No matter the occasion, diamond drop earrings are the perfect jewelry accessories for dressing up any outfit. From everyday wear to formal events and even as bridal jewelry, drop earrings can flawlessly pull together and elevate any type of look.

In this article, we will go over a few ways you can wear drop earrings. We will also go over some different earring styles, and how you can incorporate them into wedding day traditions.

How To Wear Drop Earrings

When you think of drop earrings, you likely picture a classic style like these luxurious Pear Halo Leverback Earrings. They feature lab created pear-shaped center diamonds. The pear-shaped diamonds float delicately above a glimmering halo of smaller melee stones. They are a prime example of diamond drop earrings.

But if you are looking for something a little different, there are many other options out there.

Different Styles of Drop Earrings

Whether you’re shopping for a pair of earrings for yourself or as gifts for others, here are a few styles to consider:

Vidi Huggies

The Vidi Huggies are drop earrings that combine a small, classic diamond hoop with dangling oval-shaped diamonds. Available metals include 14k yellow gold, and white gold also. All of the diamonds in these earrings are lab grown, and they shine just as bright as natural diamonds.

Caligo Dangling Studs

If you love the bezel look, then our Caligo Dangling Studs are for you. These earrings contain 4 round diamonds totaling 1/2 carat and are available in 14k white gold and yellow gold.

They are small enough to be worn daily. Yet, despite their delicate size, they offer the ideal amount of movement and shine to catch the eye.

Drop Earrings for a Bride

Drop earrings are the quintessential bridal jewelry accessory. Because of this, we can’t discuss drop earrings without mentioning brides.

Many brides choose some type of diamond drop earrings to wear on their wedding day. This earring style is a lovely addition to any wedding dress. Drop earrings can be in line not only with the bride’s style, but also with different traditions. These traditions can include something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.

If you’re a bride-to-be, consider the following when choosing your wedding accessories:

Something Old

If you choose to include “something old” into your wedding ensemble it should be either a reflection of your life prior to getting married, or your family history.

Do you already own a pair of drop earrings? You can wear those as your something old. If you don’t have drop earrings but do own some diamond earrings (like studs), they can be turned into drop earrings with the help of a jeweler.

And since something old is about nostalgia, why not try a diamond and pearl combo for a classic yet romantic set of pearl drop earrings?

If you own another piece of jewelry you love, such as a set of pearl earrings that belonged to your mother or grandmother, add them into your diamond and pearl design.

Something New

A wedding should be a happy occasion filled with optimism for the future of the couple. The “something new” tradition reflects that hopeful optimism. It also represents happy wishes for the couple as they begin their new life together.

A pair of drop earrings with beautiful diamonds that dangle delicately from each ear is the perfect something new choice. Plus, new jewelry is always fun to shop for. If you need something new then why not make it a pair of earrings?

A sparkly new set of drop earrings featuring diamonds doesn’t have to be overly expensive. In fact, one way to save on cost is to purchase earrings that use lab grown diamonds.

The price of a lab grown diamond is 20-40% less expensive than a mined diamond. Additionally, a lab diamond is physically, optically, and chemically the same as its natural counterpart. The only difference between the two is their origin.

Something Borrowed

The idea behind something borrowed is to borrow good luck from someone who is happily married. Their good luck will hopefully rub off on you and your partner. This item can be anything, even accessories you can wear.

Something borrowed can be a pair of stunning white gold drop earrings a close family member wore on their wedding day. But it can also be other jewelry accessories like necklaces or bracelets.

Something Blue

Finally, a bride should have “something blue.” According to tradition, the color blue represents fidelity and purity and wards off the evil eye. Fortunately, you can find diamonds in every color of the rainbow (including countless shades of blue to keep the evil eye at bay).

Want a way to incorporate blue diamonds into your look but don’t want to commit to a classic diamond drop earring? You always have the option of pairing a set of blue diamond studs with versatile drop or dangle earring jackets.

Earring jackets are an extra piece or embellishment you can attach to your blue diamond studs. Not only are they a fun way to dress up your diamond earrings, but they also give you different options for wearing your jewelry even after your wedding. This way, you aren’t stuck with earrings that look so formal that you can only wear them for special occasions.
