Updated September 2018
The hunt for fabulous silver earrings can be a trying one. Gold and colorful baubles have been leading the fashion-forward jewelry charge for some time. This leaves those craving the bright delight of a silver statement earring with a scanty supply involving rhinestone covered hoo-ha that is too dressy, too cheesy, or both. To expedite the search for more amazing choices, here are the best statement-making silver earrings that I have put on my clients recently. . .
Nadri Neo Geo Drop Earrings
These crystal-encrusted Nadri Neo Geo Drop Earrings are surprisingly versatile and super lightweight. Pair them with jeans and a blouse or with a cocktail dress.
Nadri Neo Geo Hoop Earrings
The Nadri Neo Geo Hoop Earrings work like a statement stud earring, which will ensure them a spot in your regular jewelry schedule. You can pair them with a necklace or wear them on their own. I love the way they always face forward, unlike a standard hoop earring, which can twist or disappear. And guess what? They are also lightweight.
Ippolita Classico Long Half Wavy Disc Earrings
The softly curved, contemporary style of the Ippolita Classico Long Half Wavy Disc Earrings is gorgeous for a night out. They also work for day if you are a bold sort. These earrings are available at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus.
Nordstrom Pavé Circle Linear Drop Earrings
The Nordstrom Pavé Circle Linear Drop Earrings are my favorite silver earrings right now. I cannot stop wearing them. I love the way they show up when your hair is down.
Lana Jewelry Openwork Drop Earrings
A sculptural display of balance and proportion, the Lana Jewelry Openwork Drop Earrings are super light and the perfect size. They look large in the image, but they are only about 1.5 inches long.
David Yurman Continuance Triple Drop Earrings
These David Yurman Continuance Triple Drop Earrings are the heaviest earrings on the list, so I recommend these for women who don’t mind “feeling” their earrings. They are not too heavy though. To compare, the other earrings listed are so light you completely forget you are wearing them once you put them on. They are available at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdale’s.
Freida Rothman Radiance Delicate Hoop Earrings
These Freida Rothman Radiance Delicate Hoop Earrings are perfection. Every other standard silver hoop wilts in the face of these sparkly babies. They are lightweight, chic, and work for both everyday and a statement look. Try the York Bracelet for a complete look.
Meadowlark Small Wildflower Stud Earrings
I absolutely adore these Meadowlark Small Wildflower Stud Earrings. They pop beautifully in the ear, despite being studs. They also sit pertly in the ear, instead of sagging like other statement stud earrings.
Meadowlark Bluebell Drop Earring
If you are feeling edgy, add this Meadowlark Bluebell Drop Earring to your shopping cart and pair it with one of the Meadowlark stud earrings above. The metal matches perfectly to create that flawless drama of an asymmetrical look.
Meadowlark Revival Medium Hoop Earrings
Argento Vivo Front Hoop Earrings
Like all the items on this list, these Argento Vivo Front Hoop Earrings are lightweight and fabulous. The thing I love most about the earring is that it sits perfectly forward. Many of my clients have issues with hoops due to an awkward piercing angle or hair pushing the earring around. These babies are immune to such things. Pair with the Bar Station Bracelet to complement the earrings.
Lele Sadoughi Crystal Palm Grass Earrings
I will be wearing these Lele Sadoughi Crystal Palm Grass Earrings on New Year’s Eve. I love the sparkly dangle without being stereotypically dressy.
Monica Vinader Siren Semiprecious Stone Drop Earrings
These Monica Vinader Siren Semiprecious Stone Drop Earrings are sexy little angels for everyday use or a night out. The lavender stone really compliments the silver setting.
Lana Jewelry Circle Post Linear Chain Drop Earrings
Dramatic and delicate, the Lana Jewelry Circle Post Linear Chain Drop Earrings start with a hoop and finish with a flowing chain link that reaches for your shoulders. They are fabulously lightweight and sit nicely in your hair.
Karine Sultan Linear Silver Earrings
These Karine Sultan Linear Earrings are for those who want to make a statement, quietly. They look best on petite women with less voluminous hair. Pair them with the adjustable Angelique ring in silver to finish the look.
Ippolita Rock Candy Silver Four-Stone Hoop Earrings
Ippolita has always made beautiful silver earrings and the Wonderland Rock Candy Four-Stone hoop is my favorite. I love how it can be dressed up or down. Pair it with the Glamazon squiggle ring and the Rock Candy three-stone ring. Put each ring on a different hand, or place them next to each other. Top it all off with one or a few Ippolita skinny hammered bangles.
Argento Vivo Modern Organic Asymmetrical Drop Earrings
These Argento Vivo Modern Organic Asymmetrical Drop Earrings are wonderfully unique and insanely lightweight. I was truly surprised by their barely-there presence.
