Tassel and hoop earrings became huge trends this year, which makes a case for incorporating statement accessories into our style. As the year slowly comes to a close, some of you are probably looking for the next earring style to flaunt in 2018. Our suggestion: glass earrings.
What are glass earrings exactly? They come in different varieties. Most are made by applying heat to glass rods or pieces to fuse them together. This will create beads that can be used on earrings, among other trinkets. These can also be combined with shimmery materials to create dichroic-glass jewelry. Meanwhile, some earrings contain crystals and other stones that mimic the appearance of smooth translucent glass.
We’re giving you a heads up right now before these get sold out. Peep our list so you can start shopping, stat!
Ca&Lou Glass Multiple Cuff Earrings
Why have one earring per ear when you can have five? These mini-cuff earrings have silver-toned brass glass, giving you smooth crystal-like stones. These also look low-key so you can wear them on a daily basis. Available on Farfetch.
Trollbeads Little Iris
Another low-key option is the Little Iris. Made with dichroic-glass beads, it gives off a rainbow hue when the light hits them. This also makes it easier for you to match them with neutral or multicolored ensembles. Available at Glorietta 2.
Marni Silver-Plated Glass Earrings
Think of how you can see small items in a snow globe—that’s exactly what Marni did with their oversized glass sphere earrings. Each pair has transparent spheres that show off golden dandelions. How’s that for making a statement, right? It’s a good match to your floral outfits or anything formal. Available on Net-a-Porter.
February Lifestyle “The Glass Eye” Earring
As seen on Nicole Andersson and Patricia Prieto, February Lifestyle recently put out a capsule collection of earrings. This included “The Glass Eye,” which is a hoop earring that’s as smooth as glass and uses a marble design. Available online.
Glass of Venice Kaleidoscope Spiral Earrings
Murano glass (also known as Venetian glass) is made by “using the ends of glass rods to make many small flowers inside the glass.” You can see this technique in these Kaleidoscope Spiral Earrings, which have pops of blue, green, and red on a clear surface. The earrings are two inches long, so be sure to show them off by putting your hair up. Available online.
Deepa Gurnani Latika Earring
Made with glass crystals and glass chain stones, these earrings look like bejeweled dream catchers. It has green stones, a gold chain detail, and lavender tassels. If you want to upgrade your Boho look, then grab these. Available on Shop LCP.
