The Year Of The Statement Earring +15 Of My Faves!


Pom Pom Earrings

I’m going out on a limb here and calling statement earrings the jewelry/flair trend of 2017. I’ve seen SO many good ones come out in the last couple weeks and as a girl who doesn’t usually wear earrings, I’m gonna need to make a major lifestyle change because these are too good to pass up. Here are 15 of my fave colorful and crazy ones to check out!

    I LOVEEEE these round-up posts where you post your favorite items of a category, because you have such great taste and I always like finding new shops/designers.

    I forgot to write that in the survey so I thought Id share now :D.

    <3 #6 & #9. So cute!

    • Kelly

      Thanks Carolina! I think I’ll be doing more round-up posts in the future, a few of you seem to really like them!!

    Regarding earring that will not bother your sensitive ears, the cheapest route to go is always stainless steel. However, sterling silver posts or hooks should also be less irritating. Of course, pure precious metals like fine silver and solid gold would be the best, but these are not necessarily the best choices for earrings. (Plus, they aren’t as practical, given the extra cost. Finally, another choice which I have not tried personally are Niobium hooks. They are very price effective and I have heard some with very sensitive ears swear by them. All of these options are available if you are making your own earrings. If you are buying earrings from a maker, always inquire if they have any options for sensitive ears. Commercially, of course, stainless steel post and hooks are the most affordable and readily available- they will usually be labeled as “stainless steel.”

      SO MUCH useful information! Thanks girl, I’ll look into all of these!

      I’ve got fairly sensitive skin and I’m usually okay if I clean the earrings in hot salty water first, then coat the posts and everywhere that touches my skin with clear nail polish and leave it to dry. And I usually put a little bit of neosporin/antibiotic ointment on the post before I put it in my ear, to maximize the barrier between metal and my skin. Antihistamine/hydrocortisone cream would probably be good too!

      I too have sensitive ears and what I do is just switch the hooks for sterling silver ones using pliers. You can buy them in bulk on ebay which are cost effective and won’t break the bank. I can’t wear stainless steel and gold just doesn’t suit me at all so I tend to always buy sterling silver earrings if I can πŸ™‚

    Yes, these posts are great – and inspirational!
    I love the donut ones (and this etsy shop seems to have loads of great stuff!)
    Thank you πŸ™‚

    • Kelly

      Aw thanks! So glad you like them!

      I LOVE those donut ones, basically me in earring form! 😜

    AHHHHHHHHHHH!!! I’m cursing you (in a joking way) for this post right now. I’m earring obssessed–I think I bought three or four new pairs in December…. and I got three or four MORE pairs as gifts!!! Therefore, I’m not allowing myself to buy any more earrings… in January. πŸ˜‰

    Side note: I almost bought the stuff to make your confetti ones (obsessed) yesterday, but then I rememebered–no earrings! So, that will be in February!

    Otherwise, great post! πŸ˜‰

    • Kelly

      I definitely won’t tell you to break your no-spend month, BUT in you should definitely splurge a little in February! πŸ™ƒ

  • Amanda

    A trick that my sister and I do is to dip the post of the earring in neosporin (or something similar, maybe vaseline would work?) right before putting it on. I think it creates a barrier and maybe just adds a little extra moisture that keeps the ear happy. I also try to only wear non-gold earrings every other day (not two days in a row) to let my ears rest πŸ™‚

  • Michelle

    The Pink Tassel Earrings are my absolute favorites, although the bananas are pretty cool as well!

  • Kristina B

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE my pom earrings and I wish I could wear them all the time!!
    The other day I was wearing them, and my husband was horsing around on the sofa and I yelled at him “WATCH THE POM POMS!!!!”

  • Catherine

    Truthfully, earrings are the only kind of jewelry I can wear because I fidget too much with bracelets and necklaces. YES YES YES to all of these! Love the roundup!

  • Sophie

    The fuzzy ball earrings are amzing.

  • Dianne Rawson
