You'd be hard pressed to find a woman under 50 who doesn't have their ears pierced, and earrings can be a great way to show off your style, accessorise an outfit or brighten up dull office wear.
Not all earrings are equal though, and who you are says a lot about the type of earring that's right for you. If your style is understated and simple, and you have a preppy dress sense, studs will likely go with more of your outfits.
Meanwhile, those with a more extravagant disposition (and dress sense) might find that long dangly earrings are more up their street. Gold or silver, stones or detailing - there are plenty of ways to make sure your earrings are as individual as you.
Choose British contemporary jewellery designers to support the flourishing industry of local artisans that we have in this country - and you'll find that there are plenty of options to suit all sartorial tastes!
Check out Daisy jewellery for some simple silver daisy studs; they're low key enough for the office, but would look equally pretty with a dress and heels at a wedding or garden party. Silver jewellery is perfect for those who like to wear cool tones, matching well with blues and greens.
For some middle ground, take a look at Amanda Coleman jewellery, where you'll find a mixture of studs and small dangly earrings, including the beautiful Raven on Branch earrings. They're a cute way to add some interest to a casual outfit - you could throw them on for a lazy Sunday brunch!
If it's something really out-there you're looking for, you could check out Becky Crow jewellery. The bold designs and big earrings are a fantastic way to make a statement, whatever you're wearing!
