An appropriate piece of jewellery can really set the mood for any occasion, from the office to a special dinner or a fun outing with friends.
We all love accessorising, but the trick is to do it better. We are not just talking about aesthetics.
Designs of your earrings or neck-pieces may help you stand out from the crowd. But why not match awesome designs with an uplifting purpose?
Jewellery is an investment, so why not invest in the upliftment of local artisans and the environment, along with your style quotient?
Here we have compiled 6 must-have earrings for you, for different occasions. Have a look.
1. Where’s the party tonight?
Why settle for the ordinary trinkets when you can be the life of the party with funky earrings from Woca designs?
The jewellery is made by a collective of home-makers in Varanasi. They blend modern designs with traditional Indian textiles to get you pairs of earrings that are unique to your taste.
Not only will you be the centre of attention at your next party but will also have helped local artisans with your fashion statement.
2. Stay chic yet simple in the office:
Inspired by geometry and the art of origami, Rhizome has a collection of earring designs that will keep your outfit simple yet unique.
