make the look sober. They are placed directly on the earlobe and held with the fixture at the back. Widely used for your everyday looks.

2. Jhumkas

Jhumkas or Jhumkis are the most loveable type of earrings for Indian girls. This style is very famous in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. Mostly worn with Indian suits, sarees, or gowns. They make you look very ethnic and desi and are available in a variety of designs, colors, and sizes.

3. Baalis

Baalis took us down to memory lane as the first earring most of us wore as a toddler is the gold wire baali with a red pearl in it. They are very traditional in their appearance as we have a variety of designs in them. These days baalis comes with pearls, stones, beads, seashells, and plastic flowers. They are hanging in appearance and fill the face with grace. Baalis suit with Indian attire and western dresses too!

4. Danglers

Danglers are contemporary in looks and loosely swing and sway from ears. They look aesthetic with western wear and rock the party looks every time. Danglers are reasonable in price and nowadays come with diversified designs and colors.

5. Climbers

Climbers add extra shine in the looks if worn with a gown or one-piece dresses. The latest style of earrings is with stone studded on metallic surfaces or the designs on the metal itself. Crawlers or climbers are new and stylish earrings that don’t need multiple piercings. 

6. Hoops

Hoops are somewhat like Baalis but the size varies. They are a big circular band made of metals or other material. Hoops look cool with denim or any western dress. Nowadays we can see the variety of hoops with two or three layers in between. Even at Cannes, we can see the hoop going gorgeously with the dresses.  

7. Teardrop Earrings

These earrings themselves define the meaning in terms of their shape, they are especially studded with stones or kundan but like a teardrop. Usually makes you look elegant and rich.   

8. Statement Earrings

Very eye-catching in appearance and make the statement by the giant and bold looks. This is the reason why they are called statement earrings. They are bigger than the usual size and shape.

These are the types in which we have an immense variety of earrings – styles, shapes, sizes, colors, and designs.
