There’s something especially chic about a single earring, whether it’s standing alone or stacked with other dainty pieces. This holiday season, not only will they serve as the finishing touch to any party outfit, but they also make a delightful gift to give (or receive). 

Ranging in size, metal, and material, a single earring is simple enough to wear everyday, yet it can elevate (and add welcome sparkle to) your wardrobe essentials. There are single earrings to be expected from favorite jewelry brands like MejuriStone & StrandMaria Tash, and more, but lately, even designers from Prada to Valentino have created their own versions of the elegant style. 

From the contemporary jewelry brand Eéra comes their signature Chiara earring, which is designed with 18-karat white gold and black PVD that, of course, also comes shimmering in diamonds. The oversized shape is styled best with swept back hair and a little black party dress to match. Equally as dazzling is Repossi’s Antifer 18K black gold single hoop earring that could be worn all on its own or paired with another single silver hoop earring. For the perfect pearl picks, designs from Paige Novick, Wwake, Sophie Bille Brahe, and Delfina Delettrez are delicate keepsakes that anyone on your shopping list will desire this holiday season. Huggies from Persée and Pamela Love will pack a colorful punch amongst your earring rotation, while designs from Theodora C and Stone & Stand are perfect for the more daring customer.
