Designed to frame and illuminate the face, the utmost in statement earrings to wear during this hot season are extra-large with highly original shapes. Golden profiles, clear curves and twisting lines find unprecedented complicity thanks to a sculptural design that aims to create flashy yet lightweight jewellery that adorn without being heavy.
Contemporary brands such as Peruffo, Mam and Ariana Boussard-Reifel provide the proof. The maxi Mohawk earring from Peruffo's Slide collection is a yellow gold pendant with mobile elements cleverly arranged in an arc, punctuated by mini natural pearls.
The ear cuff by Man features a lengthy extremity with daisy petals, designed to dangle on the neck or encircle the ear. Designer Ariana Boussard-Reifel's Chiwara earrings sport a serpentine metal ribbon that opens around the face, enhancing its features.
