This year has been all about statement pieces in your ears. But, saying just that is a pretty broad. So, let’s break it down to the top earring trends for 2018trends we’re sure will continue to be enjoyed well into 2019.

While this year’s runways have seen abstract shapes using over-the top drop earrings and bent metals, indie jewellery has also made it high up on the trending list. This really pushes some unique takes on what is usually a subtle category.

I think it’ll be safe to say the 80s and 90s have properly made a comeback this year!

So, what makes it onto the list of trendy earrings from the reliable Silver By Mail ?

Read on to find out.

Studs are an all-time favourite for most women. They’re mainly preferred by those who like a minimal look, too. Studs come in a host of different precious stones, with the quality and size of the stone determining the price of the earrings. If you’re going for an elegant and classic look, studs are still the way to go.


  1. Hoops

Hoops first soared to popularity in the 1960s. But, today they offer a retro effect for your overall look. Being circular, hoops can complement your cheekbones and jaw line perfectly, better defining your facial features even without the need for makeup!


  1. Drop earrings

Drop earrings tend to drop just below the ear lobes, making them a great choice for casual or festive occasions. Drop earrings may have beads, charms or gemstones attached directly from the base, making them fun.


  1. Have fun with dangling earrings

Dangling earrings are fairly similar to drop earrings, but they usually move a little more freely. Dangling earrings can be attached to your wear through a small wire connected to a hook that sits at the back of your ear. They come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and designs.


  1. Huggie earrings

These earrings are like their name – they look as though they’re hugging your ear lobes. The earrings consist of a hinge at the top, allowing them to open into two halves. Huggies are usually smaller but look beautiful, and also come in an array of sizes. You can find huggies with pearls, sapphires and a range of other precious stones.


  1. Moon shaped earrings

Balis, or chand balis, are perfect for formal occasions. They’re typically crafted with crystals, stones or pearls and work well with ethnic looks.


  1. Clip earrings

Clip-on earrings are clipped onto the outside of the earlobe instead of being inserted into a pierced hole. They’re an ideal choice if your ears aren’t pierced and come in a host of different sizes, shapes and backing options.


  1. Ear chains

Finally, ear chains remain a popular option. These earrings extend up to the cartilage with the cartilage needing to be pierced. They’re a cool, all-ear look ideal for casual occasions.



Arguably, earrings are the most versatile piece of jewellery, with a design for every outfit or occasion. I can’t wait to see what makes next year’s popularity list!


  1. I love all of these! I’m obsessed with statement earrings but my ears are so sensitive so I can never wear anything too heavy. Love all of these!


  2. I never thought I would be so excited that hoops are back, but I am! I remember people being so AGAINST hoops when I was a freshman and sophomore in college and now they’re back. I also really love the tortoiseshell hoops that a lot of people are wearing right now – they are my favorite earrings for the fall!
