6th Aug 2015

When it comes to jewellery, whoever said that less is more?! This season’s top lust-list accessories are all about bold pieces, fun motifs, and mixing up high-culture with low-end references for a witty take on the statement earring. With everything from sophisticated gold and agate pieces to, um, crocheted metallic palm trees, there’s a statement earring that’ll fit your look, no matter what your day-to-day staple style is.

Worried you’re a shrinking violet without the fashion klout to pull off a set of loud ear-dangling jewels? Pfft. Ditch the ‘it’ bags and must-have boots and get yourself a pair of these killer earrings, pronto.

#1 Crazy In The Coconut

Snappily titled the Cocoloko Pearly Palm earrings, these scream good times and tropical vibes. The ideal pair of earrings for tying together that Palm Springs beach look you’ll be rocking come summer. Note: Drinking pina coladas is obligatory when you’ve got these babies on. Thank YOU, Lucy Folk!

#5 Futuristic Flora

W-O-W. Dinosaur Designs does it again with these show-stopping metal and resin earrings that bring retro-futurism back. Tee these up with a 60s shift dress and some metallic heels and you have yourself one hell of a party look!

Available at Dinosaur Designs and online.

#3 Sophisticated Statement

These Mania Mania Underground earrings make a memorable impression without blinding the person standing next to you. The only acceptable way to wear an earcuff this season.

Available from Green With Envy and online.

#4 Jewelled Tropics

If you’re looking for something light and summery to lift your mood, these Carolina Barbieri gold and gemstone hoop earrings from Zimmermann are just the trick. Ideal with a silk headscarf, some massive sunnies and an unnervingly even tan.

Available from Zimmermann and online.

#5 Stone & Wood

Limedrop’s marbled drop earrings combine the incredibly rich hues of rosewood with synthetic resin for a classic statement piece. Lucky long-necked Listers, these will look EPIC on you.

Available from The Grand Social online.

#6 Two-Stoned Beauties

Melbourne duo Aacute’s polymer pieces all appear to be crafted out of meteor rocks, fallen from far-away planets. These dynamic drops are great with classic denim and a white cotton shirt—the perfect daytime statement gems.

Available from Edition X online.

#7 Exotic Rocks

Sydney favourite Elke Kramer makes the most incredible resin and metal jewellery, and these Tempest earrings in ‘moonstruck monsoon’ (best name for a colourway, ever) are no exception. We can bet these will look stunning when paired with warm hair tones. 

Available from Elke Kramer online. 

#8 Memphis Madness

Looking like something produced by the Memphis Group in the 80s (if you don’t know them, look them up… all the colour and pattern you could dream of!), Gorman’s ‘wig wam’ earrings turn the fun up to eleven. Seriously, once you put these on, you’ll never want to take them off.

Available at Gorman and online.
