From gift shopping and singing carols to work parties and cocktails, we’ve got all the Christmas earrings you need for party season. Read on to discover the perfect earrings for every festive occasion that you’ll definitely wear again – not a novelty style in sight.

14 December 2021 Editor - H. Samuel

If you thought Christmas earrings were the same kind that delighted you when you were ten (you know, the flashing Santa’s and tinsel trees found in your favourite accessories store), think again. While we fully encourage you to embrace wild style during the festive season with glittery manicures, naff knits and sequin everything, it’s a pity to buy jewellery you’ll never wear again.

There’s a happy medium here. Come December, go bigger or sparklier if you want, but there’s no need to throw all your favourites out the window. If in doubt, simply add to your stack with our earring edit and you’ll be on the right track. From diamond stars and crystal huggies to everyday studs, go-to hoops, and of course, the essential shoulder-grazing door knockers, these are the best Christmas earrings to wear for every festive occasion; each existing somewhere on a scale of subtle to extra – without reaching novelty territory, obvs.

An earring for every festive occasion

It’s almost that time of year again when a scroll through our phone calendar makes us look like a professional partygoer. A Christmas pub lunch here, a festive cocktail there and before we know it, we’re all booked up. We’re not complaining though, especially after last year's lacklustre festivities.

The Christmas season really is the best excuse to indulge your inner party-girl. This year, festive style is about going all out with dressing up (which includes going big on accessories) for every occasion. From cocktail party to carol concert, obligatory team/department/company party, Christmas shopping and the big day itself, it’s become clear that beside every outfit should be a bedecked ear. So, sit back, consult that calendar, and scroll through the Christmas earrings you need now.

The work Christmas party: hoop earrings

From desk to dinner to disco – hoop earrings are the style that keep on giving. If you’re a fan of huggies, then like us, you’ll know that more is more. After all, you can’t beat mini hoops when building a strong ear game. If, on the other hand you prefer the oversized hoop, then simplicity is often key. They work great stacked with other hoops or just worn solo, plus larger hoops are ideal for keeping your outfit fun – especially if you’re going straight from desk to Christmas work do. Chunky hoops are always popular and that’s not about to change any time soon. The wider the hoop, the better. The best bit about these is that they elevate the everyday and glam up an outfit all at the same time. For the right side of quirky, don’t be afraid to mix your metals for on-trend party appeal. We’re always on the lookout for the perfect hoops, scroll down to see our favourites.

Christmas shopping: silver earrings

Is silver the new gold? Rihanna and Beyoncé seem to think so. For the past couple of seasons, gold has dominated our jewellery looks, but statement silver earrings are quietly taking centre stage once again – and we’re not sad about it. When it comes to the metallic grey hue, Rihanna and Beyoncé aren’t alone in trading gold for its more understated counterpart – Zendaya and Kim K have also been papped sporting silver linings. There’s certainly no better time than the present to indulge in the trend, plus silver doesn’t have to be subtle, look to climbers, chandeliers, stacking studs and chain cuffs to make your Christmas shopping a glam affair. A day buying gifts always culminates in post-shopping drinks, after all.

Christmas cocktails: emerald earrings

When dressing for the upcoming party season, it pays to go by the mantra: If it looks like it should be on a Christmas tree, then it belongs in your jewellery box. The easiest way to weave a touch of magic into your party looks is with something sparkly on your ears. To look the part whilst sipping on Christmas cocktails, wear emerald earrings, a gem which is widely known to symbolise rebirth, hope and wisdom, plus you can’t get more Christmassy than green, don’t you think?

Christmas dinner parties: gold earrings

No matter what time of year, gold earrings will always be a mainstay in our collection. The jewellery essential has the power to dress up anything and, with the festive season on the horizon, this means you can add a bit of polish (and a dose of fun) to Christmas dinner parties. We’re not the only ones with an affinity for gold earrings these days and we’ve seen a lot of our fave styles pop up among the fashion set. Gold hoops will never be out of style, but right now, we're seeing updated takes on the staple with a double-hoop silhouette. Cascading drop earrings always make a statement—whether paired with a basic turtleneck or an off-the-shoulder top. Borrowing a popular trend from the '80s, coloured earrings are back and cooler than ever — we love the pop these add to any outfit. Why wear one earring when you can combine two at the same time? Whether combining metals or different silhouettes, the mismatched earring trend allows you to bring in different elements with one pair.

Christmas carol concert: stud earrings

A much as we love a statement fashion accessory, simple, sleek, wear-every-single-day stud earrings are essential for any jewellery lover. When it comes to these dainty dots, our motto is always: more is more. That Insta-worthy curation never fails to appeal to our inner magpie and as a result, these small but mighty earrings prove that, sometimes, smaller is better. The best part? If you want to wear them and never take them off, then these are perfect. It’s time to start planning your ear constellation, pronto, scroll down for the best everyday earrings for your carol concert and beyond.

Christmas eve: pearl earrings

Think pearl earrings are something you only find in your grandma’s jewellery box? Think again. Not just for June babies, everyone from TikTokers, celebrities, influencers and grandmothers alike are rocking the trend. Spotted all over the runways of late, pearl earrings are popping up in all forms that feel miles away from the studs we've been used to seeing in the lobes of past royals. Timeless and traditional but also unique and versatile, we’re seeing a wide range of pearl-wearing fans putting their own modern spin on the traditional favourite – remember Harry Styles in his single pearl earring? From threaders to statement studs, scroll down to see how to be bang-on-trend this Christmas eve.

Christmas day: diamond earrings

It’s impossible to resist diamonds, because hey, they’re a girl’s BFF, right? But what makes them even more irresistible is when they come with a purse-friendly price tag. That’s not to say, however, that we wouldn’t spend a bit more on a pair of diamond earrings to wear at Christmas, because if you can’t sparkle in style on Christmas Day, then when can you? The big day is absolutely and unequivocally the day to go brighter, sparklier and twinklier, all with a glass of something fizzy in hand. From star-shapes, meaningful gemstones, and symbols packed with significance, get ready to frost yourself and your ears (ahem, thanks to How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days for that iconic line) with these can't-pass-them-up affordable diamond earrings. ‘Tis the season to sparkle, after all.
