Aural Fixation: The Return of Big Earrings

Have you heard? Big earrings are back in a big way. They were abundant in the 2015 runway shows: Tibi’s RTW collection championed single hoops and solo shoulder-dusters; Miu Miu’s fall show was bursting with chunky floral styles; Céline’s resort line showcased enormous crystal chandelier styles. Best of all: Statement earrings are easy for jewelers to offer in both price-point–friendly looks and fine-jewelry masterpieces.
