The Statement Earring, Now in XL


Remember the statement earrings of the Zoom era? Prepare for their 2023 counterpart—a statement on steroids.

They’re big, they’re bold, they’re worthy of planning entire ensembles around (even a basic T and jeans get instant polish when paired with these).

Jumbo chandelier earrings, shoulder-dusting rows of metal and stone, hoops the size of a bread plate. If “go big or go home” is the rule, these styles ensure the wearers can stay away from home for as long as they please.

But the look isn’t just about big pieces that dangle and sway—stud earrings are in on it, too. Whether they’re ’80s-tastic mega buttons, or the sculptural studs seen on the runways, this style says “so long” to the curated ear party and “hello” to the solo stunners that pack a wallop.

Below, a roundup of jumbo-size earrings that take jewelry style to the max.
