The punk revolution rejuvenated interest in the ear cuff, à la the ’90s grunge era. Dark metal and spiked versions of the cuff triumphed, as rock ’n’ roll took over the runway and our wardrobes. The runway gave the trend much weightage this season. From Alice + Olivia’s choice of chain, to Givenchy’s stone-studded rendition – ear cuffs are revelling in their moment. But the exquisite numbers worn in the ’20s and ’50s (Marilyn Monroe’s diamond-encrusted cascading ear cuffs made headlines back in the day) weren’t far behind.
A favourite with celebrities, ear cuffs reigned on the red carpet too. Freida Pinto wore a super-subtle Ippolita number (we show you a more sculpted one by the brand), Miley Cyrus also chose minimal pieces stacked together, while Cara Delevingne and Jennifer Lawrence went OTT in their selection, keeping most of the attention on the fashion-forward jewellery. Here’s our list of fine jewellery ear cuff must-haves of the moment.
Gaia Repossi adds tribal traces with sleek, caged ear cuffs, while Delfina Delettrez brings a bit of quirk to the ear jewel. Back on home ground, Amrapali, ORRA for Forevermark and Gehna give the ear cuff a traditional spin.
