Making A Statement
Signature 80s Earrings
Oversized earrings with funky patterns and colours were all the rage in the 80s, it was the era of costume jewellery, with lots of clip on earrings starting to make an appearance. Pearls and gold hoops were also another big 80s jewellery trademark.
However, there were also some more elegant and sophisticated designs in more neutral colours, most famously sported by Princess Diana and Brooke shields. In any case, when it came to 80s earrings, there was something for everyone to express their own unique style.
A Touch of 80s Class
The more classic and elegant pieces are the ones that have made a comeback this time round, with a range of luxurious vintage designs available, from ornate gold clip on door knocker style earrings to gold hoops with dangling pearls.
Retailers of these items range from Monet or Susan Caplan Vintage where prices start form about £30, to more top end labels such as Chanel and Versace where the sky is the limit! Large broaches which were another fashion trend of the 80s are also back in style, they are often found nestled in amongst earring collections.
