Posted by for Fashion

From tassels to hoops and pearls, these statement earrings are perfect for everyday winter wear.

If your lobes could do with some extra love, scroll down for a selection of bestselling earrings from The Drop by Stylist – our marketplace to shop from the most brilliant and burgeoning small businesses across the UK.

Scroll down to see which of the 18 pairs will end up on your ears next time you’re headed out for dinner, drinks or headed into the office…

  • Ninemoo marbling moon earrings

    The Drop: Ninemoo Store marbeling moon earrings

    Thanks to a certain Marine Serre patterned top worn by everyone from Beyoncé to Dua Lipa, all things moon-related are at the top of our sartorial wishlists. Happily, London-based lifestyle label Ninemoo has just the accessory to fill the crescent-shaped void, with its marbling moon earrings.

    Made from 14k gold-plated brass and resin, the marble-effect earrings are a great option for when your ear party is crying out for a lowkey pop of colour – available in olive, cream and mustard, the off-kilter shades make them look way more expensive than they are, and we’re not mad about it.

  • My Doris beaded lightning studs in gold and silver

    My Doris Silver Beaded Lightening Studs

    Maybe it’s because they remind us of David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust era, but we do love lightning bolts. Katie Williamson, the founder of Suffolk-based brand My Doris, is big on vintage-inspired jewellery – and these earrings are particularly lovely.

    Available in gold or silver beading, the studs have a punky yet glamorously retro feel. Ethically made in family-run workshops in India, they’ll add the perfect finishing touch to your favourite block-colour sweater or Ganni dresses.

    Whether it’s moons, stars or zodiac signs, the trend for celestial jewellery is going nowhere in 2022, this pair of 18k gold-plated mini-hoops features a north star charm worthy of any astronomy fan. But, it’s the glittering black cubic zirconia detailing that’s won us over. 

    Designed and handmade by Formation Co’s founder, Kerry, in her East London studio, this pair is perfect for when you’re looking for something dressy, yet subtle.

    For those who have a penchant for ear stacking, we’ve got the perfect piece to add to your collection: Chalk’s angel wing earrings. “Reminiscent of the angel wings worn by Claire Danes in Baz Luhrman’s Romeo + Juliet, it was love at first sight when I saw these laser-cut acrylic earrings,” says The Drop’s editor Gemma Crisp.

    Each pair is handmade by founder Malaika in her London-based design studio. She also happens to be an architect so her attention to detail is unmatched – especially when it comes to the intricate detailing. Available in gold and silver, the studs can be worn in a variety of positions depending on which piercing you prefer. Think Dua Lipa or Ashley Graham levels of ear stacking.
