4 Rhinestone Earring Trends to Rock This Year

Posted by Rhinestones Unlimited on Jan 13th 2022

The new year is here and I don’t know about you but I am ready to live it up! Adding a little sparkle to my outfits is one of the ways I find joy in my life. I feel like the perfect rhinestone jewelry boosts my confidence and earrings especially make me feel like a rockstar. Remember, our beautiful rhinestone earrings are not only for the stage!  They look can add sparkle to your everyday look- think diamonds and denim and go for it! On that note, here are four earring trends that I am super excited to share with you today.

Top 4 Rhinestone Earring Trends to Rock in 2022

Stud Earrings

Personally, I love to use stud earrings to dress up an office outfit or add a sophisticated touch when I’m going out. There is something so effortlessly classy and timeless about this style. And according to the latest runway looks, stud earrings are making a major comeback this year so now is the time to replenish your collection.

Drop Earrings

Larger statement pieces are on the horizon. Drop earrings can easily dress up an outfit for a special occasion or a romantic night out. I love to pair these with a little black dress to create a glamorous look. Or I’ll add them to blue jeans, a shirt, and a blazer to transition seamlessly from workplace to evening wear.

Chandelier Earrings

Chandelier earrings are the optimal addition to a dressier “look at me” outfit. Nights at the club or out on the town, when I’m trying to make a statement (although when am I not, let’s be honest), I instinctually opt for my chandelier earrings. Personally, I am thrilled to see these come back in style!

Color, Color, Color 

2022 jewelry trends are expected to be full of bright, vibrant colors and I am here for it! Right now my favorite colors of our Rivoli and Performance earrings are Amethyst, Fuchsia, Hematite, Light Siam, and Rose.

For those days I want extra sparkle, I go for earrings from our Laser Shine collection (especially Crystal Laser Shine,Peridot Laser Shine, and Rose Laser Shine). That added shine adds an extra something to my outfits and brings a smile to my face.

Quality Sparkle

After Swarovski removed their crystals from all jewelry brands other than their own, our team at Rhinestones Unlimited went to work to replace the Swarovski crystals in our earrings with a high quality replacement.  We succeeded!  The center stone of our most popular performance and rivoli earrings are now MAXIMA Crystals by Preciosa, made in the Czech Republic.  We can guarentee you that, this season, our Starlight Crystal jewelry brand is the only jewelry brand featuring European crystals.  Make sure you choose wisely if you want your crystal to truly shine.
